Week #23 at Red Hill Farm, by Angela

Week #23 (one more week to go)--plus broccoli bonus pickup for EVERYONE (see below)!

This is a Full Share and Bi-Weekly Tuesday Share pickup week.

Brendan will be in the shareroom to assist you this week. We've felt the brisk change of seasons as the cooler mornings have come, and now the abrupt darkness soon after the day is over.

Due to the lack of a tractor in August, most of you will recall that our broccoli plants were transplanted nearly a month later than planned. This late transplanting has also put them behind in terms of maturing in time for our CSA dates. Please mark your calendars for the morning of Saturday, November 23rd: I invite you ALL (Full Shares and Bi-Weekly Shares) to come out for a bonus broccoli pickup that morning between 10 a.m. and noon. If you are unable to come, please send someone in your place to sign off for your share of broccoli. The broccoli will not be held for another date, and broccoli shares that are not picked up will be donated to Anna's Place. If you ask me, the timing is perfect for some farm-fresh Thanksgiving broccoli!

There are still places left to join Libby Mills this weekend for a Vegetarian Thanksgiving Demo! Please see the flyer in the last post (click here) for more details. Another good event to get some great ideas on what to do with the fall produce.

This week you may anticipate:

  • Salad mix
  • Beets (bunches with more greens than roots)--the greens are excellent used like spinach
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Peppers
Cheers, Angela
