Week #19 – 2013 CSA Season

What’s in the Box: Red potatoes, acorn winter squash,  red storage onions, green bell peppers, serrano chile pepper,  hot wax pepper, sweet banana pepper, parsley, red russian kale.

What’s going on at the farm:  We have reached week 19 which is the last week for Bi-Weekly members in their 10 week delivery period.  Thanks to everyone who joined us for a 1/2 season this year.  Hopefully you got enjoyment and value out of your share with us and will stick with us for another season of fresh organic veggies in 2014!  Full season members you still have two weeks remaining after this week as we head towards the last and final week which is week 21.  For Tuesday folks this is Oct. 15th and for Thursday folks it is Oct. 17th.

Cherry tomatoes are done producing and we cut down trellising twine in the fields and picked some of the last peppers and eggplant of the year this week.  We also pulled out more mulch and drip lines from the fields and of course mowing and tilling lots of weeds.  There is still lot’s more to do as we prepare for frost and the coming winter.  We are ordering our potting soil for next spring all ready and ordering in garlic seed as well for planting later this month.  Salad turnips were not quite ready for this week but will be ready next week.  more salad greens on the way next week as well.  The weather lately can’t seem to decide if it’s summer or fall yet but looks like our last real warm front this week and some possible frost coming afterwards this weekend.  Thanks and enjoy!
