Order for Delivery on July 10, 2012.

Extended ordering period: Order by Saturday @ 5pm
Dear Farm-to-Table Participants,

This past week has been a very challenging one for our delivery route. It has us questioning our process and timing, which is good for you all. We are looking into ways of avoiding late deliveries and quite possibly two delivery days.

One good piece of this is that we had more deliveries over more towns and thats partly what made things delayed. Other than that, the logistics of farmers bringing their food to the facility on delivery day is going to change. Farmers always harvest their food the day before or the morning of delivery day; so we will be asking our farmers to harvest their food the day prior only! To put it simply, when you purchase food from a grocery store, it has likely been trucked across the country, or locked in a facility, or multiple facilities for an indefinite amount of time. With Farm-to-Table, your food is the FRESHEST it can possibly be.

For those that did not get their deliveries on time, we will be working out a credit for the order. It was our bad, and we love having you as customers.

[[[I had to go pick up the summer squash in place of the zucchini which was not available. this contributed to the late deliveries and the no zucchini.]]]

If you harvest your scapes young and tender, you can chop them into salads or use them as a topping, like scallions. More mature scapes can be sauteed lightly and used over pasta, with eggs, mixed with cooking greens, pickled or pretty much in any dish that would be complemented by garlic. My favorite way to use them is to make a garlic scape pesto. I've listed some great recipes to get the juices flowing, below.
