YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Monday - September 7, 2020
No rain in the forecast, but be sure to keep those umbrellas handy folks!
Mini Boos, Cannonballs, Little Jacks, and Warty Goblins are coming!
We are scrambling this week because our main tractor is having motor issues forcing it out of commission. This makes things stressful and harder to get things accomplished, but we are fortunate that we have good relationships with other local farmers in town to have the ability to borrow equipment to help get the job done.
Fall is in the air and Pumpkin Days will be here before you know it! The field pumpkins are beginning to turn orange early due to the drought conditions this year. We may have some issues with ripening but don't you fret, we will have pumpkins!
We're very excited to get more winter crops into the high tunnels. We are planting winter greens such as winterbor kale, red and white russian kales, swiss chard baby greens, a plethora of spinach varieties, along with green and red lettuce varieties, arugula, and bok choy. Stay tuned on this project, it will be an interesting one!
WHAT TO USE FIRST
DID YOU KNOW
Radishes were brought Massachusetts by 1629. Radishes are members of the Brassicaceae (mustard or cabbage) family. The root is related to kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and horseradish, among others. Radishes are a great low-cal snack; one cup of sliced radishes has only 19 calories.
LETS GET COOKING
BEST ROAST POTATOES EVER

Incredibly crisp and crunchy on the outside, with centers that are creamy and packed with potato flavor. We dare you to make them and not love them. We double-dare you!
