2011 CSA Newsletter – Weeks 14-16/17 – When will you stop giving me all this produce?

The 2011 Harvest Season Ends Soon!

I hope you have all enjoyed the abundance this summer. While we got off to a late start, most  crops still produced an abundant supply for the CSA boxes.

Here are the final pickup/delivery dates –

Crested Butte – last delivery Sunday October 9th – this will be a big delivery, watch for items outside the box like pumpkins!
Marble & Gunnison – last pickup Saturday October 8th – – this will be a big delivery, watch for items outside the box like pumpkins!
Farm pickup  – last pickup Friday October 14th

The farm has slowed its output and the pace of work has slowed as well. Fall project loom – uncompleted spring projects, thinning the berries, discing the fields and planting cover crops and more await as the harvest winds down. Send me an email about the season – what did you like or feel overwhelmed by.
