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…

Maple Syrup in the house! Our annual maple syrup share distribution was this week. (Just in time too because we were on our last few drops of syrup from last season) It was a bit overcast, with some sprinkles of rain, but we had another smashing distribution. Great to see all of our B-weekers, the world’s cutest (and smallest) dog, and of course, our Circle C Maple farmers. It was an action packed week with us distributing 4 things: Greig Farm share, Feather Ridge Farm Egg share, Northwind Farm Meat share, & Feather Ridge Chicken share.

Asparagus Attack!

Southside CSA is back. Last night was Week 1 of a 29 week season. Big thanks to all our volunteers who really stepped up to the plate and volunteered during our first distribution. The first week can be a bit hectic as we find mistakes and get back into the groove of things. Everyone was really patient with my constant state of crazy!!  But all the hustle was worth it because last night was great…
