This Week in VI Locally Grown


Hello everyone,
Thanks for helping make our Honey forum a huge success! How about that mead from Wanda Wright eh? :). This week we don’t have any special events. However, if you come early you could get a tour of the lawaetz museum. Just let me know if/when you’re coming at csa@ridge2reef.org.

We’ll have lots of veggies this week, so stop on by. Why not order a local drink from Queens Maubi? It’s pretty hot for October!

Cheers

This week is our Honey Forum! Stop on by to join a panel discussion about our island bees :).

As usual we will have a large assortment of greens, squash, value added items, and more. You should check out one of our newest growers, Jayme Cohn with Hummingbird of Paradise, she has beautiful flower arrangements if you’re looking for a gift.

Blessings,

We also will have some summer and winter squash available on the table. Also….Pumpkins :)

Good Morning,
The market is open for orders and we have some new items this week! We just listed mustard greens, komatsuna, and tokyo bekana which are great greens for salads or cooking. Mustard greens have a bit of a spice, but it diminishes when you cook it :).

Did you know we have various drinks for sale from Queen’s Maubi? Why not try Neil’s famous ginger beer, it’s awesome! By the way, Ridge2Reef’s fall CSA starts in one week! So if you’re interested, now is the time to sign up.—> http://ridgetoreef.csasignup.com/members/types
