YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Sunday - October 11, 2020
It looks like we may have some rain this week folks, keep those umbrellas handy!
Jack-o-lanterns from the 2019 CSA Pumpkin Carving Contest
This is the last week for the CSA farm share, 20 weeks have flown by, and it is always a little bittersweet. In a way we feel a bit of relief that we made it through the craziest part of the season and we all get a little break, but we are also sad that we won't see all of you until next year.
We really appreciated your early commitment to our farm and can't emphasize enough how you all made it possible for us to weather this really challenging season. We are always at the mercy of something, mother nature, politics, pandemics, you name it, and that means there is an element of unpredictability to every season. Your membership brought so much stability to our farm. It helped us increase our growing acreage, hire more people, and invest in the infrastructure needed to make our farm more sustainable.
A big thank you to everyone who placed their trust in us and helped our farm grow!
Lastly, even though we will be taking-down the farmstand sometime in November, that doesn't mean we are closing. We will be open year round through our online farm store. You will be able to enjoy fresh greens, storage veggies, and all of our farm to table goodies right through spring. More details will follow, so stay tuned!
Oh, and don't forget about the CSA Pumpkin Carving Contest! This week we will give participating members a large pumpkin for carving and a medium one to those who are not, and would like to decorate their step. Be sure to review the rules and dates below. We can't wait to see what you all create!
Thank you again,
Owner Harrison Bardwell
WHAT TO USE FIRST
DID YOU KNOW
You can roast the seeds of any kind of winter squash, the same as you would for pumpkin seeds? You can! Clean the strings off by rinsing under running water, toss with 1-2 tsp of oil and season. Try seasoning them with salt, cumin, and chili powder. Tamari with a little wasabi powder is another yummy variation.
