Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,
“Officially” we have only two more pickups, this Wednesday and October 1!!!! However, judging by the garden, things are still growing vigorously. So here’s our plan: we will have 3 more pickup dates, through October 8. We will start making cider on Saturday, Oct. 4, so cider will be available for pickup from then on. This schedule will enable us to let the garden keep growing as long as possible, enable those of you who have unused shares to use them for cider, etc., on the 8th, and those of you who are on schedule with your shares to either skip a week and come out on the 8th, or just come out anyway to get cider and apples. We will be happy to see you on Sat., Oct. 4 for the cidermaking. We generally have cider available to sell by midafternoon.
We have had a wonderful reunion weekend with several of our past apprentices coming to the Commonground Fair and to visit the farm. Chris and Shoshanna came for a visit and it was so good to see them!! They are talking about coming back next summer – how wonderful that would be!! We hope their lives bring them here again.
So here’s what’s available this week:
We probably will not have much of broccoli, summer squash and cukes, as they are about passed. But we are adding beets, a few winter squash, green peppers, and rutabagas.
green peppers $3.00
winter squash 1.50/#
potatoes $2/# (fingerlings $3/#)
summer squash $2.00/#
sungold cherry tomatoes $3.00/pt
green and red cabbage $1.50/#
Blueberry syrup $8/10oz bottle (our fruit and all organic ingredients)
Peach Preserves $7/12oz jar (our peaches, low sugar, all organic ingredients)
Cider syrup $10/10oz bottle (ask to taste this – unbelievable!)
pickle relish $5.00
frozen pesto $1.50/oz
/Enjoy this beautiful weather!!!
We will look forward to your reply and to seeing you between 3-5:30 on Wednesday.
