Renewals, Dinner, Crops, Apples, Potpies, Breads!
CSA Wk 18; Pickup Wed 10/12, 1-6 OR Sat 10/15 9-2
CSA friends, with frost flirting with us this week, our season is nearing the end; next week will be our last CSA pickup, Week 19. As farmers, we count our blessings for the successes, support of our customers, our staff, and families and friends. Thank you! A hot and dry one this year, a season for the record books; we were happy the tomatoes, melons, peppers and eggplant did not seem to mind! While we do plan for a 20 week season, Mother Nature has the final word. We praise her for the winter squash bounty, potatoes and garlic (we hope your pantry is stocked!). We are thankful the excessive heat and drought conditions spared our carrots, beets and greens. Some fall favorites though inevitably have been set back – broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, fennel, leeks. On the upside, we are planning a holiday share; along with these crops, Brussels sprouts, and what we can root cellar, it looks promising. See more on next season and Farm Dinner - we hope you will join us!
