Week #9 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

It has been a difficult week here on the farm. The heat, humidity, and rain have certainly been a challenge for us as well as the vegetables. The forecast is still calling for rain as we wait patiently for dry weather. Despite the weather, the shares are still showing off their bright summer colors. This week as we call it is a Fiesta week! Cilantro, tomatillos, tomatoes and more! Sounds like a great salsa (or salsa verde) to me! Our favorite!

This is also a coffee share and dry bean share week. If you ordered these optional shares please expect them with this weeks CSA pickup.


Saturday, September 1st here on the farm. 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds NY 12451. Bring your family for a great day on the farm. (More information to come) Make a getaway out of it and enjoy the Catskills!
