Farm Update October 1, 2016

The end of the monsoon delivered nearly an inch of rain at the farm – 0.85″ in the last week. The total rainfall at the farm since late June is 8.01″ – a pretty good rainy season this year.

Lately we have planted two types of beets, onions, carrots, lettuce mix, salad mix and radishes. Today and tomorrow we will get in the parsnips, rutabagas, kales and various greens.

We have started removing the shadecloth from the growing beds in preparation for the fall and winter growing season.

If you have signed up for the fall/winter CSA season, your email address will be added to the next CSA newsletter email distribution list and you will start receiving emails in a few weeks.

As mentioned in earlier newsletters, if you would like to sign up for our next CSA season, we will continue taking payments/reservations for our 16-week fall/winter CSA share program, deliveries for which will begin the middle of November and run through the middle of March 2017. Shares will cost $250 for 16 weekly deliveries. We will have the forms at the markets this weekend and they are also available on our website, here.

    I’m interested in your baskets. I didn’t see where to sign up on your website.

      Hi Rhonda, Thank you for interest in becoming a CSA member.

      There are two places on the site with links to a printable sign up form. One is in the menu at the very top, above our logo banner, titled ‘CSA’ – that page contains some good information about CSA membership with a link to the form at the bottom.

      Also, there is a section on the right-hand side of all pages, titled ‘CSA’ – the link within that section takes you to the form as well.

      Thanks again, and we look forward to hearing from you.
