A message from Rachael:

I was away and Maryrose sent the last excellent email despite being sick but I'm back for a final reminder! Order all you need before we call and email our amazing suppliers on Tuesday night.

On Sunday we unearthed the garden. It was amazing that there is rhubarb peeking out from the snow (after we shovelled a bit). In the small hoop we found a few kale and chard leaves as well as parsley. The oregano (which spreads EVERYWHERE) is still going strong. Let me now if I can bring you some on Monday.

Beets Beets!
Good for you, good for your liver. The beet crop is still good in storage. If you ned an idea for a recipe Check our our newest recipe from Jon at http://baileyslocalfoods.blogspot.ca/2014/04/the-beet-goes-on-sandwich.html and even more at http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/04/04/beet-recipes-_n_5093510.html. They are great in smoothies. Do you think

  • Brenda Knechtel has added corn sprouts this morning. They are sweet and taste like fresh corn.
  • There are also a limited amount of white carrots (formerly part of the rainbow bags) and still a few garlic seconds in 1 lb bags from Brenda too
  • Monforte Dairy has added a few new cheeses. Look for Paradiso and Rose d'Amour added back
  • We have new lamb sausage and shoulder from Harrington Lane Farms - a great source for you lamb or ham for Easter!
  • We have a variety of amazing goat cheese from Gordon's Goat Dairy

  • We have a SALE - $1 off each pound of pastured, grass fed and finished organic ground beef from Vibrant Farms.
  • We have also added Spanish and Dutch onions from Eva Weber
  • Ambrosia Pastry had added Liege. They are a Belgium Waffle with bit of sugar throughout that carmelized on the outside giving it a crunch but still soft on the inside. They are really yummy.
  • Easter truffles also from Ambrosia Pastry
  • Cracked Coconut Butters - we sampled them at the last pickup! Try there three flavours in the pantry section (though they should be refrigerated)
  • Cold pressed juices from the Waterloo Juice Cartel
  • Organic Apples are still half price
  • We have some new sausages and back bacon from Stemmler's on the order form
This pickup is conveniently the day before Passover and one week before Easter for those of you who celebrate. Will you be getting food for a Seder meal or Easter breakfast? Look for
  • Eggs for eating or colouring (you might need an extra dozen!)
  • Flour or grains for baking Easter bread
  • Lamb
  • Turkey or chicken
  • Tofu
  • Cheese
Seed Starting Garden Kits are still available and this is the PERFECT time to start your seeds!!
My grandfather always started his seeds on Good Friday. He planted with the moon. I'm not sure if that is why his garden was so lush.
If you've never done it before or don't like making choices we have a great kit that is ready to go with a selection of Brenda's heirloom and organic favourites! You can see the full details at http://baileyslocalfoods.blogspot.ca/2014/03/garden-kits-by-brenda-knechtel.html and you will find it in the 'plants' section under 'other'  on our order form but here is a sneak peek:
