Week #21 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

We have had our first frost this week. (See our Instagram or Facebook for photos) It makes for a bone-chilling morning but a beautiful morning as well. We will be planting garlic for the 2019 season today. Garlic gets planted late fall by hand directly in the fields. Come summer the garlic will be ready to be harvested. For a successful garlic harvest, it requires the perfect winter weather conditions. Cold days with a nice insulating layer of snow. This week’s share is a true fall bonty. You will be getting, beets, celeriac, potatoes, winter squash, kale and more. We always love this time of year! There are so many great warm fall dishes to make with this harvest. Or, meet in the middle and make this Fall Harvest Salad. Not a hot meal but not a cold one either! We hope you enjoy this weeks harvest! Follow us on Instagram or Facebook for the latest update from the farm.

There are great items available on the marketplace. Stock up on these items for the winter months, or order for gifts. We have local honey, local maple syrup, organic coffee, organic dry beans, organic sriracha sauce, and much more! New to the marketplace is Stoneledge Farm wool. We have blankets, rugs, mittens, scarfs, and yarns. With this chilly weather ahead these items will be sure to keep you warm! Alternatively, order these items for a loved one. They make a great gift.

Week #19 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

It is looking more and more like fall here, and it feels like it too! Everyone is still working away and adjusting to the cooler 48-degree mornings. (It is much different than the 70-degree mornings we are used to) Now when we listen to the weather, they are talking about pockets of frost! Currently, on the farm, most of the fall cover crops have been planted. Pete Jr. taught Juan how to run the seeder tractor this past week, and Geo now runs the cultivator. (see our Facebook and Instagram for photos) It is an excellent time of year to learn new jobs on the farm. We are so lucky to have such a great team!

This week is the first harvest of Sweet Potatoes. They are Beautiful! They didn’t mind this extremely rainy summer. We are also harvesting the first of the fall turnips. These turnips are called White Bella Luna Turnips. They are a small, beautifully white, and perfectly round turnip. We hope you enjoy this weeks harvest!

Week #18 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

We hope everyone has been enjoying the cool fall weather so far. It is already, hard to remember the hot and humid days as we enjoy the refreshing fall air. This week you will be getting some fall lettuce in your shares. There is always an abundance of lettuces in the spring, and then it suddenly comes to a quick halt. It should be a treat to have a fresh salad once again. This week you will also be getting more winter squash. There are plenty of ways to cook and use up your winter squash. You can also freeze the winter squash very easily. Use this link for helpful tips. You can also use the winter squash in recipes that call for pumpkin. We hope you enjoy!

This week we are delivering October’s optional Coffee, and Dry Bean Share week. (Can you believe it’s October already?!) Please do not forget your optional shares if you ordered them.

Our favorite time of year! Cool mornings and warm days. The leaves are just begging to change. Before you know it, they will all be painted with beautiful fall colors. We all love this time of year. New this week in your shares is celeriac. This is a Stoneledge Farm staple. Celeriac has such a strong flavor, and multiple ways to use it. We are sure you will love it!
