Week 19 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA 2013

Dobry Den!

We hope you have been enjoying your weekly CSA bags this year! Just a reminder that on week from today will be the last CSA bag of the year! Our last day will be:

Wednesday, October 16

As usual, the farm is hopping.  The deadline we set for the greenhouse to be up has come and gone.  Hopefully, we will share a picture of the greenhouse all closed up and finished in the last newsletter, but here’s what she looks like now:

We are continuing deliveries to Super Savers in Lincoln as well as deliveries to dining halls at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.  This means we are harvesting large quantities of produce.  In the picture below, potatoes are being sent through the wash line and Ryan is sorting them.  The round table at the end spins in circles so you can sort your produce as you package it – It always reminds me a little bit of the I Love Lucy episode where she is sorting chocolates!

??????????

The weather has been very cooperative this year, so we have several crops still growing. Tomatoes look great, peppers are pretty and the fall crops are coming on too!  Be sure to enjoy all the fresh produce as the growing season comes to an end.  And as always, if you need anything for canning, pickling, freezing, our sauerkraut-ing, be sure to let us know!
