15th CSA Week

October 1st??? How did that happen??  This season has flown by and its hard to believe we only have three weeks left to the 2013 CSA season.  Despite the dry weather this summer it truly has been a pretty great growing season.  Our onions, leeks, carrots, parsnips, tomatoes, peppers, greens and so many others thrived this year.  The broccoli and cauliflower suffered from the dry weather but the bumper crop in other areas sure makes up for the less than stellar broccoli/cauliflower crop.  The recent patch we've been harvesting the last two weeks has been much better which is great.

This weeks large share has coloured carrots, lettuce mix, spinach, peppers, tomatoes (2.5lb), winter squash, garlic, broccoli, brussel sprout tops, parsnips, and onions.  The grab box has lettuce heads, swiss chard, leeks, hot peppers, celery, salad turnips, beets, zucchini, cabbage, green onions, kale, collards, dill, cilantro, sage, parsley and summer savoury!!  Wow, now that's selection.

Parsnip I found this week. 

Beautiful lettuce mix
 This past Sunday I attended farm day in the city with three other farmers.  We had a great day and the crowds were amazing.  I am already planning and looking forward to next year.  An event not to be missed!!!

The boys sure love their Grampy!!  That is a great dirt pile by the way :)
