Summer Share #19 of 22: 10/8+10/10 Share Renewal Starts this Weekby Erin and Steve on 10/05/19
Well, we got our first little frost of the Fall and that means it's time to RENEW YOUR SHARE FOR 2020!! Yes, all you current CSA members will be sent emails shortly with instructions on how to renew your share for next year. This is your big chance to renew because come November we will start signing up people on the waiting list to fill any vacancies ;)!!
The first little frost means that the vegetables out in the fields will actually start becoming sweeter. "Whaaaattt?", you ask. Plants will actually naturally start producing their own sugars to help prevent themselves from freezing when the temperature drops. It's a self defense mechanism for survival. Yes, mother nature has her own natural anti-freeze and it's called sugar! How amazing. And how wonderful for us veggie lovers, too.
So read your email in full (Srsly!) for all the info you need to renew for next year and come to the share with your payment in hand and ready to take home these guys: potatoes, sweet potatoes, buttercup squash, pumpkin squash, kohlrabi, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, beets, salad turnips and radishes, sweet peppers, eggplant, hot peppers, fennel, bok choy, kale, cabbage, edamame, garlic and head lettuce.
The fruit share will include seedless table grapes, apples, pears and maybe the last of the peaches!
