This is a reminder that this week’s delivery on 10/23 will be our last delivery until November 13th as we are taking a 2 week vacation from harvesting and packing shares!!!
Many of you may have seen this article in the news titled, “Stunning Survey Reveals Quarter Of Americans Have Never Eaten Vegetables”. Of those who do eat vegetables, the average person only includes veggies in a third of their meals. We’re thankful that you subscribers aren’t part of that statistic or we wouldn’t be able to sell all the vegetables that we’ve so carefully grown. The top 5 vegetables that the survey respondents consume are: corn, potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, onions and green beans. Of those top 5, carrots are the only one of those we didn’t have in the online store yet this season, but we’re planning to harvest some for our November 23rd delivery!!! The least favorite vegetables were: turnips, beets, radishes and brussel sprouts. Since y’all CSA Subscribers are not representative of those who responded to this survey, we hope you’ll love the radishes and turnips in your share this week. Consider roasting them because they are so tasty tossed in olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper then roasted until tender.
Your Farmers (and cleaning staff),
Carl and Julie
