Well, last week I was talking about rain and this week we are talking about mud! We ended up with about 4 inches one day and 2 ½ a couple of days later. Vegetables perked up, people perked up, and everything got a little messier. The biggest downside? Weeds perked up too.
We have been working on cleaning out the high tunnels this week. Several crops in the high tunnels have reached their end and its time for something new. Everything either got pulled or shredded. We prep the ground and begin planting again. It’s crazy to think that we’ve already been planting for fall since late May!
Ready for Planting
The fall cauliflower is looking amazing! Pumpkins and squash are coming along and will be here before you know it. Sweet potatoes are starting to size up. These are some of my favorite crops but they require a lot of delayed gratification! As much as I love fall – don’t worry, we haven’t started making pumpkin pies… yet 🙂
Getting Pumpkins Ready for Fall
With all this fall talk, we’d like to invite you to join us for the 2017 Fall CSA. It’s a bit hard to start thinking about already, but it will be here before you know it. We are already 2/3rds of the way through this CSA and only have about a month and a half left.
This year we will be offering a Fall CSA during the months of November and December. The CSA will include four delivery dates which we tried to schedule to go along with the holidays: November 7th & 21st, and December 5th & 19th. The cost for the Fall CSA will be $25 per week (only one size). As usual, the produce you receive in the box will be somewhat dependent on successful cropping and weather, just as it is in the current CSA and will primarily include vegetables that will store well.
Last year, the CSA included: Pie Pumpkin, Broccoli, Romanesco, Sweet Potatoes, Acorn Squash, Cucumbers, Yukon Gold Potatoes, Radishes, Cauliflower, Lettuce, Spinach, Potatoes, Kohlrabi, Butternut Squash, Turnips, Beets, Peppers, Sunshine Squash, and Cabbage.
