Here we are at week 20 and the final week of the main season CSA. Garlic planting has commenced at the farm with the thanks to several of our CSA members that have been out to help crack bulbs and plant cloves. As of Tuesday afternoon we have 4800 cloves planted and we are aiming for 6000!
A huge "Thank You" from us both to all our CSA member families for your support this year. We hope you have enjoyed the bounty of the last 20 weeks as much as we have growing it for you and your families. Don't forget to fill out your CSA survey. It should only take about 5 minutes to answer the 10 questions and we do appreciate all your feed back on the CSA this year.
Thank you for allowing us to be the farmers that have fed your families this year and we look forward to doing it again next year.
