Dear CSA folks,

   I cannot believe that we are at the end of the first summer session for 2019.  We have a had a fantastic year of squash, tomatoes, and peaches, among other fruits and vegetables.  We hope that you are enjoying things.

Next week - August 20, 22, 24 is the last week for the first session.  So if you were intending to sign up for the second session, now is the time to do it.  Send me an email if you are interested.

If you cannot join us for the fall - we hope that you have a great rest of the year. Remember to stop in at the farm stands during the fall months and we hope to see you in the spring.

If you are not sure if you have signed up for the fall, just sebd me an email and I will check for you.

 

Looking forward to good fall vegetables, cooler temperatures and great apple cider!
