BPF CSA Week 11

Past the half-way mark! Hard to believe, but even if CSA lasts 22 weeks (max possible for the season), we are now halfway through.  And tomatoes are just starting to trickle in.  We harvested the first 3 large tomatoes and first 2 pints of cherry tomatoes from the field today (as opposed to the hoophouse where all tomatoes up til now have come from).  Ah. It's on the horizon! (the tomato tsunami)
In Your Share This Week:
Summer Squash and/or Zucchini
Hakurei Turnips
Cherry Tomatoes
Sweet Onions
Potato Medley
Kale or Chard
Lettuce- mix of varieties of leaf/butterheads

1.Remember: Red Barn Yoga tomorrow (Wed) from 7-8 pm.  All are welcome.  All levels class, by donation, taught by Amy Hubbell.  Wear comfortable clothes,  bring a yoga mat, towel, and/or lightweight blanket-- the barn floor is old and wood and may be splintery.

2. Upcoming: Let's set the date for our end-of-season CSA potluck celebration!  Traditionally it's been attached to either the big squash harvest (usually early Oct) or the garlic planting party (end of Oct).  I suggest early-mid Oct. so we might still have good weather for an outdoor event! Which of these dates looks best to you (work party approx 2 pm, potluck approx 5:00 pm):
Sat. Oct. 5
Sat. Oct 12
Sun. Oct 13
Tues. Oct 15 (during normal CSA pickup time)

That's it for now- thanks for reading, and please enjoy your food.
