You’ve seen plenty of pictures of food throughout the season, so I opted to use a photo to just remind us all of the beauty that surrounds us this autumn season.
It has been an adventurous season for me. And considering that you, the 2016 CSA members have joined me in this journey I thank you for standing by my side. This was the first year I had to battle ground hogs, in both the garden and the hoop house, as well as deer getting into the hoop house. I can’t blame the animals for wanting to munch on the goodies I’ve been growing, but I can sure be mad at them for the destruction they have caused.
Thankfully, the critters didn’t get everything, which is why you sill find these items in your box this final week:
All boxes will contain:
Eggplant – I hope you have fallen in love with this very versatile, highly popular [in Europe] veggie.
Potatoes – a random combination of white, red, yellow or blue spuds.
Onions – a few medium sized yellow or white onions.
Garlic – a nice sized head.
Vine-ripened and/or green heirloom tomatoes – They’re still growing, ripening, and ready to eat, whether they are green or ripe.
Kale and/or Swiss chard – cheers to a bunch of healthy greens.
Herbs: either mint, parsley, basil, sage, or thyme
Other items that may randomly appear in your box:
Artichokes – may be big or small.
Beets and/or beet greens – the last of the beet patch that survived the deer attack.
Broccoli – to my surprise, the ground hogs have left it alone and some of the florets have sprouted.
I thank you all for your support of our farm. It has been my pleasure to grow fresh, certified organic fruits and veggies for you this year.
God speed to you all, and I wish you much health and happiness.
