Chatfield CSA e-news for September 18-20

Posted 9/16/2018 9:24am by Josie Hart.

Dear shareholders,

Though summer crops are slowing down in earnest now (our last tomato pick was 300 pounds, down from our record of 1200 pounds!) we've still got plenty of storage crops such as winter squash, onions and garlic; and our last plantings of quick crops such as bok choy and hakurei are just up under rowcover. This year we are planning on holding distributions until the week of October 23-25, so another six weeks of produce yet to come!

Last week we discovered a new snack: fennel flowers! We'll cut some stalks to give out, since they are super sweet and have a nice fennel flavor. I think they'd be great sprinkled on a salad. 

A note for Tuesday shareholders, Judiasm Your Way is happening with multiple services on 9/18, and so parking will be extremely limited.

HARVEST LIST:

  • Napa cabbage
  • Onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Peppers
  • Winter squash
  • Head lettuce
  • Fennel flowers

*Please note the exact share may change due to weather or crop conditions.
