Tennessee & Alabama CSA

Newsletter Oct.3, 2022

CSA Friends,

We’ve reached the end of another CSA season, and it simply raced by, or at least it seemed that way to us! We really hope enjoyed your harvest share this season, and we invite you to sign  up for 2023. Our registration for 2023 will open online in mid-December. We will send an email to your email inbox to let you know once registration opens.

We would be remiss if we didn’t pass along a big “thank you” to everyone for joining us for this summer’s harvest. Without you, our farms would not have a CSA program! For your support of our growing efforts, we as well as the farms that collaborate with us to deliver your shares each week, are grateful and humbled by the confidence you place in us. We will continue to do our best for you.

Our farmers grow more than one variety of winter squash, and on this final week we are including three varieties in your shares. Delicata which is striped, Butternut which most are familiar with seeing, and Acorn which is a favorite of many. Eat your Delicata first, your Butternut last since it stores well for a few months, and eat the Acorn in between these other two! They’re all different and all delicious! There are a myriad of recipes you’ll find for all three winter squash varieties if you will “google” their name on the internet.
What’s in my share this week?  Delicata squash, Butternut squash, Acorn squash, eggplant, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes (store at room temp.) Arkansas Black apples, Summer squash.

Home delivery members: Please leave your cooler and ice block out on your delivery day this week. This week, please use a personal cooler out for us to leave your share in case the weather has a mind of its own. This week is the final delivery.

“A tip of the hat goes” goes out also to our farm Drivers Elaine and Howard, as well as to our outstanding site Coordinators and Neighborhood hosts! Each of you have been wonderful to work with this season and have done a terrific job assisting CSA members at your site(s). I sure hope I haven’t forgotten to mention anyone who deserves a “shout out”.

In closing, may the upcoming holiday seasons be filled with love, blessings and good health!

Judy, John, and your farmers from Doe Run Farms CSA
