Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,
Well, here we are at the official beginning of Fall and we are turning our minds to Fall work – harvesting storage crops, picking apples and making fresh cider. We will have our first cider pressing the weekend of October 1 and we welcome anyone who wants to come and watch/ participate. Check our phone message for the exact date as we will press on the best day of the weekend.
It is time to think about getting your storage veggies: carrots, potatoes, beets, apples, onions, leeks, garlic, preserves, applesauce and pesto! We will also be canning apple cider for storage.
It is also time to order your Thanksgiving and/or Christmas TURKEYS!! Get your name on the list while we still have them available.
There are only three more official pickup/delivery dates left. Of course we continue to be open for cider, veggie and wine sales until the snow falls or we run out!
For this week we have reduced the prices on lettuce, potatoes and summer squash. Beans are off the list this week, but we have a new planting of beans that will be ready next week. We have added rutabagas and beets with greens.
So here goes:
regular tomatoes $3.00/# cherry tomatoes 3.00/pint lettuce (leaf and mix) 2.00/quarter # celery 1.50/head summer squash 1.50/# green peppers 3.50/# cukes 2.00/# potatoes 2:00/ # swiss chard 2.50/bunch kale 4.00/bunch cabbage (red and green) 2.00/# (heads are small) carrots 2.50/bunch onions (brown and red) 2.00/# leeks 3.00/bunch rutabagas 2.00/# beets with greens 3.00/bunch garlic bulbs 8.00/# Wolf River apples 2.00/# (great for cooking) chervil 2.00/bunch parsley 2.00/bunch basil 2.00/bag mint 1.00/bunch blueberry jam 5.00/jar pesto (frozen in 4 or 5 oz containers) 1.00/oz applesauce (no sugar) 5.00/qt
Chicken: whole and leg quarters $4.00/# breast quarters 5.00/#
