2015 Fall CSA – Week 32

Week 32

This is an even week.

A warm welcome from your favorite gardeners, we have had such a wonderful year of growing. This is a bitter sweet time in the year for our team. Members of our farm family are preparing to leave for their next adventures in vegetables. This is also the ending point in our CSA season, we will have this share and two more weeks of lovely produce. After that we will be re grouping for the winter season!

I am really looking forward to putting the 2016 application in your hands and homes! We have some new changes that are exciting and I think that they will be welcomed by our CSA family. Keep your eyes peeled the application will soon be out!

If you have any thoughts, comments or recipes that you would like to share with the garden please send them to my email at: Mary.Bruce@Whiteoakpastures.com
