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:

Zucchini

Summer Squash

Butternut, Buttercup or Spaghetti Squash

Tomatoes

Peppers

Eggplant

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?

Hi Everyone! Looking forward to another harvest pick up at the farm:) The kids and I had a blast checking out the silly gourds showing up in the garden already…thanks to the hot summer, pumpkins and gourds are already starting to ripen !?  yikes. Deacon thought this one looked like a snack so he threw it on his grandma´s porch so it scared her when she got home. All Boy!

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.
