Share #21 of 21: 10/20+10/22-Final Pick Up Share-and-a-Halfby Erin and Steve on 10/17/20
Wowee we made it to the final Summer Share pick up. This season's final pick up is actually a share and a half so it'll fill your fridge for sure. It is also time to bring us your renewal form for 2021. We sent out another email to current members with a link to the renewal form, but we still have them available in the share room as well. Of course you could just send them to us via snail mail as well, but just make sure to let us know you are renewing so we don't accidentally give your spot to someone on the wait list.
As for all you Winter Share peeps, the Winter Share will start the first week of November (which means there is a week between the end of the Summer Share and the start of the Winter Share).
As for us, we've been harvesting with all our might. Planning around our Summer Share harvests, wholesale harvests, and weekly chores in order to get everything else into the root cellar or cooler before we get a first legitimate snow. We've gotten all the sweet potatoes and potatoes out, half the carrots, and half the beets, and most of the parsnips in, but there's lots more to go. Good thing this Fall's weather has been A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. We're lucky for that, but it's looking like this week is going to turn on the faucet, unfortunately. For all you people who aren't on Instagram, but want to check out pictures from what's happening on the farm, click on the camera icon at the top of this page.
As for the FINAL Summer Share, it will include: winter squashes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, cauliflower, onions, salad turnips and radishes, celery, radicchio, kohlrabi as well as butternut squash, cabbage, leeks, kale, and greens for everyone.
The final fruit share will include apple cider, apples and pears.
