Fall Baskets and a Barn Dance!
This Saturday, our first ever barn dance, complete with musicians and a caller!
Next Week, the fall baskets begin! Read on for pics of the greenhouses and info on what will be in the share!
Fall Basket Greens SLIDESHOW
Swipe through these photos of the all the awesome greens we have growing for the fall share in our newly heated greenhouses. That plus the beautiful kale and parsley still growing in the field.
Not a boring fall share:
We know, most of you are probably thinking that the fall share is gonna be all beets and radishes, but nothing can be farther from the truth!
The veggies that will be gracing the fall share (at some point)
Greens: baby lettuce bag of spinach bag of greens kale bunch cilantro bunch curly parsley cabbage
Alliums: scallions Red and Yellow onions Shallots Garlic Leeks
Roots: carrots beets parsnips potatoes radish rutabaga
Also: celeriac ginger winter squash
Each week we'll pre-fill your account with ten items (a quart of carrots, or a pint of radishes is 1 item, as is a bunch of kale, a bag of spinach, or a winter squash). Once you've received the weekly contents email, you can go and remove and add items to your share. Don't like beets? No problem, get double carrots instead! Want extra kale? Just sacrifice that garlic you're not as into.
*** Some items will be limited to 1 per member, and not every item will be available each week of the share.
