What’s In Your Box? Sept. 7th

Good Morning!

Hope you all had a blessed holiday weekend:) We couldn’t have asked for better weather.

To those of you sending your kiddos back to school today…and those of you who started last week….I am thinking of you all! I pray that it’s a smooth transition into the school routine and that your kids have great experiences this year.

Welp….after doing some digging and planning ahead… much as we wanted to make it through September…I believe our final pick up will be in 2 weeks, September 21. The heat of this summer has really progressed things quickly and hasn’t really allowed the cooler weather crops to thrive as I had hoped. We are starting to feel the sting of the flooding earlier in the season as a lot of our second crop was lost, but all in all…we have been blessed with a pretty decent summer.

What can you plan on in your FALL box this week? ?





summer squash (for sure this week)

ALSO….some EXCITING news for next week:) We are teaming up with Grandview Orchard in Jamestown and will be offering apples with your shares for the next 2 weeks.  I will be putting out an order form with the egg orders later this week  for you to choose from….yay for FALL!

Here are some fun recipe ideas to think about this week:)

Slow Cooker Potato Leek Soup

Roasted Acorn Squash with Garlic and Rosemary

Sausage and Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash

Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup

See you all Wednesday 3:30-6!!


What’s In your Box? August 31

Hello there! I am so sorry it’s been a bit….this totally slipped my mind last week. I hope you all enjoyed your “surprise boxes” last Wednesday:)

Looking ahead for the week…here’s what you can expect in your share:


Summer Squash

Butternut, Buttercup or Spaghetti Squash




Romaine Lettuce

Swiss Chard

Possibly Leeks and/or Pie Pumpkins


As expected….after a few weeks of rather heavy boxes, they will begin to lighten up as the season comes to an end. Given that they are full of squash they are actually quite heavy, but the amounts will be less. The goal for last pick up date is September 28th….October 5th if we are lucky since we do have some later crops planted that aren’t quite ready yet due to the replant after our flooding situation.

If you are interested in canning tomatoes…we do have some available in half bushels…just let me know before Wednesday if you’d like some. They are $7 per half.

I realize that the fall brings a whole new level of busy for all of us. If you have a hard time making it to a pick up, please let me know. I am also wondering your thoughts on switching the pick up time to 3:30-6:00 since most shares are picked up around that time anyway. Please let me know your thoughts ! Thanks so much…hope you all have a great day:)

Also…I want to hear what you did with your rutabagas last week?

What´s In Your Box? August 3rd

Happy last day of July ! Is it really happy? I´m not so sure about that.

We spent some time in the garden tonight looking at what we will have ready for the week and things are starting to pop! Greens are dying back due to the mid summer heat…but I am working on a fall crop as we speak. The crazy heat the past couple of weeks has slowed tomatoes down, but sped our more fall-ish items up…..such as squash! You will all have at least 1 spaghetti squash in your box this week…and probably the following week or 2 while we wait for buttercup and butternut to catch up.
