<span class="&quot;titleText&quot;">What is Orange, Fuzzy on the outside and the first sign of summer?</span> <span style="font-family: 'Calibri,';">Peaches are here! The first spring crop from california have arrived. We also have cherries on the way for next week and a few apricots this week so enjoy the heat and look forward to taste of summer next week. Locally, early greens still from Peas on Earth and Sunrise Gardens and the last of the 2010 potatoes from Vince Halwa. </span> <b>Some Price Changes</b> We have enough volume in goats yoghurt now to be able to lower prices by 50 cents. If you haven't tried these products now is the time! Produced right here in Alberta and bought direct from the farm. Earth loose leaf tea has also been reduced. This is grown and processed by Chick-a-dee farms right here in Alberta and is certified organic. Our total list of items allows you to mix and match to make your perfect box of Organic produce. When we can'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. &nbsp; &nbsp; <table cellspacing="&quot;15&quot;" cellpadding="&quot;0&quot;" bgcolor="&quot;#edf0e9&quot;"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p align="&quot;center&quot;"><img title="&quot;earth_coffee&quot;" src="&quot;/uploadedImages/009_-_This_Week/earth_coffee.png&quot;" alt="&quot;earth_coffee&quot;" width="&quot;195&quot;" height="&quot;59&quot;" /></p> <p align="&quot;center&quot;"></p> </td> <td><span class="&quot;titleText&quot;">Earth Coffee Samplers</span> <span style="font-family: 'Calibri,';">Coffee is an individual taste product and everyone's tastes are different.

He was so impressed with Vancouver that he returned to Newfoundland and brought his family with him to settle here in 1906. After purchasing a house on Wales Street, which came with 6 cows, he began to build up Avalon Dairy. In the same year, he purchased acreage at 5805 Wales, which is the present location of the Dairy. The farm house was built in 1908 and is still in use. Avalon is a family business. It is the oldest continuously operating Dairy in British Columbia.</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <span class="&quot;titleText&quot;">Saturday Market Pickup is Finished.</span> The last Saturday pickup was May 14. Thanks to everyone who took advantage this winter. We open at the Downtown Farmer's Market on June 26 and you can pickup your box there if you like. Saturday Market Pickup will restart again in the fall after Halloween when it cools off again. There are over 20 available products including those in the standard box. You can use the 'Choose My Box' page to mix and match your box and build the combination of these items that fits best for you! The order page will cap the value of your box but you can substitute for things like more fruit if you wish. We encourage everyone to give it a try. And if you want more than the box value will allow, purchase extra or add the 'extra fruit' to your order. <span class="&quot;titleText&quot;">Storage Tips</span> Here are <a title="&quot;some" href="&quot;/storage-tips.aspx&quot;">some tips </a>for storing the contents of your box. If you are finding that your greens and carrots are not lasting, make sure you are putting them in your crisper or a sealed tupperware container. Your fridge will de-hydrate them within a day or two. If they do go limp, give them a 10-15 minute bath in cold water and they will perk up again. They are not spoiled,just dry! <span style="font-family: 'Calibri,';">The Organic Box: Week of May 22, 2011</span> <table border="&quot;0&quot;" cellspacing="&quot;1&quot;" cellpadding="&quot;0&quot;" align="&quot;center&quot;"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="&quot;boxHeaderCentre&quot;" align="&quot;center&quot;" valign="&quot;top&quot;" bgcolor="&quot;#9bbb59&quot;">The Organic Box</td> <td class="&quot;boxHeaderCentre&quot;" align="&quot;center&quot;" valign="&quot;top&quot;" bgcolor="&quot;#9bbb59&quot;">The Organic Singles Box</td> <td class="&quot;boxHeaderCentre&quot;" bgcolor="&quot;#9bbb59&quot;">Item</td> <td class="&quot;boxHeaderCentre&quot;" bgcolor="&quot;#9bbb59&quot;">Producing Farm</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="&quot;boxHeaderCentre&quot;" align="&quot;center&quot;" valign="&quot;top&quot;" bgcolor="&quot;#edf0e9&quot;">bunch</td> <td class="&quot;boxHeaderCentre&quot;" align="&quot;center&quot;" valign="&quot;top&quot;" bgcolor="&quot;#edf0e9&quot;">bunch</td> <td class="&quot;boxContentLightCentre&quot;" bgcolor="&quot;#edf0e9&quot;">Green Onion -
