Two tips for your CSA flower picking

We are finally getting a nice quantity of flowers in our CSA fields. Our members enjoyed picking some beautiful bouquets today!

We spend so much time communicating about our CSA vegetables, I thought I'd do a quick blog post on some ideas I saw in the fields today.

First, Debbie Wickham's bouquet from this morning. Do you see what is making her colors pop? That's kale! Red kale to be precise. So consider cutting a few leaves of red kale for your bouquet. Kale is on u-pick pretty much all season long.

And this is Tracy's bouquet. Here's a transporting tip: bring a tall travel coffee mug filled with water to upick. When you're done picking, put the flowers in the cup, and put it in the cup holder of your car. No spilling!

Looking forward to lots more beautiful bouquets this year!
