YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Monday - October 4, 2021
It looks like we'll be having inclement weather every other day, be sure to have your umbrellas ready folks!
Another 2.5" of precipitation last night and luckily the bulk of it is over. The fields are flooded or oversaturated depending on what part of town you're on and it makes it extremely difficult to grow, harvest, and get the actual product out. This season has been awful and it's one for the history books that's for sure.
On a happy note both high tunnels have been cleared and turned over. We were able to prepare the soil and plant for our winter growing program. The lettuces and kales went in over the weekend and we'll finish the rest at the beginning of the week. Look forward to winter greens and staple vegetables over the holidays.
Some of our fields have already been put to bed for the 2021 season. The month of October goes by so fast because we are closing things down on one side and ramping them up on the other. Before you know it we'll have our first frost and the cold will begin to seep in. So much to do before then.
Lastly, only 2 weeks left (including this one), for the CSA farm share. Where did the time go! I feel like we just started the season when we were telling you all about it. We're going to miss you guys. We only grow with feedback though. How it went, what you liked, what you didn't like, and if you will be back next year? You can always message us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to hear from you!

WHAT TO USE FIRST
DID YOU KNOW: Beets
The entirety of the beet plant is edible, from the tips of its leaves, down to its long pointed root. Sautéed beet greens anyone?
LETS GET COOKING

Our friend and James Beard nominated chef, Matt Jennings, walks us through his rendition of a New England favorite: Red Flannel Hash. Not only is this recipe delicious but it's also easy to make and requires just few long-lasting pantry ingredients.
