This week's share consists of salad turnips, radish, kale tops, celeriac, onions, garlic, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and butternut winter squash. There may be some bad leaves in with the kale tops-- just tear off the bad part. The celeriac is the roundish knobby thing that smells like celery--dice it up for soups and stews.
So this is the last week of the Summer CSA. Thanks for being a part of it all; I hope you've had a valuable experience. If so, we'll see you-- and your friends-- next year.
Please spread the word! Word of mouth is our local economy's best defense against corporate control. If a new member mentions your name, you get a free case of tomatoes next September.

You are why we farm,
This weeks share consists of mixed asian braising greens, white salad turnips, onions, sweet potatoes, butternut winter squash, tomatoes, and Celery. Our celery has less water and more flavor than what you find in the grocery store. A little bit goes a long way!

This week's share consists of arugula, cilantro, beets, garlic, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, and butternut squash, kale, and Beans. The kale has some damage on parts of the leaves but most of it is still fine!
The record setting heat last weekend helped bring on our late crop of green beans. This variety is tender and delicious, and they take Forever to pick!
We are a little over halfway sold out for the Fall/Spring Share, so don't procrastinate much longer.
