Weekly Update: October 15th
When does it end!?
A few people have asked about when the final CSA shares of the season will be. We're planning and confident that we'll continue offering shares until Friday, October 29th. For weekly members that will mark the 20th week of the program.
Early-bird 2022 CSA Sign Up
If you're interested in joining us again next season for our 2022 CSA program, keep your eyes peeled for an email we'll be sending in the coming week. Like last year we're giving current members an opportunity to sign on before we start taking on new customers.
Tomatoes Still Going
It's mid-October, there's been no frost, the day's have been hot and the nights mild. Our tomato plants are still trucking along and producing enough for us to continue to include them in our shares.
At this point we're wondering if we'll be able to include tomatoes in our shares all the way until the end of the season.
As the season nears an end and we look ahead to next season, we'd like to ask you what you thought went well, what didn't, what veggies you liked and disliked, and what you would like to see us grow or change.
This is the ideal time of year to gather and act on feedback regarding our "menu" as we haven't placed our seed orders for next season yet and there's plenty of time to consider new crops.
If you have a few moments, check your inbox for this week's email that includes a link to our Season Review Survey. Thanks!

Food Bank Support
So far this season we've donated over 3,400 pounds of fresh produce to our local food banks through the Kawartha Lakes Food Source. Thanks to all of you who support our operation and make this possible :).
