Week #19 – 2014 CSA Season

Week #19What’s in the Box: Yellow potatoes, red storage onions, yellow storage onions, shallots, green pepper, eggplant, daikon radish, tempest garlic, mixed braising greens, easter egg radishes, and red russian kale.

What’s going on at the farm:  Fall has for sure set in here and we are getting ready for winter on the farm.  Your shares this week will be packed with some hearty fall veggies to enjoy and we are loading folks up on all the storage type items we have in abundance including storage onions, potatoes, shallots, and garlic.   Since this is the last week for some folks we want to leave you with a little stockpile of storage onions which you can enjoy cooking with for a while so there will be plenty of those.  There are still some fresh crisp greens and roots to enjoy too and more on the way for the last two weeks.  including spinach, lettuce mix, beauty heart radishes, and more turnips.   It looks like our acorn squash may make it but unfortunately not this week.  Winter squash was really our only difficulty this year so I guess we can’t complain.  It has been a very good season all around.  We have reached week 19 which is the last week for Bi-Weekly members in their 10 week season.  Thanks to everyone who joined us for a 1/2 season this year.  Hopefully you found your experience to be tasty and found value in your share with us and we will see you for another season of fresh organic veggies in 2015!  While we are talking about wrapping up the season I will remind you that full season basic and standard members still have two weeks remaining after this week as we head towards the last and final week which is week 21.  For Tuesday folks the last delivery is Oct. 21st and for Thursday folks it is Oct. 23rd.   Our first frost and snow flurry both occurred this week so I think its safe to say its time to wrap things up for winter so we will continue doing just that.  We will be shelling garlic for planting over the next week and be ready to plant over a hundred pounds of some very large garlic thanks to a great garlic season here.  Next seasons garlic is all ready looking very promising indeed.  One more solid month of work here before we can cozy in and let the achy bones rest for a month or two while planning for and dreaming of another season to come.  Thanks again to all our bi-weekly members, we will be in touch regarding sign up opening for next season, until then enjoy the produce folks!
