Dear Folks,

Thanks so much for being part of our CSA this year.  We have enjoyed producing your fruits and vegetables this year.  Keep us in mind for next year's CSA.  We should have the new season up and ready by January 1.

This week;s  shares will include:

Cameo apples

Jam

Sweet potatoes

Baby Kale

Winter squash

broccoli

 

Enjoy the fall produce.  Remember the winter squash will keep for several weeks in a cool dry spot.  The jam will keep on the shelf for up to six months.  after you open it, just refrigerate it.  If you could keep the jars and return them next year that would be great or return them to any of our other markets this year.

This is the last week of markets for DOT, Columbia, and Westminster.

Gregg will still be going to NGS every Tuesday until December 22 and Oliver will be going to St Luke's every Saturday until December 19 ( no market on November 28)

 

All shares will be delivered in bags on Wednesday.

 

Then Gregg will not need to make another pick up.

 

See everyone this week.

Dear Folks,

 This week's shares will include:

Gold Rush apples

Brussels sprouts

Swiss chard

apple cider

butternut squash

winter squash

 

We love Brussels sprouts sautéed in a pan with garlic and olive oil.  The flavor is amazing.  yesterday I did some with chicken and Swiss chard.  It was a great hit!  The Gold rush apples are one of the last to be picked for the year.  So they are good keeping apples.  Also all the winter squash and butternut squash will keep for several weeks.  So do not feel that you must rush to eat them. 

 

Thanksgiving will be just around the corner.  If you are looking for a Thanksgiving turkey, please; consider us.  The price is $3.99/lb.  You can order it on the online store or at any of the markets. We do not have any turkeys under 14 pounds left.  So consider a big one for left overs and soup.

 

Check out he online store for any additional items that you can add to your CSA share.  you will be supporting a local farm and eating good food.

 

See everyone this week!
