We had an email from our CSA, Springdale Farm, about a month ago telling us that because of the lousy spring we've had, our first box won't be available until about the third week of June. That's not all that late, but we always are looking forward to the first box of the year with eager anticipation.
Today I got an email from them saying that they have lots of lettuce & spinach available, and will make the first delivery this Friday! Apparently the spring wasn't as bad on the farm as they thought it would be.
Saturday also marks the start of the first Farmers' Market of the season in Wauwatosa.
It's a great time of year to cook.
Here is a good article on Wisconsin Spirits in NYC in today's New York Times. "Little Wisco!"
