Fresh flowers are one of the highlights of CSA membership. Who doesn't love a bright bouquet on the kitchen table?

The flower beds will bloom into the fall if members pick carefully. Moderate bouquets with short stems (12" or less) ensure an abundant supply for everyone.

PICKING TIPS

• cut in the morning, before it gets hot

• always use pruners or sharp scissors

• for branching varieties (zinnias, sunflowers, strawflowers,

   etc), cut just above branch so new buds can bloom

• remove leaves from lower portion of stems

• place stems in water immediately
• change vase water daily

CAROLINE'S FAVORITE

Display bouquets in colored, pint-sized ball jars—the perfect size for short stems.
