Week #19 with only 2 weeks to go!!

Can you still believe how nice the weather is?  It’s amazing for October to be so nice – it only makes me wonder if it is this nice now what will this winter be like!!!!!
The nicer weather has speeded up some of our crops – for example – the cauliflower we are picking now was meant for the first week of November – so once this batch of cauliflower is done we won’t have any more for November!!
I guess we should just be thankful that we haven’t had a really bad killing frost yet!!!  This week still looks pretty nice!!
This week full shares will receive 10 items and half shares will receive 5 items!!

CSA – Week #17

 

Can you believe how hot it was this week – that was crazy!!!!  Those that came on Tuesday I had the air conditioning running in the CSA building and on Thursday the doors were open and it was cold!!  Only in WNY can we almost experience all 4 seasons in one week!!!!
So, this was just a regular week – and I am going to share with you what we do besides get ready for CSA – we sell our Produce to Tops in Batavia and LeRoy – we also sell to Wegmans in Buffalo and we sell to the food hub in Eden Valley – plus go to the Farmer’s Market in East Aurora on Saturdays!  The list that follows is what we picked, washed, packed and delivered to just Tops, Wegmans and the Food Hub – it does NOT include what we picked for CSA for 2 days and market –
Here goes:
52 bushel of Spaghetti Squash, 33 bushel of Butternut, 20 bushel of Acorn Squash, 26 bushel of Pie Pumpkins, 73 bushel of Honey Nut Squash, 115 bushel of Delicata Squash, 2 bushel of Carnival Squash, 9 bins of pumpkins, 182 heads of Orange Cauliflower, 252 heads of purple cauliflower, 1 box of poblano peppers, 7 boxes of Jalapeno’s, 5 boxes of Cubanelle’s, 12 boxes of yellow hot peppers, 7 boxes of zucchini, 3 boxes of summer squash, 11 cases of sweet corn and14 bushel of bell peppers!!  And on average there were only 4 of us doing all the work – with Paul and I being 2 of them – so you can see quite a bit goes on here on the farm on a weekly basis – and this week we picked most of this in almost 90 degree weather!  I have no problem sleeping at night – in fact – I actually get excited to go to bed at night!!!  Who knows what this week will bring and what all we will be picking!!!
I do know that Lacee loves peppers – the picture below is what is usually left of a pepper that Lacee will eat – pretty smart dog to eat all of the pepper except the seeds!!

CSA – Week #15

***PLEASE BRING MORE PLASTIC BAGS – THE PILE IS JUST ABOUT GONE SO I REALLY COULD USE SOME MORE THIS WEEK!!  THANKS!!****
It is really starting to look like fall – of course, you wouldn’t notice it by the temperatures that we have been having – it’s been beautiful out!
We go to market in East Aurora on Saturday’s and I really enjoy the ride home – the leaves on the trees along 20A and Rt. 77 are so beautiful – Fall is my favorite time of the year!
Speaking of fall – that usually means harvest time – now you know we don’t have tomatoes – but boy do we have some butternut squash to pick up……….
 
We will pretty much be able to set a crate down and not even have to move it and it will be FULL!!!  So this week Butternut will be added to you choices!  The Butternut I will be putting out is going to be not HUGE but good size!  Wegmans and Tops don’t like to get big squashes in their boxes so we are going to share them with you – it must be all that rain we have had!!
This week your amounts will be increasing – so FULL SHARES will receive 10 items and HALF SHARES will receive 5 items.  It will stay like this until the last week.  For those that have asked your last day will be:  Tuesday – October 31st
Drop off boxes at the gym will be Wednesday November 1st
Thursday – November 2nd and pick ups on Saturday at the East Aurora Farmers market will be Saturday, November 4th.

