CSA Week 6

Posted 8/29/2011 9:52am by Gregg Keckler.
Dear Folks,

     September 2 is the deadline to sign up for the fall session.  If you have not signed up, please let us know by THIS  FRIDAY September 2 if you would like to continue into the fall session.  We will be having some great winter squash.  We picked some acorn squash this week.  Oliver wants to pick the Delicati soon.  We are picking lots of apples.  We will start off the last session with Honey Crisp apples!  Oliver and our two field workers picked them before the hurricane hit.  Thankfully, otherwise they would have dropped.  Gregg is hoping to do a batch of cider next week.  We are picking Gala and Jonathan apples this week.  We will have onions into the fall and potatoes, sweet potatoes, turnips, beets, Italian plums, concord grapes, Roma tomatoes and much more.  Stay tuned!

     This week's shares will include:  peaches, pears (Bartlet), plums acorn squash, sweet onion, mystery vegetable, kale/Swiss chard.

  Our tomatoes have slowed down with all the rain this weekend many of them are split.  We are cleaning off the plants and hoping that new tomatoes will come on before the weather gets too cold.  Enjoy the acorn squash this week.  They are great roasted!

Have a great week - Enjoy the last of the summer birds and butterflies.  We are beginning to see flocks of wild geese instead of robins.  Fall is in the air!
