CSA WEEK 18

Posted on September 29th, 2020 by Phoebe Gelbard

Sayonara September and Hola October!

We've been given a brief moment of summer weather this week to appreciate and enjoy before the cold is here to stay. Last weeks near frosts are certain to come again soon, but for now these warmer days and evenings are really treating our crops right! Our fields are flourishing with what may be the last of the beans, peppers, and tomatoes of the season, and we're finally shifting our focus to squashes, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbages, and other Fall favorites.

Only a few more weeks left of our 2020 CSA season! Keep your fingers crossed this warm weather holds out and the frost stays away long enough for us to enjoy just a few more weeks of all the beautiful bounty Warner Farm (and our friend farms) have to offer.

P.S. There's still plenty of time to visit Mike's Maze at Warner Farm this season! We know a lot of our members are pretty far away out in Eastern Mass, but we definitely think we are worth the journey (and are confident you'll agree)! If you're planning on making the trip out to experience our maze this season, make sure you check out our website and pre-purchase your tickets ahead of time. Use discount code 'welovewarnerfarmCSA" to get $1 off your tickets! Hope to see you there!
