What’s in the Bag Week #11

Dear CSA member,

This week you will be getting a share full of color — summer mixed in with some early fall crops, bright tomatoes and peppers along with rainbow carrots. You will also be getting potatoes and leeks this week. Try this delicious potato leek soup.

***Reminder: This is the last week for Story’s farm sweet corn. All final corn orders need to be placed by 12 pm Friday, August 18 for delivery.

We hope that you will mark your calendar with the upcoming Fall Farm Festival. The festival will be held on the farm Sept. 2 from 11:30 am – 3 pm. Please use the 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds, NY 12451 address. There are directions on the farm website “Contact Us” tab or you can use GPS. It is a great day to come to the farm and see how your vegetables are grown, meet your farmers and walk the fields. We will have the grill fired up and will serve pork as well as grilled sweet corn and portobello mushrooms and vegetarian chili. There will be fresh fruit, Stoneledge Farm coffee, and water. We ask that members bring a dish to share so that the lunch will be a giant pot luck/get-together. If possible, please bring your own place settings, utensils, and cups. No pets, please.

 

There are flowers to pick and take home from our garden. If you would like to take flowers home, please bring your own scissors and something that will keep the flowers moist until you get home. Wet paper towels or newspapers in a plastic bag will usually do the trick. There will be an “I Spy” game for kids of all ages as well as scarecrow making!

Enjoy the harvest,
Candice for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
