This Week’s Share — Week 19

Dear CSA Member

The woods surrounding the farm are full of giant oaks and we use a twig from the oak tree in the farm logo. The oaks are always last to change color and they have just started to turn. The ground is scattered with acorns from the oak trees and the squirrels are running from tree to tree.  Deer and turkeys walk the back wood line and stop to eat as they slowly make their way.  While the other trees have lost most of their leaves last week during the heavy rains and wind, the oaks are still full.

Lettuces, Napa Cabbage, Boc Choi, Dill before a frost.  We are going to run out of warm weather eventually and want to make sure that we pick all of the most tender plants.  Beets, Leeks and Broccoli don’t mind the cold.

The weeks are slipping away and supplies of some Marketplace products will be getting limited.  Please place your orders for honey, maple and coffee if you would like to stock up for the winter months.

Enjoy the wonderful warm fall weather we have been having and the wonderful harvest.
Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
