CSA e-news for September 15 &17
Prepare for the worst - hope for the best - inside every farmer, there is an eternal optimist. We planned for the killing frost and brought in a ton of vegetables and flowers...covered plants with fabric...waited...and...things are not that bad!
The warm season crops are definitely slowed down and we may not get very much off them but things are in better shape than originally thought, however, let's be real - climate change is a challenge and making it harder for farmers every year to produce what we need to sustain local systems. We've all got work to do.
Thank you to the many folks who offered help, showed up, prayed, sent vibes - we made it through! The storm was wet which was good for the soil - but not as cold as projected! It hovered right around 30 degrees(f) for most of it and usually 28f will kill plants - so we got very lucky!
Harvest list - September 15 & 17
