The “Tell” – Springdell Mid-Season Pickup #4


Today is our “Tell” of the Springdell Show and Tell, and we’ll be reviewing the 4th sharebox of the pre-season.

And now a brief word from Jess…  

Summertime and the Springdell Farm Summer 2015 CSA is just around the corner now!  I was at Springdell for a picnic with the boys today and saw the share boxes getting washed and scrubbed in anticipation.  New members were taking their Springdell orientation tours as they prepared for their first pickup of the season.  For us, it starts a week from tomorrow, it’s a very exciting time!

I picked up a flat of Springdell strawberries today, and though there are 8 boxes to a flat, only 6 boxes made it back to my house.  I can’t imagine where the other 2 went…

Tonight’s meal was cooked outside on the grill, Springdell Beef Kabobs from my recent Meat Subscription Pickup.  As the outside air filled with the familiar aromas of summertime grilling, I remembered Zoe’s Apple Maple Jam and decided to slather some on the kabobs during their last minute of cooking.
