CSA Newsletter: week #15 - Oct 2 & 3

Hello members!
Your veggies this week:
  • carnival squash * courge
  • pie pumpkins * citrouille
  • cherry tomatoes * tomates cerises
  • field tomatoes * tomates
  • carrots * carottes
  • beets * betteraves
  • turnips * navet
  • lettuce * laitue
  • onions * oignons
  • baby bok choy * pe-tsa├»
We hope you are enjoying your different squash varieties!  Here are 8 delicious recipes for your carnival squash.  You will receive a pie pumpkin just in time for Thanksgiving.  Try making pumpkin soup, pie or pumpkin empanadas.  We still have field and cherry tomatoes!  Most farms no longer have tomatoes, so lucky us!  Baby carrots and beets are here for another round and new to the CSA this year are turnips!  Here are some ideas for cooking your turnips.  Lettuce and baby bok choy are your leafy greens for this week.  You'll also receive a quart of onions for your everyday cooking needs.

 white turnips * navet

I'm afraid to say that next week is the last CSA pickup!  We will be offering an extra share to those of you interested, and it will include more squash, potatoes, carrots, beets, turnips, greens, etc - for a total of $50 worth of veggies.  Email me if you're interested in purchasing this extra fall share.

Also, sign up for the 2013 CSA now and receive a $25 discount!  The early-bird special will guarantee you a spot in the CSA and will only be available until March 1st, so get your $100 deposit and post-dated cheques in soon! Having payment early enables us to buy seed and potting soil in January, and pay for heating the greenhouse in March.  It's a win-win situation!

2013 Prices (16 weeks):

Farm pickup $450 early-bird discount, $475 after March 1, 2013.
Embrun pickup $475 early-bird discount, $500 after March 1, 2013
Rockcliffe pickup $525 early-bird discount, $550 after March 1, 2013.

We are also offering bi-weekly shares next year (8 weeks):

Farm bi-weekly pickup $250
Embrun bi-weekly pickup $275
Rockcliffe bi-weekly pickup $300

And if you have a family of 5-7 people, you can buy an extra full share for $450 or add on an additional bi-weekly share to feed all of those mouths!

Enjoy your second-last share!
Team Luxy
