2017 CSA Week 11

by danberube on September 10, 2017

Hello Farm Friends!

It feels like fall out there, so we’re adding in some fall veggies this week. After a long growing season, our butternut squash and leeks are finally ready! These are two of my favorite crops on the farm, so I hope you enjoy them.

Other than that, we’re starting to wind down the farm for the fall. Soon we’ll be plowing most of the field to plant a cover crop of winter rye. This protects the field during the off-season, and when we cut it in the spring and plow it back into the field, it will improve the soil fertility, consistency, and organic matter.

Remember we’ve only got 3 weeks left, so make sure you use up all your pickups for the season. If you need to know how many you have left, please email me.
