Farmer’s Note — Week #14

Dear CSA Member:

 Fall weather has been creeping in.  It was almost cold this morning.  We are bound to have warm days again, but the seasons are changing.  The sound of the insects is loud and constant.  The sun is shining brightly but just does not have the intensity that we felt during the last month.
The garden is also moving to a new season.  There will still be a few of the summer vegetables that we will pick until the patch is finished.  The fall vegetables are almost calling to us to be picked.  We have dug carrots this week and potatoes.  The root crops have been growing from early spring time and are now mature.  The carrots still have that delicious real carrot flavor but are a bit sweeter.  The cold weather gives many of the vegetables either a brighter color or slightly sweeter flavor.
There are a limited number of 1/2 bushel boxes of green beans available through the CSA Marketplace.  If you would like to freeze beans for the winter, this will be the last of the green beans.  Green beans will also be in the CSA share this week.
Enjoy the last of the summer vegetables as we move into fall.  Thank you to all who were able to visit on Saturday.  If you have photos that you would be willing to share, please send them to and I will post as many as I can on the farm Facebook page.
Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm.
