Joshua and Johanna

Meet the drivers that make sure your boxes make it from the farm to the pick-up house location.

I think she is half monkey.  Each week Johanna climbs up the truck and get the boxes out of the top of the van.

Her brother, the boss (he, he) unloads and rearranges the van at every drop off location.  I don't know how they keep it all straight.

She's showing off her by lifting them two at a time.

Joshua and Johanna are a fun dynamic duo  They get the job done and then they are off to a different drop-off location.

Time Flew By

To day marks the final week of the2015 CSA season at Cedarmore.

Anna writes...Seasons ebb by on wings of time.  Autumn gracefully bows out as cold, blustery north winds whistle under the eaves.  Cozy, warm winter fires burning keep us toasty warm!  Time to bundle up.  Ere long spring will softly breeze in.....

This is the last week and final week of the 2015 season.  Anna and John have taken great pride in producing and sharing the fruits of their labor with us every week in our boxes.  Over all they have  good feeling about his season.  They did have a few crops fails like carrots, Swiss chard, and sweet potatoes.  The weather may have been a big factor in that.  There were some crops that did exceptionally well like Chinese cabbage, spicy greens, green beans, potatoes, and radishes.

This week you will find a canned good added to your box free of charge to help fill them up.  Enjoy!

There are some hidden surprises under the lettuce.

We thank each of you for being apart of the 2015 CSA .  Hopefully you will return next season.  And maybe tell a few friends about your experience so they might consider joining also.  Sign-up sheets for the 2016 season will be coming out between Christmas and New Years.

Still Seeing Beautiful Boxes

Anna says there is still plenty of lettuce in the greenhouse so we will probably see it in the last box next week.  They are looking forward to the snow coming.  I asked Anna what she will do after the CSA season comes to an end.  She says that will be the time that she has to catch up on her sewing and all the other things she has had to put off.
