[CSA Update] Welcome to week 2

Posted on September 10th, 2021 by Ida DeFrancesco

Two weeks left and your basket is packed with flavor! The fields love the change in weather, away from the hot baking days into the warm nights and comfortable days. September is full of change. Over the years, September has marked the return to school, which marks the change in home schedules, return to sports schedules, return to longer work schedules, and a whole host of new activities to fit into routines. September also holds the last day of summer on the 22nd.

Folks that like tomatoes should be celebrating this week - they made it!  We started picking the grape and cherry tomatoes as well for the first time in several weeks.  We walk around holding them like the precious fruits they are.  Folks have been making sauce and planning ahead for the winter.  Frozen, dehydrated, and canned - it feels great to have a couple of jars on the shelves.  After a long day at work, you can come home to a comforting bowl of pasta or spaghetti squash covered in cheese and your sauce.  You can also make a fresh sauce and use it right away - just enjoy that great tomato flavor of summer.

Thank you for being part of our beautiful, vibrant farm community!  We are proud of how much we all learned and developed this year, and we hope the produce you took home showed the love and knowledge we poured into it.  We will be sending out updates for the 2022 season and we would love to have you be part of our farm again next year.

Our 2022 shares will be available exclusively to our current CSA members.  If you know you are ready for it - make sure you are set up for auto-renew.  Not sure if you are set up for auto-renew?  Click here - make sure your auto-renew is "on" and stay tuned for additional details about 2022 soon!
