Farmer’s Note — Week 11

Dear CSA Member

Green Beans, Red Wing Onions, Bright Lights Swiss Chard, Sun Gold Cherry Tomatoes. A rainbow of colors. The calendar says August but the temperature has felt more like late September. Wonderful summer vegetables still fill the shares.

There are 1/2 bushel boxes of Eggplant and also 25 pound boxes of Plum Tomatoes for purchase through the online CSA Marketplace again this week. The Plum Tomatoes have been picked a bit firm so you will need to let them ripen for a day or two. There are a limited number of boxes of each so if you would like to order for this week, please place your online order.

The Marketplace has proven to be a bit tricky to find on the website. I am working with the programmers to develop a quicker link but for now to access the Marketplace please follow the steps below:
Log into your account from the farm website homepage
Click on Marketplace on the upper menu bar
Click on 2013 in the box
Click again on Marketplace on the upper menu bar
Select the items you would like to order and complete the payment screens.

Farm Fall Festival September 7 11:30-3:00. More information on the farm website Farm Blog and on the farm Face Book page Hope you can attend.

Enjoy the summer and the vegetables.
Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
