We continue to make steady progress with our fall tasks. Beds that once nurtured summer crops have been turned over and are now fostering fall crops, or are prepped for crops to overwinter like green onion and spinach.
We've also commenced the transplanting of lettuce and bok choy into our greenhouse tunnels. This move should enable us to continue their growth while maintaining high quality, especially as the cool and damp weather of fall truly settles in.
This week's shares include the first leeks and acorn squash of the CSA season. And there's a fresh bunch of thyme to add an earthy aroma to your fall dishes.
We're also still harvesting some summer favourites like bell peppers and zucchini, so you'll see them in this week's share too.
Next week's shares will continue to lean into fall vibes with garlic and butternut squash.
We are steadily approaching the end of the regular CSA season (on October 20th) and are very thankful for the continued encouragement and support of our CSA members.
We are exploring the idea of extending our CSA shares further into the fall. The cooler weather tends to bring a unique, hearty bounty from the earth, and we are looking forward to a continued harvest including lettuce, spinach, green onion, fall herbs, squash, garlic, onion, microgreens, kale, carrots, beets, among others.
If extending the season is something you'd be interested in, feel free to let us know by emailing, calling, or just telling us during pick-up or delivery. With enough interest we'll proceed to plan accordingly :).
