Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,
We are starting to pick apples this week!! Usually we start the week of the Common Ground Fair, the third weekend in September. So, like the rest of this season, apple harvest is two weeks earlier than usual. What a beautiful growing season it has been!
We are going to skip the Wednesday, 9/15/10, in order to harvest apples and allow for a pickup in October, when we will have fresh cider, apples, and the winter squash available. So remember: NO PICKUP ON 9/15/10, the next one after this week will be 9/22/10. Please let me know if you want to come out for squash, tomatoes and cukes, as they have to be picked anyway.
We have a long list for this week, with some additions and price changes:
Frozen blueberries 3.25/# Beets 3.50/# green peppers 3.50/# hot peppers 3.50/# chard 3./bu onions (storage and sweet Alsa Craigs) 2/# leeks 2/# potatoes 2/# kale 4/# garlic 8/# zukes and patty pans 1,50/# cherry and regular tomatoes 3/# cukes pickling 2/# slicing .60/cuke mixed leaf lettuce 2.50/quarter pound head lettuce (Buttercrunch – yum) 2/head cabbage green storage and green savoy(crinkly) 1.50/# dill 2/bu basil 1.75/bag parsley 2/bu cilantro 2.50/bu leaf celery 2/bu
