Week #22
THIS IS A COFFEE SHARE DELIVERY WEEK.
Dear CSA Member
Week #22 already.  This season is nearly finished.  There will be two more deliveries after this week.  We hope to have the 2016 season open for sign up late in November and we will send you an e-mail.  It seems that CSA keeps growing each year.  We started with our CSA deliveries almost 20 years ago now.  Our first site was the Carnegie Hill CSA followed by Yorkville CSA and there are still first and second season members who are on the Core Group working away each week as we deliver the shares after 20 seasons.  Members who were just starting families now have children in college as 20 years has passed. Friendships have formed. The CSA has become a fixture in the community as the truck pulls up each week and crates and crates of produce are unloaded. Our own family has grown up and now our son who was only a little kid, picking and helping pack shares each week now is in charge of the farming operations.  A legacy of community commitment and community support for each other and our farm.
This week there are Sweet Potatoes.  Members have asked for them and we decided to try growing them this season.  They are a crop that we will probably not grow again next season because they just do not grow as large as we would like and they take ages to harvest.   Many are small but are tasty.
Beautiful greens:  Red Russian Kale, Lettuces.   Heavy root crops of Carrots, and Purple Globe Top Tuniips.  Butternut Winter Squash and Shallots that have both grown exceptionally well this season.
Many vegetables and fruit are available for bulk order through the online CSA Marketplace.  Coffee, Organic Dark Chocolate, Maple Syrup and Honey available as well.  With only a couple of deliveries left it is a good idea to order soon for holiday gift giving.
I have posted a photo of our 2015 Farm Crew on the farm website Farm News page:  https://www.stoneledge.farm/on-the-farm/farm-blog.  Take a look.
Enjoy the bountiful harvest.
