1st week of the Extended CSA Season

October 21st, 2009

We’ve harvested some beautiful vegetables for the Extended CSA program which begins today (and continues thru to the week before Thanksgiving).
Generally CSA members can expect lots of green peppers and hot peppers, eggplant, lots of cooking greens, turnips (with tops), winter squash, garlic and perhaps a few other surprises.

In other news- we have started planting garlic for next season. Our cover crops of rye, clover, forage radishes, hairy vetch, oats, and winter peas have germinated and will help fix nitrogen for next years crops while keeping the soil protected from wind and weather this winter.

We are grateful to the over 120 CSA member households for your business and your enthusiasm. For those of you in our winter extended CSA program we hope you enjoy your veges!

This harvest was SO beautiful that we just had to share the snapshot!

And the veggies for today’s pick up include:
