Fresh Earth Farms Newsletter 9-28-2010

Lots of big projects these last many weeks: squash, edamame, pumpkins, potatoes, garlic, onions, shallots are all harvested at the same time.  That doesn’t sound right.  What I mean is the all that plants in a given category, say squash, are ready at the same time and need to be harvested and stored as opposed to say tomatoes that we harvest over many weeks.  These large project make for very long days, weeks and months!  And of course the usual harvesting of weekly produce doesn’t stop.

So due to these projects I have been remiss with getting out a weekly newsletter as well as weekly pictures of the produce.  My apologies.  I felt given the limited time and resources it was better to get the harvest in than to entertain you.  Besides, you would get the same produce whether I told you what you were getting or not.  And since some of these projects have not been completed yet — specifically potato digging — I still don’t have time to entertain you.  So I am just going to stick with the important announcements.

This week’s produce: We should have edamame, potatoes, winter squash, onions, garlic, shallots, bok choi, kohlrabi, celery (very strongly flavored celery — cooking recommended), carrots, peppers, tomatillos and some other stuff I have forgotten.

Garlic Planting
Just a reminder that we are having a garlic planting party on Saturday October 2nd from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, lunch included.  We could use some more volunteers.  Please let me know if you can help us out.  And if not, don’t expect a newsletter next week.

FruitShare
We have apples, pears and Asian pears coming this week.  Should be another delicious box o’ fruit!

Also, we are still taking orders for the rest of the year FruitShare and January-May FruitShare.  Please see the web site or contact us for more details.  Delicious, certified organic fruit all year long!

CheeseShare
This is the last CheeseShare for the season.

MeatShare
The last MeatShare is this Friday (October 1st).  Plan to pick-up your meat here at the farm during our normal pick-up hours (or contact us for special arrangements).  Better yet, come out to the garlic planting party and pick-up your meat at the same time!

EggShare
Yes there is EggShare this week.
