Or maybe we should just call it "Bean Season?" We're up to our ears in beans right now - so how about buying a few extras to put in the freezer for the winter months? Dilly beans, anyone? We've been picking beans off of the more prolific stand of beans I've ever seen. A new planting is ready to pick this week, and the previous planting is still going strong. Beans are on sale this week at 2 lbs/$5 or 5lbs/$10. Now's your chance, if no one wants them this week, we will just turn under the older planting next week. Beans need to be picked at least twice a week to keep them productive, and beans take way too darn long to pick to end up harvesting far more than we need.
We also have some big beautiful heads of early broccoli this week, and little Hakurei turnips that are so sweet and crisp, our favorite way to eat them is to just munch on them raw like a little apple!
We get quite a few inquiries about a fall and winter CSA program now. We accept new memberships at any time. Please visit our website over here if you are interested in more details.
