Extended Fall Session Week 1

Posted 10/27/2014 6:56am by Gregg Keckler.

Hello, Everyone, Welcome to our Extended Fall session.

 

For any new folks - This is how it works.  We will bring your CSA share in boxes to the Stands and you can check off your name from the list.

PLEASE remember to bring back all the boxes, cartons, rubber bands, etc each week.  We need to reuse these items. 

This week's shares will include:

apple cider

Sun Crisp apples

 eggplant

Broccoli

Field Trip Pumpkins

Hot peppers

 

Personal shares:

Apple cider

Sun Crisp apples

Eggplant

Broccoli

Field Trip Pumpkin

 

The apple cider can be frozen.  Be sure to pour off about a third of the carton so that it does not explode in the freezer!  We have heard some amazing stories of blow outs, explosions and horrible mess!  The cider is delicious!  We love the taste the subtle difference in the taste very week depending on the blend of apples that we use.

Sun Crisp apples are sweet and crisp.  These are great for eating or for baking - they hold their shape very well.

Enjoy the eggplant and hot peppers.  We are expecting a heavy frost this week which will be the end of all summer vegetables.

We have included a Field Trip pumpkin with the share this week.  These are nice size with long stems.  They are decorative and when you are tired of looking at them, they also make a nice pie pumpkin as well.

We are having the BEST broccoli ever this year!  I am not sure why the broccoli is so good, but everyone has been raving about it this fall.  Enjoy!

We do have all the items available on the online store.  This is how the store works - you can order items from the store and pay for them immediate or you can wait the pay at the stands.  The items will be included in your share.  If you order any baked goods and it is too late for us to get them made before the delivery, we include them next week.

We hope you will enjoy this new session.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone this week.  Let me know if you have any questions. 

I will be sending out the APPLE SPECIAL email in a bit.
