In your share this week:
- Zucchini and/or Squash variety
- Italian Flat Leaf Parsley
- 1 lb. bag of "ugly" German Garlic
- Snow Peas for Etna
Garlic continued... Last week Shain and I decided to start clean next year by purchasing and planting new garlic seed to plant this fall. It cost us a small fortune to buy 100 lbs. of German garlic from a certified grower in New York (his price was actually the most affordable we could find) but we felt it was the best choice for us. That means all the garlic we salvaged from this year's harvest will be distributed to the CSA. I will also be sorting out some of it to sell in an attempt to offset the purchase we just made. We cleaned up the German garlic a few days ago and there was just enough to give all the CSA members a pound each. I told you it didn't look good (I call it "ugly") but the taste is still there. We'll start working on the Spanish Roja next. There's quite a bit more of it and it doesn't look as bad. I'm hopeful it will give better yields.
Temperatures have been below freezing on several occassions for us. We are doing everything we can with heaters and row covers to get sensitive crops through these nights. Things look good so far.
Have a great week and ENJOY your veggies.
