Hello! We are approaching the first week of the 2014 CSA season. 

We are on our fourth week of Spring Shares and then we move right into the main season shares the a week later. We will be sending out another email this week letting you know details about your specific start date if you purchased an EOW share. You will either be the odd weeks, or the even weeks. We will send you specific dates that you should put on your fridge or set reminders in your phone so you know when you pick up.

We also wanted to let you know that if you are looking for info on your membership, pickup location, balance due, etc., you can scroll down on the right side of the website, www.sproutingacres.com and click on membership status. If you would like to change your pickup location to one that was added after you signed up, please let us know. We now have a pickup behind East High School in Madison at the 4&20 Bakery and Cafe. We also added a site in Monona on Tompkins Drive. 

Look for an email from us in the next two days that will have more detailed info about first day pickup next week. If you have any questions now or after the next email please don't hesitate to ask.

Hello and welcome to week 3 of the Spring Share. This week you have some homework to do. Instead of giving you a recipe, we gave you some recipe links to peruse. Just click on the link and there are ample recipes to choose from this week. Try one, two, or all of them! Try something new. Creamy asparagus soup would taste good this last (hopefully) cold week of spring. Marinated and grilled Pac choi is also delicious. Also, don't forget, there are recipes on the website as you scroll down on the right side. They are not all of ours but there is a nice mix from farms all over the country. 

We hope you enjoy Week 3 and hopefully you can make something this week that warms up your house. 

Below is the newsletter link...

We are unable to take enough to the market tomorrow so we will not be at the market. We are still holding out for some more veggies before we hit more markets. Next week is looking better. Have a great weekend.

Happy Thursday and welcome to week #2 of the Spring Shares. Don't forget to return your boxes each week or bring a bag with you so you don't have to take the boxes home. Also, the basic storage rule for almost all vegetables is to put them into a bag and into the fridge. Some come in bags but some we put straight into the box. The weather looks like it's changing for the better and the veggies are taking off. The newsletter link is below and can also be found at the website, www.sproutingacres.com under the news/blog.

Hello all, not sure if you had heard this one but.....


GHC Rebates
Group Health Cooperative announced a change to its CSA Health Insurance Rebate as of March 1. Everyone on the policy age 18 and older can apply for a $100 reimbursement (points!) toward the cost of the share (in the past it was $100 for individuals and $200 for couples and families). This is helpful if you have young adults on your policy.
You can find out more at this link from Fairshare

The four week Spring Share option starts this Thursday and lasts for four weeks. We do still have two spring shares available if anyone is interested. We are looking at Rhubarb, salad mix, spinach, green garlic and more this Thursday for the first spring box. Let us know right away if you are interested.

Due to lack of nice weather for the plants to grow and needing to fill our first Spring Share boxes, we will not be at the Tuesday market at the Wil-Mar Center tonight. Wish we could be.
