Dear BGF CSA Members,

 

You have another great week of tomatoes. Get beyond using them in the basic salad. Enjoy a delicious tomato sandwich - a BLT or a Frisco (that's the ol' fashion grilled cheese with a slice of tomato). Maybe even try makinga fresh salsa, relish, soup, or stew. There is more than plenty of information on the internet to find some recipe that may tickle your taste buds.

Dear BGF CSA Members,

 

 August is always a tremendously busy time on the farm. So many crops are ready all at once that it is sometimes difficult to decide which items will go in the box and which will have to wait until the following week.  But again, another great box! In fact, that is why we're late getting this letter out...we got a last minute treat - cantaloupes! And in our excited rush, there is a typo in the spelling of the word "cantaloupe" in our list of items for the week. Oops!

Dear BGF CSA Members,

 

 August 1st! It seems summer has passed us by...the camps are over, sport practices begin, and the start of school is just around the corner. But wait! Let's not wollow in such thoughts yet. We have much more of the season to enjoy...at least at the table. We have a great box this week of some summer favorites. Enjoy!

Dear BGF CSA Members,

 

 Alas! The rain dances are working! The fields look spectacular - fresh and green, just the way we like 'em!  And what pretty boxes we have this week - green, red, purple and yellow. Hooray, for summer sweet corn! It's finally here. Turn off the oven. Instead, grill and eat outdoors this week. Drink iced tea and watch butterflies dance. Enjoy!

Dear BGF CSA Members,

 

 Refresh yourself, and stay "cool as a cucumber." Eat a few slices of one as a pick-me-up in the afternoon instead of drinking a soda - same effect without the calories or sugar. Or cut two slices and place them over closed eyelids to refresh and rid fatigue or puffiness from your eyes. Even try them as an alternative to lemons/limes in your drinks. Enjoy!

 

And...

keep on dancing for rain!

Dear BGF CSA Members,

 

 Funny how we set our air conditioners to the same temperatures we complained about in winter! Finally, this week we are feeling a bit of a reprieve from the harsh heat. Take time this week to enjoy the outdoors - sit in the shade of a tree, play picture clouds, sip a lemonade, dip your feet in a pool, eat a popcicle, gaze upon a sunset, catch fireflies...remember the days of childhood summers.  Ahhh!

...and remember to eat your veggies!

Dear BGF CSA Members,

 

By joining a CSA, you make a silent pledge to go green. But for such a celebratory week as our nation's birthday, you'd like we could colorfully illustrate that. No. The only patriotic color in the boxes this week in red, red tomatoes. Everything else is literally green. Just know, we're doing our part to keep you healthy.
