Harvest Celebration and Friends of Boulder Knoll Annual Meeting + News from the Farm

When: Friday, Oct 5th, 6 pm until 9 pm (or whenever)

What: Bring a dish to share (to feed about 8 people) and a good appetite. Main dishes, side dishes, salads, desserts are welcome. ( fyi: We don’t have any way to heat them up.) Beer and wine too!

We’re also hosting a stuff give-away. If you have a decent item (or 2 or 3!) that you’d like to re-home please bring it to the celebration. Anyone is welcome to bring items or adopt items. No money, no hassle, just a way of finding a good home for something that you don’t need anymore. You just need to take your item back if no one claims it. Put your name on the item somewhere so interested people can talk to you. If you have perennial plant divisions to give away, please bring those too.

Our short and sweet annual meeting includes a short report about the CSA and the education work at the farm, and then the members confirm the selection of new Board members and officers.

Where: Bob Giddings’ barn at the top of the hill overlooking the farm. Park at the farm or in Bob’s yard. Look for the signs.

Who: Anyone in any way associated with the farm – volunteers, friends, family, kids!

Help needed at the Farm

We need folks to come tomorrow (Friday) between 11 am and 2 pm to dig potatoes and sweet potatoes and harvest some winter squash. Please let Annmarie Golioto amgolioto@cox.net know if you’d like to come.

If you can’t bend and dig, there are other things to do! We need help setting up and decorating (light strings, tables, etc) for the potluck. This will be done in the afternoon. Please let Annmarie know if you can help with that.

We also need 4 adult harvesters and 2 preppers on Saturday mornings Oct 13th and 20th. I will be staffing the share-out to talk to members on those dates.

We’ll be planting garlic in early November – stay tuned. Clearing weeds out of beds would be very welcome in the next few weeks – mowing too!

I anticipate that Group B might get the following produce on Saturday 10/6/12:

  • Tatsoi/lettuce/arugula
  • braising greens (kale, Asian greens, chard)
  • bok choi
  • potatoes
  • cider?
  • eggplant/peppers/tomatillos
  • dill (maybe choice with a bunch of other stuff)
  • radishes or daikon (the best – big, mild, crunchy!)
  • leeks
  • winter squash
  • beans (Don’t be fooled – these are big tender pole beans – very tasty.)

Please let me know asap if you can’t pick up your share this weekend or need to be late. Text to my cell or email is great.

Hope to see you at the potluck on Friday evening!
