Harvest, September 16, 2009

Looks like it will probably be another wet harvest day, but you’ll not hear me complain, this has been a great summer.  We will be passing out the end of season survey this week.  The last harvest isn’t until October 6, but we want to give everyone plenty of time to fill it out and return it before the season ends.  Please be as frank as possible on the survey, as we really do rely on it to help us make planning decisions for next year’s CSA. You will probably notice a slow-down in hot weather crops, like tomatoes and cucumbers, in the next three weeks, as the cool nights and shorter days slow their growth.  On the up-side, the fields are full of fresh seedlings of fall crops like broccoli, kale, kohlrabi, etc. for the winter CSA, and this weather has been great for getting them started.
