While we bake in the summer heat this week–working to keep up with everything planted–we are already thinking about winter. This week I am working on planning out exactly what our Winter Produce Share will look like. I am thinking forward to flavorful sweet carrots, potatoes, and tender leafy greens while harvesting summer squash and cucumbers. Last week Kevin was able to begin prepping ground for some fall and winter-harvested crops. We have offered a Winter Produce Share for many years now, and through much trial and error and innovation we have figured out how to put together a Winter Produce Share that is equally as diverse and bountiful as our Summer Produce Share. We are working on finalizing the details of this year’s Winter CSA and will have signup info out soon.
As we work to hammer out those details we always appreciate hearing what you want to receive in your Share. The year before last we heard requests for more greens. I responded by adding pea shoots and a few other items to the wintertime repertoire. Let us know what you want in particular from your Winter Produce CSA Share and we will work to make that happen! Would you like locally-sourced hothouse tomatoes? Mushrooms? Dry beans? Frozen berries? Popcorn, even MORE greens? Less of something? More of something?… Please let us know if there is anything you are dying to get in your Winter Produce Share by talking with me or Kevin at the CSA pickup, or by replying to this email.
Pastured Egg Shares, Pastured Chicken Shares, Pastured and Grass-fed Meat Shares, and Local Cheese Shares are also offered in the winter months. Signup details for all your Winter Shares are coming soon.
