What’s in the Share and at the Market? Asian pears, more Chanterelles, raspberries, peaches, and our own Watermelon!

Happy almost September! If you are going on Vacation next week or the week after for Labor Day – please hold your shares, or ask me for help. As you can see from this week’s menu, we are segueing into Fall with Butternut Squash, Asian pears and the amazing Concord Grapes (I can hear some of you squealing with glee on the grapes!) And we have the tremendous forest-foraged chanterelles again! 

I am still working on the Fall/Winter subscriptions and will have this up online this week for you with Early Bird specials!  Partial seasons will be available for you if you think you might be moving or otherwise needing more flexibility in your season. Email me with questions. If you have friends who want in, tell them to sign up early as we expect the CSA to fill up quickly like it did last season. 

Here is what we think is in the share -Mark says he knows this will change. Please know that our farmers are having a hard time with the harvest due to weather and labor shortages. We ask for your flexibility with changes. We will try to get these to you but often we don’t know until day of and they don’t always get to me (Suzi). I know last week there were a number of surprises! So thanks again for your patience.
