Thursday CSA Pick Up and The Store–UPDATE ON THE FARM–October 3rd, 2019


We have some surprises Thursday!  Besides being one of the BIG Pick Up’s with Group D Weekly’s (D12), Leap-Frog’s (Group D2), and Monthly’s that bought the October Extension (Group DM1+), this is the last push for the 2019 season, the last month, and the garden is groaning…as is The Farmer, his Wife, and the Workers! (The don’t look like it in the picture…I know!)

If you bought a regular 13 week CSA Share you have 2 more veggie shares…If you bought an Extension you have 4 more veggie shares.  Check Thursday to see when your last Pick Up is!  If you’d like to add on another Share (or two), check with The Farmer’s Wife…cost is $25 per veggie week! 

This has been a grueling week (that matches the ‘groaning’ garden)…The crew here at Lloyd Craft Farms has worked SOLID for the past 10 days, trying to beat the weather!  We have not done it yet BUT we are getting closer:  We have gleaned what we can from the peppers and tomatoes (we let the eggplant go), picked a good stock of corn to sell  (300 ears left yet at $24 for 3 dozen…a great addition to your freezer!), harvested the last of the melons for the Shares this week (and sale in The Store), harvested the celery ahead (soup stock weather!), and stock piled the pumpkins.

Which brings me to the reason for this post (other than filling you in on the news on The Farm)–We have BROCCOLI for sale at The Store this week, as well as some of the beautiful Purple Cauliflower.  Both are treasure finds from The Garden! These, in addition to the other stuff we usually stock:

Bagged Broccolini (Galion X), large Red or Orange bell peppers (and a few Green…as well as 1# bags of Snack Peppers), HOT peppers (including the last of the Habanero’s and Poblano’s), Sierra Blanca fresh onions and fresh green onions, last of the cucumbers and slicing tomatoes, lettuces from Greybull Valley Produce, Organic Girl Spinach,  last of the Utah peaches (canned the pears last night) and other organic fruits (Gala and Ginger Gold apples), yams and our freshly dug red potatoes (maybe some 5# bags of Russets)Come check it out and stock up!   Help us get this fresh, healthy food from our Farm to your Fridge!

Remember:  Any CSA member can shop ANY Thursday from 4:00-6:00 p.m.  AND don’t forget about our October 24th Soup Dinner at The Farm from 5:00-7:00!  Jans and Christa (Nam Sweet and Savory–Greybull) will work their magic AGAIN with some amazing end of the season soups…all made with veggies from The Garden–What an appropriate parting gift for the 2019 Garden Season!  Watch for more information on cost and how to reserve a spot–

    Hi Terri, Bravo to you all! it’s been awesome and I’ve heard nothing but great appreciation for your shares coming into Fremont County. I am guessing you and crew are more than ready to end that long drive! Thanks for making it happen for us here! We’ll be sad to see it end for the season, but hopefully it will return next summer. Stef
