WEEK #14
Dear CSA Member
We are harvesting all of the summer time crops, cleaning the fields and you will have nice ripe tomatoes, peppers and eggplant again this week.   The summer time crops will soon come to an end.  Enjoy them while they last.
September 12 is the annual Fall Farm Festival from 11:30-3.  If you are using GPS please use 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds, NY 12451.  There are also directions on the farm website, “Contact Us” tab.  Use the Physical Address  Come and meet your farmers, walk the fields where your vegetables are grown.  At 12 we will gather for lunch.  The farm will provide pulled pork with rolls and also a vegetarian stew, roast corn, portobello mushrooms, fresh fruit and coffee.  We ask members to bring a dish to share to help round out the lunch offerings and their own place setting.
There will be wagon rides, walks around the farm, pick a bouquet of flowers and help dig potatoes to take home.   If you would like to take flowers home, please bring your own scissors and something that will keep the flowers until you get home.  Wet paper towels or newspapers in a plastic bag will usually do the trick.  No pets, please.
