A sniff of fall

Hello all,

Greetings! Feeling a little fall-ish out there these past few days. Nice temperature to work in. Last week in the mid 90 degree days we dug, crated, and carried into the basement about 10,000 pounds of potatoes. That ought to fill all of your bellies for awhile. We got about 12,000 pounds last year with the same size planting, so the yield was down a bit. There was more rain last year so that is probably where the difference came from. All in all we are very chuffed up to have 10,000 pounds of potatoes hunkered down in our basement. Talk about food security. You'll start seeing potatoes on the one bag side this week.

Payment in full is due for the summer CSA by Columbus Day, or October 12th. Please email me if you don't know your balance and I'll let you know. Please allow we a week or so for me to respond before you get to wondering about me.

On the list:
tomatoes, peppers, celery, spinach, head lettuce, potatoes, kale, chard, collards, endive, parsley, basil, hot pepper, onions, summer squash (this is almost over, 1 or 2 more weeks and it's through), cabbage, beets, carrots

berries: 4 quart season limit
unlimited: beans, edemame, cherry tomatoes, paste tomatoes, chard, kale, basil, flowers, hot peppers, tomatillos, mint

Okay!, See you at the farm,
