<p class=&quot;titleText&quot;>A Berry Strawberry Treat<span class=&quot;titleText&quot;>.</span></p> <p>We&apos;ve had some strawberry challenges again this summer so&#160;Eduardo Martinez our strawberry farmer is offering a fantastic deal on his yummy berries - $3.10 a pound so we have some for everyone.&#160; The flavour of these berries is fantastic, sweet and not bitter.&#160; Eric and Ruby from Peas on Earth have peas for us - either snow or sugar snap.&#160; And there are beautiful heads of Romaine Lettuce.&#160; Danny was in the field last week and they are beautiful and ready for harvest, standing tall and delicious in the field.&#160; Enjoy!</p> <p>Again, we have Sea Beans (also known as Sea Asparagus).&#160; If you didn&apos;t get some last week, make sure you have them now.&#160; They are only here for 2 weeks a year so this is it.&#160; Those of you that were with us last&#160;year will remember these salty treats.&#160; They are wildcrafted&#160;from the Pacific Ocean on Vancouver Island.&#160;&#160; </p> <p>Our total list of items allows you to mix and match to make your perfect box of Organic produce. When we can&apos;t get it locally, I find sustainably-produced food from non-local farms and bring it here. Good, real food, available year-round and bought from small farms and producers at a fair price.&#160;</p> <table cellspacing=&quot;15&quot; cellpadding=&quot;0&quot; bgcolor=&quot;#edf0e9&quot;> <tbody> <tr> <td><p><br /><img title=&quot;Might Trio&quot; alt=&quot;Might Trio&quot; src=&quot;/uploadedImages/009_-_This_Week/Might Trio.png&quot; width=&quot;170&quot; height=&quot;110&quot; /></p> </td> <td><h1>Mighty Trio Organics </h1> <p>Mighty Trio Organics is a family owned and operated business located on a beautiful acreage just outside of Redwater Alberta.
