News from the farm: Week 12

Farm distribution changes for the coming two weeks:

As some of you know, my daughter Alani is getting married next weekend and I will be away for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

We will harvest and distribute your Thursday (9/8) share on Thursday rather than changing it to Wednesday (like I had mentioned before).

We will change the Week 13 Sunday (9/11) harvest and distribution to Monday (9/12) from 4-6:30. If you can’t pick up on Monday and would like to switch to Thursday 9/15 please let me know.

Your share this week

I anticipate sharing out carrots, spaghetti squash, apples, kale/chard, tomatoes, and other treats.

Good night Irene!

We faired pretty well in the storm. Many plants came through fine. Lots of tomato, pepper, and kale plants were knocked over but will live. Some tomatoes and peppers were in water for a long time and are probably not going to make it. The squash is pretty much done because the leaves got badly shredded. Thank you to everyone who helped get the hoophouse and equipment secured. Nothing significant got damaged.

My power at home was out until last evening, so that’s why I’ve been incommunicado. Sorry for my absence.

Year-end potluck dinner and dance
Sunday, October 2, 4-7pm
Membership Dinner and Dance

A potluck Membership Dinner/Annual Meeting is being planned for Oct 2 from 4-7pm. Everyone who is connected with the farm in some way is welcome. The evening’s events will include potluck food prepared by everyone, a cheese spread from Caseus, live music with dancing, and a silent auction with items and services offered by CSA and members. Think about what items or services you might be able to donate! Tickets won’t be required but we’ll want to know who’s coming ahead of time. Pencil it in and I’ll send more info as the date gets closer!

Other fun events

Stay tuned for Julia’s email about the educational events for September and October – Amber’s delicious smoothy tasting, putting the garden to bed hands-on workshop, fall perennial plantings in Anne’s garden, to name a few.

Work needs

There won’t be any non-harvest work hours until the wedding is behind me (next week!). We really need folks to step up for harvests tomorrow and next Monday and for the rest of the Sunday and Thursday harvests this season. If you complete your work hours by the end of September (or have scheduled to work after that), you will be eligible to participate in a 17th week distribution later in October. Please keep your eye on the website work calendar for available work times. I encourage you to sign up for a harvest or distribution if you haven’t completed your hours.

See you at the farm!
