A Message from Rachael:

Oh the local strawberries. If you go to the market or so many stores you can get local strawberries RIGHT NOW! They are amazing. Why don't we have them? Well, they mostly come from Niagara and Norfolk and we don't have a connection with a grower that grows unsprayed or organic berries and is willing to bring them to us on Friday. So we're waiting until we can buy the berries that have been grown for us close to home. If the organic strawberries from Paul Bowman will be ready on the 8th, we'll try for a pickup then, but otherwise we'll keep you waiting to eat (and freeze for winter) the jewels grown by our very local farmers. Trust me it will be worth the wait! If you can't wait, make your way to one of our Farmers' Markets or Vincenzo's or any other number of great local stores who have brought those lovely berries into town!

It's still asparagus season. I'm sure that the asparagus farmers are wishing for rain (aren't we all?). I hear that we're getting rain this week so we can look forward to some tasty sweet asparagus. Want a new way to cook it? Try roasting it like Kristin does: http://www.seasonalfamily.com/2011/05/roasted-asparagus.html

Here are a few things you should think about ordering:

  • Peanuts - We need to wait until the fall for more peanuts so get them while you can!
  • Peanut butter should be available all summer, but maybe I need to remind you to get some.
  • This will be the last flour offering until the beginning of July! Stock up for June baking - especially fresh fruit pies!
  • Maple Rhubarb jam is back! Freshly made by From These Roots.
  • Pak Choi and other Asian greens. My kids love them.
  • Croissants and 100 Mile Spelt bread - Golden Hearth will bake for you in this heat!
  • Pasta and noodles from J&D Peters
  • Tortilla chips - I love to have a bag for the kids and I to snack on!
  • Basil and tomatoes... classic
  • Organic Jona Gold Apples... Always a great snack
  • Salad greens and braising greens from Soiled Reputation!
  • Swiss Chard and Garlic Scapes from Nith Valley - just added!
