costners machines are reportedly working very well and BP has ordered 35 of them. the sioux indians have issued a prayer as well. its a stretch to find some good news about that and many other topics but i do have some good news about your prospects for fourth of july cole slaw. and the summer crops are looking pretty good. if you have extra jars - any jar - that you dont want please drop them off we are going to be jarring up kimchee and miso and some other stuff in the next few weeks. see you tomorrow.

CSA June 23rd

Hey Guys- sending this reminder out a bit early. CSA is TOMORROW!
Should have loads of beets. We are hoping for carrots and cabbage but not sure.
All this rain may have delayed them. Eggs are light this week...we changed their food
which may have been the cause but human error with a bucket of them also attributed to
the decline. Greens and Italian Parsley as well. See you tomorrow!

i dont understand why all the worlds oil companies dont come to the gulf and just start harvesting all this oil. not that simple? i heard they are talking about setting off a nuke to seal the leak. (what?) its too much - eat some beets and be at least thankful that BP finally cowboyed up and brought in kevin costner. kevins got guts and guts is enough. rick poore walleye fry tomorrow?

lots of different greens and other stuff coming tomorrow. pick up a few extra lemons maybe - if you like lemon juice on steamed greens. barb thinks there are some beets ready which would officially kick off the year of the beet. beets are great with chef boyardee raviloi. rick poore has not yet confirmed if he is frying walleye filets in the driveway tomorrow.

csa wednesday

nice rain! csa gets better tomorrow. they say to "stagger" the plantings of lettuce so there is a continual harvest. this year all of them just sat there and now many even though planted weeks apart are ready to eat so plan on eating a lot of salad this week. maybe eat one everyday and just keep the salad dressing going like a sourdough mix. (or kombucha which barb has been making a lot of and its delicious.) i apologize that the eggs have been low so far. when we started csa this year we were getting four dozen a day and now its around three. i think too many are breaking and the chickens are now being fed oystershells which toughens the shells up but i am going to buy some more adult layers as well. If you see my sister kathleen tomorrow be sure to wish her happy birthday.
