We frequently get requests to post a list of the CSA box contents early in the week so people know what other food they need to buy each week. We’ve tried to do it a few times, but haven’t kept up with it.
We’re going to try again starting in a week or two, posting a tentative list on the website each Monday. It will be posted under the “Member News” tab.
Most weeks we plan out the box contents on Friday or Saturday. But you might be amazed how much can change on the farm over the weekend. Sometimes it’s a good change: we come into work on Monday and discover that something we’ve been waiting for is finally ready to harvest. For example, at some point in March we hope to start picking asparagus.
Other times, it’s a bad change. A problem arises with one or more of the crops we had planned on harvesting for your boxes. And because Mondays are usually a scramble — as they are at many workplaces — we often don’t find out until late in the day. Then we have to find a different item to substitute for it.
These will be the days when the CSA box list that we post on the website ends up being different from the list here in the newsletter. And that’s why the list will be always be “tentative”.
