Tennessee & Alabama CSA

Newsletter May 4, 2021

Good morning CSA members!

We anticipated our first CSA deliveries would begin next week but lo and behold, we will have to postpone our first deliveries, same as we did last year. John tells me that some of the crops are at the stage of needing to be a bit more mature to harvest, so as of now by just by putting the harvesting off for a week, it looks as though the 3rd week in May should work out as a better start date. We are at the mercy of nature right now.  We strive each year to have a nice box of veggies and fruit for everyone to kick off the first delivery of the season, but some years we are taught a lesson in patience. This is one of those years.

Please read your Weekly Newsletter right here in this spot every week, to see  “What’s in the Box” this week. We will also toss in a few tips, which we hope will help you make the most of your weekly share. If you have a favorite recipe from a website, send us the link if you would like to share it with everyone in CSA and we will pass it along. Only criteria is that it’s easy to make, doesn’t take a lot of time, includes veggies or fruit  and is delicious.

We will be updating our Pick-Up locations page and pick up times most likely this weekend. The pick up times at most places should not vary much if any. At least that’s our plan.  For Workplace location pick up times, please check with your Coordinator.

You will receive Emails from us before the season begins with contact information for your Site Coordinators at each delivery location. Keep their numbers handy. You will also get information on what to do if this or that happens, etc.  These emails will come from drf@hughes.net (Doe Run Farms)  Add drf@hughes.net to your safe senders email list.

We look forward to seeing you soon with vans loaded with home grown food!

Peace,

Judy
