Summer CSA members will be picking up their last summer share next week. The first frost has come and gone, meaning it will be a rare sight to find green beans, tomatoes, and eggplant. Fall and winter harvests are making their first appearances, and the CSA has been hard at work getting ready for the transition of the season. In these last 26 weeks, the Coop has sent out over 400 types of fruits and vegetables!!! Some of the best-yielding crops of summer included: tomatoes, kale, peppers, asparagus, green beans, green zucchini, picking cucumbers, broccoli, and eggplant! The hot weather in August really helped with the nightshade crops (peppers, tomatoes, eggplant) as well as watermelon. One farmer was able to sustain kale throughout the entire year!
We wanted to say thank you to all our dedicated members! This summer has been an amazing year for the Coop, and we had our highest participation in the CSA! We couldn’t be more grateful! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Here’s some highlights from the last half of summer CSA, directly from members:
