CSA Pickup Thursday Cdale and Friday Marion & Thanks for Returning Boxes!

Posted 12/12/2017 3:09pm by Jill Rendleman.

Look for new curly kale, lettuce, potatoes, and more in shares this week.   Happiest of sunny winter days are here!  Now is perfect high tunnel weather for great greens and lettuces.....cold outside but warm inside, no carbon necessary.  At 30 degrees or colder, we leave high tunnels closed to capture the suns warmth to hold temps in tunnels above 40 during the night.  Many of the veggies under the low tunnels are looking pretty ragged from cold days and nights below 30...we have kale, lettuce, mixed lettuce, herbs, spinach and other things coming to eating size in the tunnels now.  With nice sunny days we have been cleaning fall beds up and preparing for spring planting.  Its so nice to be working at 30 degrees instead of 95 degrees!  We found out we have great gas and electric suppliers and good farm insurance last week.  We do have a $1000 deductible, ouch, but they will also pay for our time spent fixing things.  

Here are some pickup notes for the next few weeks....

Thursday & Friday Dec 21st and 22cd.  (young hens frozen for holiday Csa so let me know if you are veggie only and I can substitute)

Thursday & Friday Dec 28th and 29th (times & days same)

Wednesday Jan 3rd (Marion and Cdale pickup both on Wed - times same as normal pickups)

NO CSA Jan 11 or 12th.  We hope members are good with this...bill and I would like to visit friends that week down south.  The  Jan 3rd share and following week we planned to have a larger than normal sized shares to make up for the missed week.   If that doesn't work for you, then TEXT or CALL me and we can talk about other options.  

Thursday and Friday Jan 18th and 19th (back to normal) 

your farmer, Jill
