Notes from the Farm
The final week of our 2017 CSA is here. We’ll send you off with butternut squash, potatoes, garlic, carrots and french breakfast radishes, all of which can keep well for weeks or even months. Leave the soil on the carrots and cut the greens from the radishes to extend their storage capability; dry and dark storage conditions work best for squash, potatoes and garlic, and though garlic will be comfortable at room temperature, squash and potatoes prefer cooler conditions (45-50 degrees) if you plan to store them for a couple months. In addition to these long lasting crops we have a great harvest of greens, including lettuce, arugula, kale, salad/braising mix, plus more eggplant or peppers, and either sprouting broccoli or chard.
So what will you do next week? Don’t worry, you can still get great produce from us each week! We are offering a 3-week November CSA for a limited number of subscribers (details below), and we’ll continue to be at the Farmers’ Markets until mid December on Saturday mornings, 9am-1pm at Wooster Square, and Sunday mornings from 10am-1pm at Edgewood Park. We hope to continue to see you over the next couple of months, but if we don’t, we hope to see you back with the CSA next year. Thanks for your continued support of Massaro Farm!
