We brought in an amazing winter squash harvest this week. Three extremely full pickup loads of Acorn, Delicata, Butternut Squash, and Pumpkins and decorative gourds were spread on the floor of the hoophouse to cure. Acorns are the first to ripen, followed by Delicata and Butternut (the longer you can wait to eat them before they rot, the
sweeter they will be). We made our first Pumpkin pie on Wednesday night, for Emma’s farewell dinner. We already miss Emma’s good cheer and we know she’s on her way to doing unique and amazing things.
Fall CSA shares are still available ($65) as are cheese shares ($48) and mushroom shares ($40). If you’ve signed up and have not sent a check, please do so in the next week or contact me for other arrangements. Thank you!
This year’s CSA survey is again online. We would love for you to fill it out. We really take your comments and opinions into account when planning in the winter for the following season. You can find it at http://tinyurl.com/2010csasurvey.
Remember that the annual CSA potluck-cider-pressing-garlic-planting party is scheduled for Saturday, October 16th, from noon on.
Have a great week!
