Thursday, October 8th Deliveries and Pick Ups

Stay tuned for information on Thursday deliveries and pick-ups.

We may move to town, one block from Pioneer Square, and ask everyone to Pick Up between 4:30 and 6:00.  Still working this through–

We need time to harvest every morning if we are going to get everything out of the garden before deep fall hits.  By moving to town it makes it easier for the Thursday deliveries–closer proximity.  If we can get everything together before 3:30 on Thursday, we could do the deliveries before 4:30, but we will not know until Wednesday what kind of progress we have.

Please bear with us as we finish out the season–we appreciate your membership and support! Hope you have enjoyed the fresh vegetables this year–your support of local foods is what keeps us going!

October 8th Shares, and a preview of the 15th and 22nd

What should you expect this week?-– looking at Swiss Chard as the green, last of the broccoli if there is any more out there, eggplant before the cold takes it out, onions, last of the tomatoes, your choice of Butternut or Buttercup or Kabocha squash, some varieties of peppers, and celery.

Next week we hope to have some Brussels sprouts to add, a Hot Pepper pack, potatoes, carrots, and some form of winter squashyes, I know…you’ve had a lot of Winter Squash…BUT it is so good for you and a great exploration in fall eating.  Check out the nutritional value of winter squash!

Last week of the seasonKale, Deadon cabbage, red onions, Hubbard squash, beets or another root crop, and sweet potatoesThey are finally growing!  We had to row cover them a couple of weeks ago to increase the heat and humidity.  The Farmer checked and we hope to dig them next week and get them cured for your last share–such a treat if we can get it accomplished!
