Week 18

Week 18

This week we continue harvesting fall storage crops for winter distributions. One noteworthy crop this season has been rutabaga. Grown in a field that we fallowed and cover cropped last season, the fertility there was good and weed pressure low. As a result, we seem to be bursting at the seams with rutabaga! There were some particularly large specimen, which inspired fun with the crew.

Want to continue eating, fresh delicious veggies this fall? Sign up for our winter share! 

A typical share features a mix of storage crops like winter squash, potatoes, cabbage, carrots, beets, onions, garlic, and fresh vegetables like head lettuce, kale, spinach, and arugula. The pickups happen every other week in November and December and feature quite a bit more volume than our summer share. Pickups are on Fridays 1-6pm inside our CSA barn on these dates: November 8, November 22, December 6, and December 20. Cost is $185. Please register and pay THROUGH THIS LINK.
