In your share this week:
- Carrots - they are starting to get big and a little ugly, but the taste is getting sweeter with each frost.
- French Fillet Beans - good enough to eat raw. They don't have to be cooked long.
- Peppers - Bell and Hungarian Hot Wax
- Spinach - the small fall crop Shain planted in greenhouse #2 is doing much better than the several rows he planted back in the spring (which bolted almost immediately). I'm pretty sure there will be a few more harvests of spinach before the season is over.
- Red Norland Potatoes
- Garlic - the very last of what we have. I contemplated not distibuting this garlic because of it's poor condition, but many CSA members expressed their desire for as much garlic as possible, despite it's appearance. It's "ugly" but it tastes good.
- Squash/Zucchini - one baby fruit for Afton this week. The plants haven't died 100% yet.
Yeah for this warmer weather! Yeah for how it's helping some of our crops grow! And I certainly won't complain about the favorable condtions we have been harvesting in each day!
While other CSAs are wrapping up their season this week or next, we fully anticipate our CSA season lasting through the end of October. You will be receiving food for another month! There is still much food to harvest and some crops that are just now getting ready to dig up. (Parsnips anyone?)
Thank you all for your support.
Have a great week and ENJOY your veggies!
