Sept. 6 pickup

Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

I just returned from RI late last night from a visit with my grandkids.  Jim was supposed to join me there with our computer, but due to winemaking, was unable to come down.  I apologize for not having been able to get out a list!!

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!  Please RSVP so we can begin to plan.

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.

leeks                    3/bu

onions                    1.50/#  (for storage)

hothouse and cherry tomatoes  3.50/#

cukes                    2/#

potatoes                    2/# (for storage)

cabbage                2/#

chicken                       3/#

eggs                    3.25/doz

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 Dill WW Sourdough breads this week.  Please order so she knows how many loaves to make.

We look forward to seeing you on Wed., 3-5:30.

Thank you,

Charlotte and Jim
