CSA Newsletter_Session 3_Week 6_06/28/12

Look what we found in the fingerling potatoes!

This little one and it’s 2 other siblings almost gave Tyler a heart attack when the taters he was digging literally jumped out of the ground!  These munchkins are probably 3 weeks old and almost ready to leave the nest, but they got evicted to a milk crate filled with straw and some of their mom’s fluff a few rows over.  We’ll be cursing them as they eat our beans in a month or so, but for now, aaaawwwwwhhhhhh……

What’s In The Box?

  • Potatoes – Red, White and Blue Mix – Mountain Rose (red), Yukon Gold (white), Purple Majesty (blue)
