Hello and welcome to week 9! We have some new veggies this week and there are lots of new things coming up. This is an ODD box week which means Every Other Week (EOW) boxes are at these sites this week. Farm, Cambridge, Stoughton, Monona, Vilas Ave., and Oregon. 

Please check off your names at the sites when you pick up. This makes it really easy for us to figure out who has not picked up which helps the communication to that member go quicker. If you are sending someone to pick up your box or eggs or both, please make sure they check off your name as well. Also please make sure you are not picking up an EOW share during a week that you shouldn't. We don't make extra boxes for the sites. If you picked up an EOW last week you should not pick one up this week. If you have any questions about what type of share you have, please email Andy.

 Thanks and have a great weekend!

Hello and welcome to week 8 of your CSA share with us. We hope you survived the weather ok last night. It was quite a bit of rain so hopefully basements are dry. Funny thing is the onion field was in need of a drink so we are sort of happy but also frustrated that we won't be able to get things tilled and planted anytime soon with that much rain. 

Here is the newsletter.

Have a great weekend!

Hello and welcome to week two of the 2017 CSA with Sprouting Acres. This is an even week box so Every Other Week shares this week are only at these locations-Hermina, East Johnson St., MMSD Doyle Building, Regent St. and Dorchester Way. If you have an Every Other Week share and you picked up last week you do not pick up this week. 

We hope you make some delicious meals with your produce. Remember, the early season boxes tend to be the lighter leafier items and then summer hits along with the heavier bulky items. You are eating with the seasons. 

Have a great weekend!
