Week 5: Fall CSA-November 17, 2014

Hello all and welcome to Week 5 of the Fall CSA season.  There are 6 weeks in this season.  The final delivery will be the same time and place next Wednesday, November 26.  we are harvesting the following crops this week:

  • Romaine Lettuce*
  • Parsley*
  • Cilantro*
  • Red Head Lettuce*
  • Bok Choi*
  • Swiss Chard
  • Vitamin Green
  • Arugula*
  • Broccoli*
  • Winter squash*

We have potatoes and winter squash in the walk in cooler.  Both are available for sale in case quantities at wholesale pricing if anyone would like any.  Potatoes are white or russets and are $1.00/lb. Winter squash are a 40# cs @ $24.00/cs.  We have acorn and some delicata available.  If any of you would like to come harvest greens for your family, just give a call and come over whenever.  We have beautiful kale, collards, swiss chard, vitamin green, romaine and arugula.  The fall season has been bountiful, with CSA boxes being stuffed to their capacity.  Our fields are still full, so please, come help yourselves.

So far so good with the winter lettuce blankets.  We've had some chilly weather and the lettuce is holding it's own.  The brown tips on the romaine are where the lettuce is taller and touching the blankets when frost is on the blankets.  It doesn't effect the taste, but I do trim off the brown when making salad for company.
