Happy 4th of July!
We hope you enjoy this week's CSA items and are able to put some to use in
your Independence Day celebrations. All of us at Goodness Grows wish you a
happy, healthy, safe, and delicious 4th of July!
If you find you can't make it during the pick up time, please let us know and we can arrange
a Friday visit. If you are not feeling well, we can bring your share out to your car to facilitate social distancing. Just give us a call at 330-549-9408.
Number of crops ready and amount of harvest of a given crop will vary throughout the season. We will provide at least six items each week. If we have any crop issues, we will
supplement with produce from other local farms. Some weeks will include value added
items, such as Jungle Jam, Zucchini Bread, or Fresh Basil Pesto.

Do not consume chamomile if you have a ragweed allergy.
Chamomile tea can cause an allergic reaction in people allergic to ragweed.
How to Store Chamomile
Store dried chamomile like any herb, in an airtight container out of direct sunlight. With fresh, you can put the ends in a cup of water or store them wrapped in a paper towel, in a plastic bag in the fridge.
Want to dry your chamomile? Using the microwave makes it easy!
- Lay a few flowers on a piece of paper towel.
- Cover it with another piece of paper towel. The paper towels will help absorb moisture from the flowers.
- Make sure to not overlap any of the flowers, for even drying.
- Heat the flowers in the microwave with 30-second intervals on the lowest heat setting.
- Check the flowers every 30 seconds to see if they’ve dried. The whole drying time may only take about 2-3 minutes, depending on the size of the flowers.
Chamomile can also be hung to dry in a location out of sunlight with moving air.
