Dear CSA Member,

We hope you are enjoying the bounty each week.  

As you can imagine, it is difficult to budget our production with our farmers and to provide as much selection as we try to bring to you each week.  We really try to make sure that everyone (no matter if you are coming at the beginning or end) has a great selection to choose from.  

This email serves as a courtesy reminder that baskets in step 2 and 3 should not exceed 3 pounds (3.2 lbs with basket weight) for a small and 6 pounds (6.3 lbs for basket weight) for a large AND produce should fit into the basket.  We realize that certain items don't fit into the baskets very well, however, these basket weights are based on the heaviest items and it is not a guarantee that everyone should get 3 pounds or 6 pounds.  

The baskets are a unit of volume, not weight.  Produce varies in weight by the bushel.  For example, a bushel of tomatoes may equal 50 pounds whereas a bushel of peppers may equal 24 pounds.  By this principal, the baskets may not weigh the same when you fill them.  This is why we say, should not exceed 3 pounds for a small basket or 6 pounds for a large basket AND produce should fit into the basket.  

Thank you for understanding, we are simply trying to get everyone on the same page as we know it has been confusing.  Please feel free to ask for assistance at your pickup regarding weights.  We are happy to help and happy to have you at our CSA.

The CSA pickup Thursday evening at Westland Middle school will be short due to Back to School Night at the school.  We will hold pickup on September 4th from 4:30-6pm.  

For anyone who cannot make pickup by 6pm:

You may pickup at another CSA this week or at our roadside stand this weekend.  You may also pickup any day this week at our Jones Mill Rd. stand which is open daily from 9am-7pm. Please keep in mind that Sunday starts our new week, so we are asking that you do not pickup this Sunday at North Chevy Chase Elementary.  You may pickup at the stand on Sunday. 

Thank you and see you this week!
