Week of December 5th – NO CSA DEC 21-29th!!!!

We are closing down for the holidays. No CSA boxes will be available for two weeks, Dec 21-29th. None 🙂 This allows us all to take a break and do a little traveling with our families. We will come back with a renewed sense and ready to eat our veggies.

Did you know that radishes are an anti-congestive? This means that they decreases congestion of the respiratory system including irritation of the nose, throat, wind-pipe and lungs that can come from colds, infections, allergies and other causes. They are a great disinfectant and rich in vitamins, which further protects the respiratory system from infections.* I’m seeing a lot of colds going around right now and a lot of runny noses and congestion so I am definitely eating my radishes this week.
