News from the Farm: Week 15

Your share this week might include:

  • carrots
  • beets (Sunday) Thursday group will get them next week
  • bok choi
  • arugula
  • New Zealand spinach which you can use like spinach (better for cooked recipes). Here’s a link to some more info about it. http://chocolateandzucchini.com/archives/2010/06/pasta_with_tetragon_new_zealand_spinach.php
  • tomatoes
  • salad mix
  • shallots
  • braising greens
  • mint (dry this for winter tea and such by putting it in a paper bag for a couple of weeks – when dry, crush into a jar)
  • apples or pears
  • Next week – sweet potatoes, fingerling potatoes, leeks, lots of other stuff

Potato harvesters needed!!

Potatoes and sweet potatoes will be harvested on Wed Sept 28th, Sat. Oct 1st and Wed. Oct 5th starting at ten on each day. This is sort of hard work, but fun and rewarding. Kids welcome. Let Amy amywojenski@yahoo.com know if you’d like to come to help.

Pick-up time for Sunday, Oct 2nd

We’re shortening the time that the shed will be staffed this Sunday so everyone (including me!) can go to the farm celebration next door. Please come between 3 and 4 if you want someone to greet you in the shed. At 4 pm we will put everyone’s shares in bags for pick-up

Reminder about work hours

If you have completed your member hours by Sept 30, you will be eligible to participated in a bonus 17th week of produce. I anticipate that this share will be distributed during the week of Oct 17th or Oct 24th. Stay tuned for details.

Thanks and hope to see you at the farm celebration on the 2nd,

Brenda
