Has it really been 24 weeks since we started this season’s CSA back in May? That’s right this is week 24 the final week of the 2016 Season. At times I feel like it  flew by quickly, but to be honest there are always those times in the middle of the season that I wonder if we are going to make it but make it we did and every season must come to an end. I hope all members have enjoyed this year’s CSA and will plan on signing up next spring (please tell a friend or relative about us). I want to personally thank all of you for supporting our small local farm. As I have said before it’s our CSA members that give us the drive and motivation throughout the season to do what we do.

For those members that took advantage of the vacation week option, your last share will be next week. I or Chip will be confirming with you when you pick your share up this week.

Many have asked if we were going to offer a fall - winter CSA this year. Unfortunately we will not.  At one point I felt like we would be in good shape to do so but the late summer rains and humidity had ill affects on most of our winter storage crops. We will however be at the farmers markets throughout November (outside downtown Bloomington) and also the Bloomington Winter Farmers Market at Harmony School starting the first Saturday of December and running through March. Please drop by and see Chip or Dayton. We will have plenty of the freshest winter greens, carrots, and mushrooms that you have ever eaten. CSA members from this past season will always receive a 10% or more discount on any purchases made at the farmers markets.

In your share this week: Sweet Potatoes, Butternut Squash (see recipe), Blue Potatoes, Radishes, Salad Greens, and Mustard Green Braising Mix.

Thanks again. I hope to see you all at the farmers markets and or next year at CSA time. Jim
