A Little Note

Sometimes we get little notes from Rue and Susan, the two Englishers  that live by Cedarmore and help with the CSA.

  John and Anna wanted me to let everyone know how thankful they are for all of the CSA members and the location hosts. The fields are planted in cover crops for the winter. The greenhouses are closed up until February when they will have seedlings started in them and things have finally slowed down a little bit on the farm. Anna said she will be adding a few items to the canned good list and they will be growing a few new veggies this year including yellow tomatoes, possibly orange ones too, spinach, more purple and yellow beans which we had briefly this summer, arugula and possibly more to come. We are hoping for a more productive maple syrup season this winter. They had wanted to run a special on it this fall but did not have enough to do it. Also, I wanted to thank you for supporting them. They couldn’t have tried any harder this year to make it the best experience possible for everyone. I have really enjoyed doing the deliveries as well as communicating with all of you. I have had a great time talking to the hosts and the members that I have met this year. I will miss it this winter but I am really looking forward to starting up again next spring. I hope you all have an awesome winter and very
Blessed Holidays.

Last Box For The Season

As John and Anna say, 'it is time for them to hang up their tools for the 2016 CSA season.  Now they will be able to catch up on all the things around the farm that have been on the back burner.  A little bit of a well deserved rest.

They have really enjoyed packing the boxes this season and hope that you will consider returning next year.  And maybe even talking up the CSA to your neighbors and friend for next year.  The 2017 sign-ups will be coming out between Christmas and the New Year.
