Week #22 — Note from the Farmer

October 30, 2016

Dear CSA Member,

A cold and blustery day today after we have had our first snow fall of the season. (4 inches) Enough to water the garden. New this week is celeriac. Many members might remember it from past seasons. But if you don’t Celeriac is a close relative to celery except it is grown for its roots rather then its stalk. Celeriac is ready for harvest after a few light frost in early fall. Celeriac can be used in soups, stews or even eaten raw as a salad. Below is a link with some Farm Favorite Celeriac recipes.

This week on the Online Marketplace there are Apples, Kale, Collards, Shallots and Carrots available in bulk if you are interested. We only have 2 more deliveries after this week. These items are great for freezing during the winter months! The Online Marketplace also offers local honey and maple syrup along with other items such as, organic coffee and chocolate. These items sell out quick this time of year. Order soon to ensure you can get the products you would like.

We have taken our yearly photo. It is bitter sweet as we near the end of the season. I have posted a photo of our 2016 Farm Crew on the farm Facebook page and Farm website Farm News page: https://www.stoneledge.farm/on-the-farm/farm-blog. Take a look.

This week is a coffee share week.

Candice for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
