What you see above is one (of several) garden patches full of fabulous winter veggies. This one features squash, carrots, beets, and rutabaga. Elsewhere in the gardens we have potatoes, parsnips, onions, and garlic, as well as more squash, carrots, and beets. I can assure those of you who endured last year’s shortage that we will have lots of carrots and beets this winter!
But, we are a little short of where we’d like to be for members to eat all these scrumptious veggies. So if any of you have decided you’d like to get winter veggies this year, please let us know ASAP. And for those of you who have friends interested in becoming part of the CSA, please let them know that now is the time to call!
The winter season begins with fall pick-up on Sunday, September 25th. As many members as possible come out this day to help harvest the garden and enjoy a delicious potluck supper before taking home a carload of squash, pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, celery, garlic, greens, root veggies and whatever else is still available in the garden.
Regular winter orders begin the first week of November, and consist of 2 bags of root veggies (potatoes, carrots, beets, rutabaga, onions, parsnips) per full share. This year, we are introducing the option to have fewer potatoes or no potatoes, with extra carrots and beets sent instead. The variety dwindles as the season proceeds, but the winter season ends with a treat: fresh asparagus in mid-May.
Until August 31, the cost for winter shares is $650 for a full share and $400 for a half share. After August 31, prices go up to $675 and $450.
