WEEK 13 - Sept 18th, 2013

Thanks to those of you who came out to our first annual Herbal Turtle CSA Potluck!!!  We had a blast and it was great to have the opportunity to talk with you one-on-one and discuss where and how we grow your food.  By the way... the band that played was called "Gravy Train".  Let us know if you would like to book them for anything and we'll get you their contact info! 

Don't forget... We are hosing a mushroom workshop Sunday Sept. 29th!  We are offering a discounted rate for CSA members so if you are interested please let us know!

It feels like fall! The rains finally came (we danced in them for a while) and the temps are dropping. The moisture is great news for the shiitake. Unfortunately the cooler night time temps slowed them down and we did not have enough ready to go around today. We have really been struggling with those shrooms this season!!! We will be including a special treat for those of you with mushroom shares to make up for missing a few weeks. Thanks for your patience.

Katelyn and I are running around like crazy lately! Jenn is back in school and Lynnette just left for Vermont to work for Americorps! We are super excited for her but now it's just Kate and I so if we are a few minutes late for delivery... it's not because we are lazy!

The cool weather crops are looking great. In the next few weeks you will start to see beets, radishes, turnips, carrots, winter squash, kale, peas, beans and cauliflower.

Green Beans
Sweet Peppers (bell and belcanto)
Hot Peppers (banana, hot chili, jalapeno)
Egg Plant

We are counting on 1 more week of tomatoes.  Not sure how many we will get now that the weather has cooled down that but hopefully you will have had your fill by then!  By October we will be done with the warm and into our cool weather crops.

Your Farmers,

Bryan and Katelyn