CSA – Week #14

Good Afternoon –
Sorry I am late getting this out – Paul and I had deliveries to do this morning and of course I had to watch opening day of the BILLS BEAT THE JETS!!!  Now the Bills are #1 in the AFC EAST – I know it may only last 1 week but I am going to enjoy it for the entire week!!!
I also want to throw out there that I hope all of you who have family in Florida that all are safe and in safe places!!!  Our family just went thru this a couple of weeks ago because my brother Tom lives in Corpus Christi, Texas – as when they were first predicting the Harvey Storm he was right where the eye of the storm was headed!!  He managed much better than Houston did – he lost power for about a week, lost a few shingles, a little bit of siding and a a few limbs fell – but no flooding and his house was fine!!  So, we are keeping all of those in harms way in Florida in our prayers and hoping that your family or friends or both are safe and all will be good!
Can you believe it is time for pumpkins?  Well, it is if you want it to be time!  We are passing an awesome deal on to our CSA members!
 
Big, really big pumpkins that would normally sell for $8 – $10 retail you can buy them for $5 – all day everyday one or hundred – always $5!  I will have some out on both Tuesday and Thursday if you want any!!
This week half shares will receive 4 items and full shares will receive 8 items and available this week will be……
***New this week***Carnival Squash – tastes just like acorn squash but sweeter!!
 
***New this Week*** Yummy Ya – Ya Peppers – we planted a new variety of Yummy’s this year that will also include red and yellow yummy’s along with the orange – very sweet very few seeds – great for school/work lunches!!

Hope to see all of you on either Tuesday or Thursday this week between 2-6 p.m.
And here is my cute dog pictures for the week!!  I think Lacee will actually pose when I go to take a picture.  She got a haircut this week – and her tail looks like a lion – it’s so cute!
 

 

CSA – Lucky Week #13

It sure does feel like Fall with the temperatures we have had the past few days!  With that being said we are slowly switching into our Fall crops and Fall harvest – we have already delivered a few loads to Wegmans of pumpkins and winter squash already – it doesn’t seem possible that summer is behind us and changing temperatures and leaves are just ahead!!
It’s kind of sad when the pumpkins were ready before the cantaloupes were!  But – you are all in for a treat this week because our snack melons are ready – Paul and I have sampled quite a few to make sure they were just right for all of you!!  And we can say that they are absolutely delicious!!
We have started topping the Brussels Sprouts – why you ask?  We snap the very top off of the Brussels Sprouts and then this enables the entire stalk to fill in evenly – it’s no fun getting really big sprouts at the top and itty bitty ones at the bottom!  Much like in the spring when we snap the scapes off the garlic!
This week full shares will be given 8 tickets and half shares will be given 8.
Available this week will be………………….
***New this week*** Snack Melons (not as big as a regular melon but much sweeter!!)
***New this week*** Sweet Cheese Peppers (a snack pepper with lots of sweetness)
***New this week*** Mini Bell Peppers (another snack pepper with lots of sweetness inside – great for school lunches)
Sweet Corn is back on the list again!
Beans
Red Potatoes
Cherry and Heirloom Tomatoes
Bell Peppers
Purple and Yellow Bell Peppers
Kale
Sweet Banana Peppers
Cubanelle Peppers
Green Cabbage
Red Cabbage
Savoy Cabbage
Yellow Hot Peppers
Green Hot Peppers
Jalapeno’s
Poblano Peppers
Garlic
Hope to see all of you on either Tuesday or Thursday this week between 2-6 p.m.
I always enjoy leaving you with a picture of one of the dogs but I have a couple this week – as you know Lacee loves to see all the kids and eat whatever they may drop – a couple of weeks ago it was Cherry Tomatoes with Addy and this week Little Grayson (almost a year old) got a big kick out of sharing a few green beans with Lacee!
 
How cute are they!!!
And while Paul was working out in the Brussels Sprouts this week Lacee just sat there waiting to get her picture taken……..
She is such a ham!!!
Hope you all have a great week!!!  Happy Labor Day and Happy back to school for all the teachers and students!!
Gail
