Zucchini has arrived!
Growing and eating food seasonally is so fun.  You get to celebrate the bounties of each season and really savor your favorite flavors.  You do your best to enjoy your favorites while they last; maybe you preserve them by canning or pickling, but eventually they come to an end and you adapt and look forward to what's next.  Asparagus has come to an end, but the great thing is that you enjoyed it at its peak flavor when it was in season and you'll enjoy it just as much next spring; distance truly does make the heart grow fonder!  Now that summer is in full swing, the zucchini is growing like crazy! There are so many good zucchini recipes and we will sprinkle them throughout the newsletter as the season continues.  Enjoy!


* CSA share pick up at the Wednesday market in the Big Lots parking lot from 3-6pm.  See the green box below for what to expect in your share this week! *
