Preservation Vibration

20160621_082445It’s that magical time of year again, when the smell of ‘pumpkin spice’ is literally everywhere, school is almost here, the sweatshirts are unearthed and most importantly, the planting is nearly done. The Edge of Fall.

Now we just sit back and watch it all ripen. Haha! Just kidding. This is the heavy time of year – cabbage, potatoes, winter squash, peppers – the serious stuff. Physically it can be a challenge schlepping around the bulk of the fall harvest, but seeing the volume of food coming out of our humble little fields feels pretty awesome. Even more awesome? Sharing it with you all. Going forward we hope to offer some deals on preserving quantities of our most bountiful crops. WINTER IS COMING, as we like to remind ourselves, and having that salsa in the pantry or pesto in the freezer definitely brightens up a January dinner.

BULK ITEMS AVAILABLE THIS WEEK!!!

TOMATOES: We have romas, and #2 red tomatoes for your canning pleasure. Please note these are not the most beautiful, showroom models – that is why we’re offering them cheaper! They taste just as lovely as their more attractive counterparts – it’s what on the inside that counts, right?

#2 reds or romas … 20 lbs/$20

Please give preference if you have one.

BASIL: This is ‘pesto’ basil, a little buggier than what we try to bring to markets and CSA. $8/lb. We can throw in one of our HUGE bulbs of garlic with each pound for a total of $10 – just add parmesan!

FOR CSA MEMBERS – we MUST have orders in by 8 pm Wednesday in order for bulk items to arrive with your share box.

MARKET CUSTOMERS – we need orders BEFORE YOUR MARKET. We cannot fulfill bulk orders AT the market – we just don’t bring enough to go around!

Best,

Kate, John & Laila
