CSA Newsletter: week #16 - Oct 9 & 10

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
We are at our final week of the regular season CSA.  Next week, we will have a fall box available for those interested.  It will include $50 worth of winter squash, potatoes, turnips, beets, carrots, kale, chard, and possibly eggplant and peppers.  We will arrange a pickup/delivery time and day with each of you individually.

If anyone is interested in helping plant garlic this Saturday, Oct. 13th, we will begin around 3pm and provide food for after the hard work is finished.  Send us an email!

Now, I'll have to make this newsletter short and sweet because on Friday, October 5th, I gave birth to our beautiful daughter, Ayla Beatrice Näf (pronounced Eye-la)!  She arrived at 8:36pm after a good 21-hours of labour, 2 weeks early.  At 6 lbs, 5 oz and 19 inches long, she's tiny and amazing.  I can't wait for you all to meet her!
I got home from the hospital last night, and after less than 3 hours of non-consecutive sleep, I'm in no head space to be searching for delicious recipes.  However, here is your list of veggies for this final week:

  • Cabbage * chou
  • Spaghetti squash * courge
  • Turnips * navet
  • Sweet potatoes * patate douce
  • Spinach * épinards
  • Carrots * carottes
  • Beets * betteraves
  • Kale * chou frisé
Please don't forget to fill out your surveys.  I'll send out a final newsletter next week with the results.  Have a great long weekend!
