2009 Winter Season, Week Two

December 12, 2009

This week's harvest:

"Hakurei" salad turnips
Gold Ball turnips
Yukon Gold potatoes
butternut squash
sweet potatoes

This week's farm news:

Brrrr! It's been a chilly week. We even had a day that did not get above freezing! Our low temperature for the week was 14 degrees. At least the sun has been shining & our cabin has been staying nice & cozy with fires blazing in both woodstoves.

So folks, we are planning to come back to town again next Saturday with another load of vegetables and some other treats. And we have next year's sign-up forms available now. [Click on the image at the bottom of this post for a copy to print out.] We are hoping to slightly expand our CSA next year (approximately 10 additional shares) & are looking for new shareholders. All of you devoted vegetable eaters are our number one means of advertising so please spread the word. Get a neighbor to sign up & you could take turns picking up the veggies. Or maybe find a friend or co-worker to share a share & save a little money by getting a bigger share size! Also remember that early registration (now through January) gives you a pretty good discount!

[Please forgive the smudge of farm dirt I brought home on my copy!:)]
