Winter CSA Week 1

Great Song Farm Winter CSA begins this Saturday, November 3rd! 
Pickup from 8 am - 4 pm at the CSA Barn.

(If you can't make these hours, let me know please and we can arrange something)

I will have commitment forms available Saturday.  Please bring your checkbook or cash.  If you are unable to pay in full Saturday, we can work something out.

 If you cannot come Saturday but are planning to participate, please contact me and I will make note.

Some details

Here is an outline of the Great Song Farm Winter CSA:

 7 distributions, Saturdays, 8am - 4 pm

November 3rd
November 10th
November 17th

December 1st
December 15th

January 5th
January 19th

Vegetables available

Through November, dwindling as the frost sets in

Lettuce, Arugula, Mustards, Hon Tsai Tai, Boc Choi, Tat Soi, Endive, Escarole, Collards, Parsley, Leeks, Kale

Available throughout the season, though not every pickup

Carrots, Beets, Large Radish, Daikon Radish, Purple Top Turnips, Onions, Shallots, Garlic, Parsnips, Potatoes, Celeriac, Cabbage, Chinese Cabbage, Rutabaga, Butternut Squash, Buttercup Squash

We have varying quantities of these crops, so I will be (hopefully) wisely rationing some of them, and, even so, I don't expect the potatoes, celeriac, or squash will last the season.  We may also have vegetables left after these 7 distributions, at which point I will inventory and collect folks interested in continuing on if that seems like an option.

All of the root vegetables will be dirty, as they store better this way.

Price and Quantity

Share size is the peck basket (1/4 Bushel), somewhere between 8 - 15 pounds of vegetables.

Price is sliding scale $180 - $140.  Again, if this is a hardship please let me know and we can work something out.  We also accept SNAP.

I am excited that so many of you are interested in a Winter CSA.  I will be sending out a newsletter a few days prior to each distribution as a reminder and a little update on the going-ons around the farm as well as what vegetables will be available.

See you Saturday

Motion by CSA member John Fitzpatrick

Honestly, tadpoles grow into frogs.
                Or do frogs emerge
                          From length of movement?

The swirl, the swag,
                 The back and forth
                             of water churning desire into form.

There is no other way to explain it -
                  This essence of one's self
                             moving to completion.
