Final pickup for 2008 – 10/8/08

Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

It is very hard to believe the season is ending!  Remember we will still have some veggies available after this week  as they are still growing!  We always have chicken available throughout the winter – just call ahead.  We have wonderful cider this this week, along with sunchokes (similar to potatoes, but nutty in flavor, and packed with vitamin C), and garlic.  So come out on Wednesday and stock up!

We have all enjoyed growing for you this year!!  Please let us know how we can improve our CSA.  Thank you for supporting local, organic agriculture!!
