This week Whipstone Farm is providing a large quantity of garlic for storage and use through the winter. To store, just peel all cloves and pack them in jars with olive oil. Your butternut squash will also keep fresh for many weeks. This week’s tatsoi harvest will be available to the majority of shareholders, but there will be ten or so bunches of bok choy since the tatsoi is slowing down so much. If you have prefer bok choy just let our volunteers know.
I will be sending out an invitation this week for our end of the season potlucks at the Cornville and Sedona distributions on Wednesday, October 10th. If you normally collect your share at Willowbrook Farm, please let us know if you will be attending the potluck and at which location so we can be sure to have your share there for you. We really hope that you all can celebrate the end of the season with us!
Early Bird Contracts are available for those of you who want to sign up for next year’s CSA. You can download the contract on our websiteor pick one up at distribution.
Enjoy this rainy day!
