Dear CSA Member,
We want to thank everyone for the positivity at the CSA sites. It sure has been a tough summer. We received about 15inches of rain these past few weeks. We want to remind everyone again, to please use up or preserve your shares quickly as they will not hold as long as usual due to the excess rain.
