Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,
Who can believe it is the end of August!! This month has flown by in the intensity of blueberry season and the abundant harvest coming in. We have had to say goodbye to Sarah and Molly as they move on in their lives. We thank them so very much for all they brought to the farm! Sarah promises to come back the first weekend of each month for the Blue Hill contradance and we hope to see Molly between her exciting trips to far-flung parts of the world. We have been so very blessed with wonderful young people joining us and we are so glad to have Maddie and Michelle continuing on for a while longer with us!!!
We are starting to plan our CSA Harvest Dinner. We are looking at Saturday, Sept. 30. Those of you who were with us last year know that this is our gift to you, our friends and CSA members, to say thank you for your support of our farm, and to celebrate the wonderful time of harvest. So, SAVE THE DATE!! More details will follow, but just plan on being hungry!
Our offering this week are pretty much the same as last week, however, fresh blueberry season is over. If you would like your frozen blueberry orders to count toward your share, just let us know. Frozen berries are 3.50/# and are packaged in 5# bags.
French haricot beans: 3/#
small summer squash 1.50/# large ones free for relish, etc.
hothouse and cherry tomatoes 3.50/#
chicken (very freshly frozen Monday!) 3/#
We will soon be digging all the storage onions, carrots and beets and starting to harvest the winter squash. We have harvested the garlic and it is drying and will be ready to distribute it about two weeks.
Maddie is making Anadama and WW Sourdough breads this week. Maybe some muffins. Please order so she knows how many loaves to make.
We look forward to seeing you on Wed., 3-5:30.
Charlotte and Jim
