Week #10 — July 9th [B week]

Hip hip hooooooray for the first week of the glorious orchard share. It started off with a big score of one of our fave stone fruits.  Plums are one of NYC’s “native fruits” — early explorers of the New York area, including Giovanni da Verrazano and Henry Hudson, mentioned beach plums in their writings and Plum Island, off the North Fork of Long Island, is named after the fruit. We are stoked to be reaping a great harvest after a pretty tough growing season thanks to the cold snap after the trees had blossomed. We intend to celebrate with lots of good eating, baking, and waxing poetic about plums…

Well, it is official CSA time since all of our shares have started. Looks like some people didnt realize Orchard share started and forgot to pick it up. But have no fear, anything not picked up goes to the fine folks at the Southside Mission.  So don’t kick yourself tooo hard — your fruit went to feed some hungry people in the hood.
