Week #17 of 21: 9/29+9/31 A Share and a Half

by Erin and Steve on 09/27/20

Last year we set up the share schedule to give us a week off before the Winter Share starts. When the very late freezing temperatures in May moved our start date back a week, our week off at the end of the Summer Share disappeared. To remedy the solution and ensure we can get the heavy harvests in for the Winter we are going to have a Share and a Half this week, and then again in a later share week. So GET READY FOR A BIG WEEK of veggies. That also means the last pick up for the Summer Season will be October 20th and 22nd. That also also means we are starting share renewal for 2021 for current members this week as well! Woohoo. Nothing like an 84 degree weekend at the end of September to get you starting to think about next Summer already!
So look to your inbox soon for the share renewal form. Please do not share this with friends not currently in the share as they are not current members (yet ;) Just follow the instructions in the email and on the sheet to renew your share for next year. Now is also the time to sign up for the Spring, Fruit, an Meat Shares on the same renewal form.
As for this week's share-and-a-half, it will include: winter squashes, beets, carrots, eggplant, peppers, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower (if weather permits), onions, fennel, bok choy, spinach PLUS Acorn squash, head lettuce, toamtoes, greens mix, braising greens, and garlic. Phew. Get your fridge, food processor, dehydrator, and/or freezer ready...or your belly of course.
The fruit share will include raspberries, apples, peaches, plums, and pears.
