Winter Share sign up

Now is the time to sign up for a Winter share in the CSA.  The pick-up starts early December every other Friday afternoon from 2-6 at the farm.  Large Winter shares are $350 and Small shares are $200.  The crops we have grown for the Winter shares include: carrots, beets, leeks, onions, garlic, winter squash, sweet potatoes, winter radish, cabbage, chinese cabbage, Kohlrabi, Radicchio, Greenhouse lettuce, kale and spinach.  I also buy in organic potatoes from a local grower to supply the Winter shares.  We go until we run out of produce, which has typically been until the end of March.  Space is limited, so please sign up now.

Onion harvest this week!

At this point, in looking at the weather forcast for this week, we are planning to harvest all our onions on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday.  This is another job where many hands make for light work.  It involves picking the onions from the field and putting them into bins as well as stacking them on drying tables in the barn.  This is another great opportunity for CSA members wanting to get a discount on your share to come for half a day and help out.  Please contact me if you want to come.

Zucchini pesto!

Always on the look out for new things to do with all those zucchini, we saw a zucchini pesto recipe… and it was really good!  Just substitute cooked zucchini instead of basil.  We steamed it first, but next I will try roasting it, maybe with a bit of roasted red pepper!
