Snow in October?!?

Every good farmer becomes obsessed with the weather. I am constantly fighting over the computer with Andy like school grade siblings. Be thankful that he's the boss and wins the elbow shoving run toward the computer or your share would be quite short this week due to snow! Our biggest harvest of the week is on Friday in preparation for the weekend, but Andy decided to harvest Thursday instead. Good choice considering we woke up to over an inch of snow... heavy, wet snow covering our crops and fields. It's still pretty early in the season for snow to be sticking the ground! Who can really complain when all the weather patterns this year have been so obscure.

This week's harvest includes:
Lettuce, arugula, kale, chard, mustard greens, bok choy, carrots, beets, potatoes, leeks, cabbage, radish, broccoli, winter squash and garlic!

Make sure to check out this month's Saveur Magazine and read the article "The Roots of Flavor"

CSA MEMBERS... can't believe the season is over? Want to extend your share just one more week?? We are offering an extra share next week if you sign up for the 2012 season and pay for your share in full. Enjoyed what we offered this year? Be sure to tell your friends. We hope to see your smiling faces in 2012.

Thanks for all your support!
