WEEK 13- SHARE PICK UP CHANGE

This week’s Share Pick Up will be on Saturday for everyone--No Tuesday or Thursday Pick Ups at The Farm, but a Saturday Pick Up downtown at the Parking Lot next to Western Sage CPA’s.  Pick Up time will be 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  If you will be out of town for the weekend, or can’t make it down that day, your share will be stored in our cooler at The Farm for pick up Sunday, Monday or Tuesday.

This week’s share contains POTATOES, ONION, SCARLET QUEEN TURNIPS, JET ACORN SQUASH, and BRUSSELS SPROUTS.  The greens for the week will be either SPINACH, SALANOVA, or SWISS CHARD- first come, first choice!  Extra’s table–weather permitting–should have broccoli, peppers, cabbage, and some odds and ends.

Thanks for your assistance and understanding as we deal with the end of season weather, and trying to get things harvested before the first hard frost…which we know is eminent in October!  Any questions can be directed to craftterri@rtconnect.net–  THANKS– The Farmer’s Wife

UPDATE ON THE FARM- SEPTEMBER 28TH

SEPTEMBER 28th, 2014

We are entering the last quarter of the 16 week Summer Season.  The first frost of the season was a couple of weeks early this year.  Most people thought this was IT–we were DONE.  I would have thought that myself a few years ago, but we have learned there are lots of plants that are not affected by the frost…and in fact, they are enhanced in flavor and taste…Brussels sprouts and broccoli.  And we have taken steps to row cover eight beds this year to help extend their season….TO READ MORE ABOUT THE FARM IN THE LAST QUARTER OF THE CSA GO TO http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com and click on the UPDATE ON THE FARM tab.
