Dear CSA Member,
New week, same weather. I think if you were lucky enough to be on vacation, it would be ideal. There may be showers on Sunday. Time will tell.
This years’ garlic harvest is in the barn and hanging to cure and dry. It looks like some of the best garlic we have grown. We were uncertain how the warm winter would treat the garlic bulbs, but so far, the bulbs look wonderful.
The garlic will now hang and cure in the barn for the next couple of months. The outer cover will become dry and the cloves will break apart easily. At least one third of the bulbs will be saved for seed for next year. If you come to the Farm Festival in September, you will be able to see how we hang and dry the garlic. The annual Farm Festival is the second Saturday in September, the 8th. Mark your calendars and we hope you will be able to make the trip.
We are still taking Market Place orders online so if you would like to order coffee, honey, maple, preserves, sauce and salsa, please log in and place your order. It will be delivered with the CSA shares.
A special thank you to the members that made the trip to the farm this last Friday and helped harvest garlic: Kristen, Anne,Kathy and Alan. It was a hot and humid day, but everyone held tough and were a great help.
I do try to post photos of new vegetables on the farm Face Book page by Sunday. So far I have each week. Look for them this Sunday as well.
Enjoy the vegetables,
Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
