Summer Share #12 of 20: 8/24+8/26 Some Reminders

by Erin and Steve on 08/23/21

That's right, here's some shop talk:
**Winter Share sign ups will be starting next week!! I'll send out emails to remind you, but the Winter Share runs for 7 weeks from November until the end of January. In order to sign up just bring your payment with you to share pick up (next week) and say you want a Winter Share. Info coming atcha soon ;)
**If you want to buy tomatoes or pickling cucumbers to preserve, right now is the time to do so. They are peaking. We don't have tons to sell, so the best time to buy is when you see them. Please don't wait until mid to late September, there won't be a lot of extras then.
**A reminder that WE GROW EVERYTHING IN THE CSA SHARES. Why in all caps? Because sometimes I have to scream it (in a nice way, of course) a few times in order for people to hear me. There is a lot of skill and some freaking gosh darn talent involved in running this farm. Also a lot of time, and  sweat, too. The only things we do not grow are the fruit in the fruit share which is explained on our website under the fruit share tab. Sometimes people then get confused that we grow melons. Melons are annuals, they grow like cucumbers and work in our farm rotation so we grow them and include them in our Summer CSA veg share. They are not perennials like stone fruit, tree fruit, and brambles, which are all in the fruit share.
**The share this week is HUGE and will include: potatoes, squash, carrots, beets, onions, eggplant, peppers, cabbage, cucumbers, cantaloupe, lettuce, watermelons, and tomatoes
**The fruit share will include peaches, plums, and nectarines
**Don't forget to order your Savage Wheat Project goodies
