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.

Our marketplace items sell out quickly this time of year. Please order soon if you are interested.
