Full Moon Choices

strawberry_moon 800x400

Tonight brings us the Strawberry Full Moon. The spring full moon that speeds up and encourages the burst of growth and germination of all the seeds and plants that have been lined out in the fields of our partner farmers. The moon is responsible for the massive movement of water in the oceans that result in the high and low tides each day. It exerts a powerful influence wherever water is present, and in plants water is significantly present. With all the rain we have had this will be a particularly active impulse.

You Are Amazing!

Does Leap Farm

When I wrote you all for help 6 weeks ago, I never could have predicted the outpouring of enthusiasm, sharing and passion so many of you have for what we have all created over the past 6 years. I am truly humbled.

We finished strong at 775 orders this week. I honestly think next week will be even better as many of you get back from travels and vacations to find the larder empty! I am not-so-secretly hoping for us to break 800!

I think the reason I am so humbled and grateful is because so many advisors and even I feared that being so honest about our situation and asking you directly for help would not work.

For the month of June we’re featuring some of our top foods that make putting dinner on the table a snap!  Stock up on pasta, tortillas and refried beans – they all freeze well- and unopened sauces and cheese keep for weeks and once opened should be used within a week.

Pasta and Sauces from Valicenti Organico need minimal prep and with the addition of a Spinach or Kale Salad you’ll have a well rounded meal in minutes.  

Tortillas, Refried Beans and Cheddar Cheese can be whipped up into quesadillas or Beef, Fish, or Tempeh Tacos- and garnished with seasonal veggies like quick pickled Radishes, Scallions and Tomatoes.
