Notes from the Field

You can eat Kohlrabi raw or cooked.  Chop and cook leaves which are rich in vitamins . . . add to soup.

The garden is lush with all this rain and crops are thriving.  Lettuce is amazing.  Hope you are all enjoying the fresh and flavorful greens.

Remember to blanch and freeze what you can't use now to extend the season!

Food this time of year rings with sweetness...

The carrots are a variety called Nectar, a new storage variety that we are trying in compliment to our usual Bolero...

2014 CSA Fall Notes

Oct
21

Hello CSA members

Happy Autumn!

The bees are eating golden rod, the soil temperature is holding a steady 50 to 55 degrees, and evening time temps dip into the mid to low thirties, and cherry tomatoes are unscathed of frost. I am writing to communicate a number of things to help us all wrap up the 2014 season in good stride. Please note that we have six markets left: two in October and four in November, in November the market hour’s shift from 2pm to 5pm.

Notes from the Field

The sweet peppers, fall roots, and savory late summer/fall crops have peaked to help fill the week 17 bag.  Yes!  

The retrospect of the season in a viewfinder-of-glimpses reveals a spectrum of actity:

Feb/March: Onion seeding and CSA sign up.

April: field work and steadily cool temperatures

May: Workshare starts, find wire worms in onions

Notes from the Field

A short while ago Zoe and I visited a farm in Sabattus, ME names Willow Pond Farm, they have one of the first Community Supported Agriculture programs in the state.  When talking with woman farmer Jill Agnew, she said "... the CSA has been my life blood..." - these words ring in me.

Zoe and I feel grateful for our annual journy to connect and deepen our relationship to growing and distributing food within our community.  Thank you.

We hope all who wanted to and were able could attend the Common Ground Fair.

The moment we've all been waiting for.....

100 days later, from seed to transplant to field to your table - winter squash season is falling into place, how delicious!

Delicata, a local CSA favorite, is in your bag.  A light yellow to orange flesh, and a skin like a potatoe, this squash is versatile: baked, roasted, steamed and mashed, pan sauted.

Enjoy as you will - butter, salt, maple syrup, with pear or apple, savory herbs and cheese or as is.

Notes From the Field

Hello everyone!

I recognize that in our full crop field plan we are introducing some new food items and also giving an abundance of crops that are happening now (ex. tomatoes and beans)

I highly recommend slicing the eggplan thin and brushing it with olive oil to grill, broil, or pan fry.

The Roasting Peppers, when roasted will vary in heat some sweet and others warm, mildly hot to the bite.
