If you are not signed up for the Extended Fall session, but you get this email, forgive me.  I do not have a record anymore of who was signed up for the Extended Fall session, so I am sending the list to all who were in the CSA at NGS for 2017.
 
What's in the box
Week 4 -Extended  Fall, 2017
 
 shares
Pink Lady apples - tart
cauliflower
broccoli
garlic
Fuji apples - sweet
 
 
 
 
We have a lot of cauliflower and broccoli due to last week's freeze.  So if you get too much just freeze some for later in the winter.  We hope that you will enjoy the Pink Lady and Fuji.  Both are keeper apples, so they will hold for a while.
 
 
We hope that you have enjoyed the fall CSA.  Please check out the last email for information on next year's CSA.  There will be information on the website within the next month.  Remember that the special prices for next year are good during January and February.  We will also only be taking checks or you can pay with a credit card if you go to one of the stands during the winter.  Let us know if you have any questions.
 
 
Thanks again for your support in 2017!
