Week #18.5 of 21: 10/6+10/8- Renew Your Share for 2021

by Erin and Steve on 10/03/20

Lots going on as always this time of year. So **Don't forget to renew your share, current CSA members, for the 2021 growing season** You all received an email last week with a link to the form and payment information. You could also grab a form at this week's share pick up and fill it out in your car or at home at bring it back with your payment. NOW IS THE TIME to renew your share!! We open up the share to people on the wait list after the season is over...which is in 3 weeks! So don't lose your spot.
That being said, we will send the email reminder again the weekend before the last Summer Share pick up which is the week of the 20th. So Tuesday's last pick up is the 20th and Thursday's last pick up is the 22nd. We are so thankful for all your support as well as the bounty these fields continue to provide for our community. How precious that layer of top soil is for sustaining all of us. It's a gift that we should all continue to fight to protect.
A little side note: I have what some are terming 'mask fatigue'. This is normal. I am sick of the on-then-off-then-on again dance I take part in every work day here at the farm. Our crew is required to wear masks at work while working closely with others or when we are inside rooms with each other. This coupled with my allergies and asthma this time of year can make things difficult. But I am still doing it in spite of my discomfort because it works. So if you are experiencing mask fatigue like I am remember that wearing them is worth the effort. And we will one day not have to do it. But for now it is worth keeping each other safe and healthy. Plus there is now the added bonus that cold and flu season won't be as bad as predicted because of mask use and social distancing. There. Glass is half full.
This week's share will include: winter squashes, beets, carrots, fennel, cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, eggplant, onions, kale, greens, celery, radishes, tomatoes, plus brussels sprouts and head lettuce for all.
The fruit share will include apples and pears and plums.
