This is the last week of our CSA for 2019!
The 18 weeks have gone by quickly. It seems like we were just relishing the first salad greens of the season, eagerly anticipating that early zucchini and still salivating at the thought of a fresh tomato … or juicy blackberry. And now it’s over! Only 1 more box of produce – though it is all vegetables that will store well, and can be enjoyed and savored for an extended time.
What’s in the box?
Squash, sweet peppers, spinach, arugula, onions, garlic.
- The squash is all harvested and in the barn now. While not all varieties did well, there is more than enough delicious & beautiful squash to satisfy our CSA members & farmers’ market customers. Check them out …
- We continue to pick sweet peppers – coloured bells (red, yellow, orange & chocolate) and the very sweet shepherds. There will be several in the box again this week. Keep them in a plastic bag in the fridge and they last for weeks! Or cut them up & tuck them in the freezer. The shepherds are great roasted too!
- Spinach & arugula are the greens for this week.
- Onions & garlic finish off this last CSA box of the season.
We have had another week of mostly wonderful fall weather. The leaves are turning colour now, and the autumn flowers are blooming. It’s certainly my favourite time of year!
Thank you to all for being part of our CSA this season.
We appreciate your support of our small family farm, the confidence you place in us to supply your fresh produce, and your commitment to coming out to the farm (or the market) each week to pick up your share.
We hope you enjoyed the taste, variety & surprise of a new box of fresh vegetables each week!

Thanks Hedy. You are such a faithful reader of our blog, and always have encouraging comments too!
I will attempt to keep posting throughout the winter – but probably not as often.
