This is the second to last box for the regular season share. For Wednesday pick-ups, next Wednesday, October 5 will be the last box. For Saturday pick-ups, Saturday, October 8 will be the last box. Those of you who bought the extended share will just carry on for 5 more weeks.
Shares this week include: 4 pounds of Covington Sweet Potatoes, 1 pound of kale, 1 pound of green string beans (need strings pulled off), and 1 pound of yellow onions.
Yes, there are a lot of sweet potatoes in your share. They will keep for months. And they will get sweeter with time. So, no hurry to eat them. And, I know you've been getting a lot of onions. These will keep also for months. Keep them in a cloth bag or no bag at all in your refrigerator drawer.
We are having a difficult September in terms of crop diversity. It has been really hot and REALLY dry. Many of the things we planted for this month have died, done poorly, or succumbed to disease...I know excuses, excuses. But true ones. Sorry your boxes have been a little redundant and this weeks is only 4 different items.
We did get a much needed rain Monday night that has made the future look bright again. It was nice splashing around in muddy paths harvesting yesterday.
