This is your last delivery of produce. It includes:
- Beets (pickled beets anyone?)
- Sweet Red Onions
The clear weather held on just long enough (well, for a day or two anyways) to harvest another share of produce for you. Today it's snowing again.
This picture shows more about the farm than I'd like to admit. Just look at all those weeds! This is one area of the farm we never got to weeding very well. It shows! Looking at all those dried weed seeds makes me cringe in anticipation for next year. Off to the right you can see several nicer mounded rows of dark soil with drip tape running along the top. This is where we planted the Polish Jenn and Spanish Roja garlic. It is nearly weed free. And in case you can't tell, those are two rows of carrots we are digging among all those weeds. It takes about 2 full cart loads of carrots to give each CSA share a big bag of carrots.
Last Friday we took advantage of the dry weather and dug up as much food as possible. This is our last big load of red onions. They are still holding on despite the freezing temperatures. (The yellow onions did not fare as well unfortunately.)
Last week I asked some end of the year questions. Here is one more:
- Would you prefer to receive a wider variety of produce in your weekly shares? Or would you rather have consistent weekly deliveries of the more common/favorite vegetables?
I have received very little feed back from CSA members as of yet. Please take a few moments to let us know how you feel about the season and the service we provide.
Although we haven't really had time to think about next year just yet, we are currently planning on keeping our 2010 CSA season very similar to this past 2009 season. (Except that we have plans to make the season even better by fine tuning the way we grow several crops.) I will be in touch with our current 2009 CSA members by email when we start selling 2010 CSA shares. Announcements will also be made on this website. CSA shares are sold on a first come-first serve basis, with current members being notified approximately 2 weeks before the general public. I will be putting together the details of the 2010 season just after the holiday season slows down. I'm thinking sign-ups will start mid January. (I know this later sign-up date will be of concern to some Jackson residents because of the sign-up procedure/deadline/price increase/etc. with the other Jackson CSA. If you feel you can't wait this long to sign-up for an EverGreen Farm CSA membership, please contact me.)
Have a great week and enjoy your veggies!
