What's New?

Please note that we've started a new method for distributing the newsletter, which may require a bit more clicking through to access your info. We now send the link to the newsletter on the website via an email alert through Farmigo. Due to the alerts scheduling timeline, the newsletters will come out early Tuesday morning, before we can be sure everything comes in as planned.

We ask that you wait until 3:00p.m. before reading the newsletter, so we can adjust anything that changes in the shares or that needs to be communicated.

The online store will have consistent hours of 4:00p.m. Tuesday - 10:30a.m. Wednesday.

For those still following Sara and Stephen's adventures of moving onto the sailing catamaran in Argentina (, our move date is approaching quickly (Feb. 27th), so we're making these adjustments to make sure we're still able to get the weekly info out while she is out of the country.

CSA Week - Refer-a-Friend

National CSA Week is Feb. 20-26 and we'll have a special offer for members who encourage friends and family to join (either directly, or after a trial share at the start of Season 16)!

Initial signups will need to take place by March 3rd, but we're finalizing the specifics--so check out next week's newsletter and Facebook posts for all the details, and start thinking on who you know who might be a good match for Fair Shares!

Edible & Delicious Chickweed

Harvey Yoder offered us some chickweed this week, and with the dearth of fresh greens at this time of year, we took him up on it. Some of you may recognize this somewhat common plant, maybe you've even tried it. The following website tells all about it, and states:

Chickweed is a not only a super plant in terms of its nutritional acclaim, but it’s also delicious.
The flavor is often compared with corn silk. It’s pleasant and mild. Chickweed is excellent raw -- use it like sprouts; eat it in sandwiches, wraps, etc. And of course it’s a great base for salad.

Notes on Trades and Orders

If you have questions or an issue to resolve, please email rather than replying to the email or we may not see it.

The share clipboards below include the fresh produce on your list, but the cart in your Farmigo account lists only the tradable items in your share. You must spend the total credit value in your cart but you are welcome to buy extra.

Note regarding "Choice" items in your shares: The tradable "choice" items will be in your cart, and you can click the item to see what choices it mentions in the description, then make your selection via the online store by placing your choice in your cart and deleting the "choice" from your cart. For the produce wildcards and choices, we can't always guarantee whether you'll get to make the choice or we do--that's the CSA aspect of our program.

Here's a video demo on how to make trades. Here's the link to LOGIN.
Please check the descriptions of items! Some things are sold by the pound so the actual price will be different from what's listed in the store. If what's in your bag is not what you were expecting, give it back. If you're at the Mothership, you may be able to choose something else.

Pro Tip: You can browse the store when it's "closed" by logging out of your account.
