A Message from Rachael:
Time to make some room in your freezer for shelled peas!
These are tasty peas! We have 1 lb and 10 lb bags, so you can choose to get a bunch of small bags or one (or more) larger bags to throw in the freezer. We bought these last year and they were amazing all winter. Great in curries and soups or with fried onions and mushrooms. I ordered a 1 lb bag for eating on Friday. They are better than candy! These are very fresh and will be kept on ice. Be sure to freeze or eat them as soon as possible. You can spread them on a cookie sheet or freeze the whole bag and chip off what you need all winter long!

Things to order this week:
  • Peaches, Plums, Blueberries, Raspberries and Cherries!
  • Maple syrup to sweeten anything! Have you tried it on Yogurt?
  • Shelled peas in 1 lb or 10 lb bags
  • We'll be stocking up on jams and preserves from Country Flavour. If you want some, this is a great time to order!
  • Bok Choi and Tat Soi from Nathan at Nith Valley! Braising Greens too!
  • Pickling cucumbers now available in bulk! It's pickle making season!
  • Meat for the BBQ!
From Mary Jane regarding fruit: REGINA CHERRIES
We are very excited to have Regina cherries (pronounced with a hard G 'Regeena')! It is not often we have these cherries. Because they are one of the latest varieties they are often split by the rain....but not this year! The Regina cherries are a firm cherry almost crisp in texture and once again very rich in colour! They are wonderful for eating, canning, freezing and dehydrating.

The Early Golden plums are always the first plum of the season. They are a smaller yellow plum with a reddish cheek. They offer a combination of zing (tartness) from under the skin with sweetness from the flesh!

This early peach is the Harrow Diamond variety. It is a smaller peach that comes away from the pit quite easily (although it is not classified as a free stone). It is a very nice eating peach that has good flavour! It is a Canadian bred peach. I have to admit it is one of my favorites!

Just a reminder - All the fruit we get from Eva and Rene are 'tree run'. We do this to avoid the sorting station that insists on fungicidal baths, fuzz removal (peaches) and paraffin wax coatings!. This means some fruit will be larger and some smaller, some more ripe and some less ripe all in the same box. Eva and Rene let our fruit ripen on the tree much longer than if they were to pick it for the shippers! The shippers want green fruit and we want tree ripened fruit!!

Eva and Rene grow traditional tea roses along with antique roses which are very popular in Europe! The antique roses look similar to what you used to see in grandmothers or even your great grandmothers garden! They are varieties of old that are being reintroduced by Eva and Rene.

With thanks,
Maryrose and Rachael
