Final week of the season. And what a week! The box was so full we had to add a bag on top to hold all the produce! What was included this week? Well, we had beets, carrots, broccoli, potatoes, bell peppers, three types of winter squash, lots of garlic, leeks, shallots, bok choi, daikon radishes, kohlrabi, radishes, brussels sprouts and kale. That is one nice thing about being a member of a pure CSA. You get all the produce we grow!
This is it. The last week of the 2012 season. I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did.
Equally important is the deadline for the Early Bird VeggieShares for next season. Sign-up by the end of the month and get next year’s veggies at this year’s prices. See the order from or contact me for more details. And spread the word to friends and neighbors!
This is a tough week to be a newsletter writer. There isn’t much to say! The season is almost over.
Nearing the end of the season but the produce keeps coming on strong! This week we are adding leeks to the mix. Plus there are 3 # of potatoes in the box. Hmm, maybe potato leek soup on this cold fall day? Plus there are 1.5 # of carrots, six peppers, a bunch of radishes, salad mix, three winter squash (spaghetti, acorn and carnival), garlic, brussels sprouts, cabbage, kohhlrabi and broccoli.
Here is this week’s FamilyShare. It is a great example of the benefit of joining a pure CSA farm. This week the broccoli is coming on strong. So what does a pure CSA farm do? We give it out to our members! Six gorgeous, large heads of broccoli this week! Farms with other sales outlets would give their members a few heads and sell the rest through their farm stand, farmers’ market booth or wholesale it to a co-op. Not our idea of a CSA.
We are now taking orders for the 2012 season. By signing up before October 31, 2011 you can lock in this year’s price for next season’s shares. All it takes is an order form and a $100 deposit.
In addition we are taking orders for FruitShare for the remainder of this year. We will have four boxes of fruit – 1 in late October, 1 in November and 2 in December. Use the same order form to add Fruit!
Don’t keep us a secret! Please spread the

Another tasty box of veggies!
