The sun setting fast on the farm

Hello CSA members,

…and goodbye, 2015 farm season! That was a fast and wild ride, wasn’t it? As you all know, this is the final week of distribution before we take a small hiatus until the Thanksgiving share. Alli and I hope you have enjoyed your veggies as much as we have enjoyed growing them for you this season. Reflecting on these past 5 months, I cannot help but feel immense gratitude for the privilege to provide you with nutritious vegetables that fueled your days, expanded your culinary horizons, and nourished your families. Thank you all for being the amazing CSA members that you are.

On this Week 22, your share will include:

Carrots
Shallots
Turnips
Potatoes
Winter Squash
Kale, Chard, or Collards
Garlic
Celeriac
Onions
…and a few other items.

The object of the end-of-season game is to pull out all dead and dying plants from the field. Here are some very dead tomato plants awaiting a trip to the compost pile.
