Final Week of the 2010 Fall CSA

We’ve come to the end of a pretty wonderful season.  Between the great weather, great apprentices, and an awesome CSA membership, we’re ending the season in solid financial and psychological shape!  We never know, in April, how the season will treat us.  So thank you for being a part of this great one.  We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.

While this is the last week of the CSA, we’ll still be selling salad greens to Rising Tide and the Good Tern up to Thanksgiving if the weather holds out.  Onions, garlic, carrots, and winter squash will be available at the farm for a while yet, so let us know if you need to re-stock.

Reba with the young women from Chewonki who helped us start the coming carrot harvest (they’re holding bags of their pay: turnips, beets, and carrots).

Two requests from your fellow CSA members.  First: a wonderful dog needs to go to a new home that does not have babies or toddlers.  Henry is great with elementary age kids and up, but is very unhappy about the new arrival in his home.  Let me know if you’d like to learn more about him.  Second: we heard through the grapevine of a woman in need of a peaceful, inexpensive place to stay and get her bearings after the end of a marriage.  If you know of a housesitting job or a room for rent, let us know and we’ll get the word to her.

We hope that you were able to stash enough potatoes away in the past months to eat HCF taters at your Thanksgiving table.  Bill, I and the kids are looking forward to holidays full of family time and family trips.  Before we know it, though, we’ll be planning next year’s plantings, interviewing potential apprentices, and getting in touch with you!  Spring is just around the corner!

Be well, eat well, and we feel so lucky to have had each and every one of you be a part of the farm.  Thank you.

Reba, Bill, Eli & Cecilia
