2014 CSA Shares

What is my share of the harvest?

The weekly harvest share includes an assortment of at least 5-6 different items in each share.

The share sizes and share variety will vary throughout the season due to growing conditions and the weather.

A full share is designed for a couple who eats fresh produce daily, or a larger family who incorporates vegetables into their diet several days a week.  It will be about twice the size of the small share.  A small share is designed for a couple, a couple with young children, or a family that is just beginning to incorporate fresh vegetables into their daily diet.  Below are some specific amounts that will be included in the small share when these items are in full season:

  1. •Corn, 6 ears
  2. •Beans, 1 pound
  3. •Tomatoes, 2 pounds
  4. •Potatoes, 1 quart (about 2 pounds)
  5. •Lettuce, 1 head
  6. •Cucumber, 1
  7. •Squash & Zucchini, 2 each
  8. •Eggplant, 1
  9. •Cabbage, 1 small head
  10. •Beets, 4 roots and greens
  11. •Onions, 2
  12. •Winter squash, 1  (pumpkin, Hubbard, Red-Kuri)
  13. •Herbs, small bouquets of various herbs
  14. •Sweet Peppers, 2
  15. •Hot peppers, 2-3

As our previous members can tell you, each share consists of a very nice variety of produce not just a large amount of one or two items.

Second Season 2013

Musque du Provence

Musque du Provence

This year we are going to have a second season!  Some members have already subscribed and are looking forward to fall/winter produce.  We hope to have boxes through November and maybe even December!  Our goal is to have a generous Holiday dinner box!!  The high tunnel is new so we only can anticipate what will happen this year, although reading other’s experiences with a high tunnel, December produce is not unreasonable!

We have already planted Yukon Gold  and Russian Fingerling potatoes, Green and Yellow Acorn squash, Waltham Butternut squash, more summer squash (we are being brave), peas, more beans, leeks, onions, several varieties of lettuce, salsify (a root vegetable that tastes like oyster), beets, turnips, and we have cabbage, kale, brocolli, brussel sprouts, garlic, and shallots, seeded or ready to seed!

Beyond the fall/winter vegetables we are seeing a comeback of cucumbers, summer squash, and some tomatoes after the onslaught of aphids!  Oh, I do not like those sticky aphids!

Rosemary Skewers

Nice presentation!  The aroma of the rosemary permeates the vegetables.  You could add eggplant, peppers, lamb, chicken, beef, anything!  You are only limited by your pantry!
