CSA Week 11

Sorry, no full newsletter this week!  Bill injured his back while preparing for Irene, and two of our apprentices left for the season on Friday night (after putting their full effort into a final day in crisis mode).  So the apprentices and I have been scrambling with the help of family and friends to get things tightened up for the storm.  We’re not sure yet how the vegetables for this week’s share (that are still in the fields) will be affected by Irene.  At best, the crops will probably look a little more beat up than usual.  At worst, well… hopefully there won’t be a worst.  As for now, I’m hoping that delivery dates and times will be unaffected.  Stay posted!
In other news, we had an amazing onion and shallot harvest on Wednesday.  Thousands of onions are curing in the greenhouse (hopefully they’ll still be nice and dry come Monday!) and shallots fill the racks that previously held garlic.  Below is a picture of Cecilia, proudly harvesting an onion the size of her head!
Stay safe and dry, and keep your fingers crossed for the greenhouses!
Week 11 (of 18) veggies:  Shallots, Onion, Turnip Greens, Big Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Beets, Yellow Peppers, Zucchini and/or Zephyr Squash, Basil

A proud onion harvester!
