A message from Rachael:

It's March!

Call me crazy for looking ahead, but we have only two more Monday pickups and then we'll be running every two weeks in May and then weekly once the STRAWBERRIES are ready! Before the pickup on the 24th will be the first day of Spring! This would be the pickup to plan a few special items for your Easter meals. We'll ask Katharina for some awesome chocolates to add so that you can offer your loved ones beautiful chocolate treats that are organic and fair trade! WIll you be serving lamb, ham or tofu? Are you celebrating a different holiday? How do you incorporate buying locally into your celebrations?

We're going through our freezer and trying to use up the frozen strawberries - but not too fast - and working on the frozen peaches too. The kids are undecided, but I've started adding some frozen peas to smoothies.
I froze some grapes this year - we'll see how they are as I haven't opened them yet!

I'd love to hear what you 'put up' for the winter. What did you love the most? What do you wish you stored more of? What didnt you get through as fast as you thought (peas for me)?

So enough about the things in my freezer that aren't for sale. Here are some awesome local foods you can get your hands on soon!
  • New crop maple syrup around the corner! Let's hope that March has a bit more snow and a slow melt.
  • Calves are being born and the milk is flowing. Look for a few new cheeses from Monforte Dairy!
  • Beefsteak Tomatoes from Floralane!
  • Asparagus in May (on the 10th, hopefully!)
  • Seedlings from Sarah's Kitchen Gardens May 24th only! Nathan from Nith Valley will have seedlings too!
  • Strawberries in June! (I think I said that already)

Hmm.. Can you see that my sales skills are lacking? So glad that you come out for more that just my emails!
