2012 CSA Newsletter – Week 10 & 11

The Farmers Update

I don’t have time for a long update, as you can probably tell how late this email is. So, i’ve loaded up some photos with captions below to give you a visual update.

We have around 6/7 weeks left (cb/gunnison/marble customers will get a double final box the weekend of oct. 6th, farm pickup customers your last box will be friday oct. 12th). over the next few weeks you will see the number of different items in your box decrease, but we will make up for some of that with weight – lots of tomatoes, potatoes, onions and soon squash. We also have a small corn crop that should come in this week. I hope you have been enjoying the season, thanks for your support!
