Notes from the Farm
We have just three weeks remaining in our 2017 CSA. After spending lots of time in nurturing and harvesting our tomatoes throughout the season, we’ll pick their final green fruit this week, as our harvest shifts towards more greens and roots that are so well suited for the fall. This week we harvest a beautiful mix of greens which can be eaten raw in salad or braised in a number of dishes along with lettuce and bok choi. Peppers and eggplant are slowing down but should still give us something fruit, and we’ll enjoy more french breakfast radishes, winter squash, potatoes, onions and garlic.
Thanks to everyone who has filled out the survey already! We love getting your feedback and will send out another survey reminder later this week. Next week we will send out registration forms for our 2018 CSA.
