Rainy Days & Blue Potatoes

Happy Tuesday Friends!

Rainy days lately, huh? It hasn’t stopped me from getting outside and I hope it hasn’t stopped you either. I live on Sebago Lake and spend part of most of my day on my stand up paddleboard. WEEEEEELLLLL let me tell ya. I think I’m the first person this year to have actually swam in the lake. That’s right. The wind picked up when I was being daring and trying to “surf” and I fell in! Right over my head. It was chilly. And hilarous. At least according to my handsome partner and that pesky pug of mine:)

Ok, enough about me…let me tell you what you really wanna know. What kinda super duper awesome sauce produce will you be getting this week!??!?!?! You asked and I delivered. I bugged Mr. Richardson and we have more  FIDDLEHEADS! We also have some delicious Dill and Cilantro from our friends at Village Farm in Freedom, ME and All Blue Potatoes from the darlings at Green Earth Gardens. I, for one, can’t wait to see the beautiful heads of Escarole or chow down on some English Peas! We have Crimini Mushrooms for sale too! Go check it out.. I don’t wanna tell you everything!!! Go log into your accounts and switch and flip and flop and sub until you’re happy.

I’m going fishing now! You have a great day!

Be Happy,

Jillian

organic-produce-box2Brrrrr Mainers!

Holy Spring Chill! I hope this email finds you warm and hungry:) Just to let you know, since our growing season is now upon us I am receiving updated emails almost daily with new fresh and local organic items so emails will be either on Monday or Tuesday from now on.

 

Emery FarmOk….ready? Here we go! Our Wild Maine Feature Of The Week is RAMPS! Foraged organically from our buddy Mr. Richardson and his pals up in Houlton, ME. I am also psyched about the Hakurei Salad Turnips from One Drop Farm and double super duper pumped about Bok Choy from our new farm crush, Emery Farm! The rockin Spinach will be from the amazing Flying Pond Farm and some tasty Chives from Freedom Farm. Oh! We have RHUBARB! And back by popular demand are those delicious Minneola Oranges. That little pug dog that whispers(snorts) in my ear occasionally also mentioned Graffiti Eggplants will be hiding in our boxes of organic awesomeness also! What a hun! There is more but before you go check…….

 

rampsSince our Wild Maine Foraged Feature season is so short please don’t hesitate if you would like more fiddleheads, ramps, or even next weeks special…cough cough NETTLES ahem ahem. Shhhhhhh it’s a surprise. So let me know if you all are interested. I’m trying to keep the boxes interesting and exciting and different…but darn those fiddleheads were amazing. I grilled them, I sauteed them, I even steamed them and added them to a salad.

Ok, though I looooooove chatting with you all, I will leave you to go play with your orders. Don’t forget to post pictures of what your cooking on our facebook, confess your undying love for us on  yelp, or email me questions or even cute puppy pictures.

Have a great day!

Be Happy,

Jillian
