Dear CSA Member
Fall staples: potatoes, carrots, beets and garlic this week. We are in the final weeks of our 2013 CSA season and as the weather gets colder, the vegetables get heartier. The colors of the vegetables are so vibrant as the cold weather hits. The root crops even seem to get sweeter with a bit of frost.
Members have been sharing delicious recipes that I have been adding to the farm website Recipe section. If you have a favorite, please pass it on so it can be added. If you have a favorite website or blog that you think other CSA members would enjoy, please send that along as well.
Marketplace items are still available if you would like to place an order and stock up for the winter. Honey, maple, coffee will all keep well. Please don’t wait until the last minute because some items will sell out. New this week are 15 pound bags of Potatoes, Carrots and Beets.
Tuesday the 29th of October we will be planting garlic and members are invited to come to the farm and help if they would like. We are trying to work around the weather and we were not able to make the planting day a weekend. We needed to pick the best day weather wise to plant the garlic. If you are planning on coming to help please bring your own lunch and drinks, dress warmly it has been cold and windy. We will meet at 9 AM at the barn at 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds, NY 12451 and we work until 4. If you can’t make it, the garlic will be safely planted, covered and will spend the winter in the field. We will see it early next spring once again as it is one of the first plants to push their green leaves from the ground.
Keep warm and enjoy the vegetables.
for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
