Hello again farm friends,
After deliveries this week, we will only have two more CSA deliveries this season. This season has flown by quicker than most it seems. I love this time of year with all the changes taking place around us. The trees on the hills that surround our farm are beginning to change color, and the cool weather of the past week has been a real pleasure. Though we still have more summer heat hanging on, we’ve had a preview of autumn. .
Every year on our farms is different – and this year has been a hot and hard summer to raise food crops. We’ve faced heartache as well – a couple of our farm families suffered tragic family losses this summer. We lost one of our Amish farmers this summer due to a tragic farm accident, and one of our farmers lost his son suddenly to a brief but devastating illness. We hope the good times and memories of them, will bring comfort to both families now.
This farm could not exist if not for the incredible people who work here and on our partner farms. They help to make our farm’s CSA program possible. As one of our CSA members, you give purpose to each one of our farms and you support our farm with your purchase of a share of our harvests. We thank you so much.
”What’s in our share this week”? Green beans, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, summer squash, zucchini, red Marconi sweet peppers, acorn squash and yippee- Delicata squash. Delicious cooked in both sweet and savory recipes. Oh, and by the way, you can eat the skin on the Delicata squash if you want. Google “Delicata squash recipes” for a multitude of delightful recipes for this equally delightful squash!
The Combo shares get fruit this week: Apples, and the variety is Mutsu Crispin.
Have a great week!
