What’s New?! 

As this season draws to a close I have so much to reflect on. Overall it was a year of growth and beauty. Our staff was the tops by far. I have never worked with such an amazing group of people in my life! We tried new crops on a larger scale and we were mostly successful. I am pleased with the selection we were able to offer for the CSA and market. The hot dry summer was an extreme challenge for lettuce of any shape or size and I couldn’t seem to catch up. Even now I feel like I am still trying to keep up. It seems like all of our successes of last year were a failure this year and all of our busts last year were successes last year. As farmers we understand this but we always hope our members will understand this as well. We are grateful for your support and feedback and we are very excited moving into the fall and winter. Blessings to you and your family.

Coming soon: Kohlrabi

Featured Vegetable:

Each week we will feature an item in the recipe section of this email to introduce you to what we are growing and what we think is the best thing on the “menu” for the week.

Green Tomatoes:

Frost is quickly approaching and our tomato plants are still loaded with fruit. Now is the time to eat green tomatoes. And some of them may surprise you and ripen. Green tomatoes are an excellent addition to most dishes. Sweet and sour is nothing without the sour. Try using green tomatoes for an acid flavor in your dishes.
