The “Show” – Spring CSA Pickup #6

Hi everyone, Jess and Sarah here.  First, (Jess talking), my apologies for the faux pas in the most recent “Tell” in which I called last week’s pickup the last spring pickup of the season.  The last spring pickup of the season is actually this week! I’m hoping I didn’t lead anyone astray and if I did, my apologies. I look forward to finishing out this week of springtime goodness with you before the summer CSA begins.  HERE is the final Springdell Spring CSA pickup of 2017:


  • Eggs
  • Cucumbers
  • Kale

For those new to the Summer CSA, you’ll often see signs that say “take one bunch of kale” or something similar. Be sure to pay close attention to whether you are grabbing the correct amount of items for your size of share!  (Full shares, for example, might take 2 bunches, where a small share may take only 1 bunch…)  This is an important rule as it is a bummer for those who come to pick up their share at the end of the day only to find someone accidentally took their veggies.  Courtesy is key, thank you!


The boys were enjoying “kale pops” from the spring CSA.  Only a few leaves actually made it home.  Though I am not a natural born fan of kale (I have learned many ways to enjoy it), my children are a different story. They were born into it, and the sweet taste of early summer kale is the best!  

The sun wasn’t working with me for this photo, but the lambs were huddled together so sweetly cooling off and looking to see if we’d share our kale with them.  Sorry not today, little ones!

Strawberry Festival is on the brain this week, and we are looking forward to spending a warm summer day on the Westford Town Common this Saturday (come enjoy some Springdell Strawberries) before settling in to enjoy the Summer CSA and all that it has to offer.  Meanwhile, let’s get cooking!
