Yacee – will be lost for the first couple of weeks without all of her buddies!!!  She loves her weekly hugs from all friends!!!!  Thanks for making it another great year and we hope you have a blessed holiday season with your family and friends!!!  You all feel like family to me – and even though you don’t see Paul as much as you see me – the both of us will miss seeing you!
This week half shares will receive 5 items and full shares will receive 10 items!

Week #20

Can you believe it – we have this week and next week and then our CSA is done for the season!!  It has gone really fast – and this weather doesn’t even feel like Fall weather!  It is looking like this week we might start heading into the cooler temperatures and rainy weather!!
This was, by far, the busiest week we have had in a long time on the farm!  Monday they were calling for frost – we were planning on picking up most of the winter squash on Wednesday when we had a big crew in – not so much!  Monday was go time – it was just Paul, myself and 2 employees and one was for only a half day – we picked up over 500 bushel of squash!!
We had over 300 bushel of spaghetti squash picked up by lunch and then over 200 bushel of butternut squash after lunch!  My ham strings were singing that day!(who needs a membership to a gym!!)
Then a bunch of Wegmans were screaming for pumpkins – so most of my time Wednesday – Friday was on the road delivering pumpkins to the stores!!  We have always said, “SELL IT OR SMELL IT!!”  And I would much rather sell it!!
This was just the load for one day of delivering!!!
This week will still be busy with pumpkins – one last push – but we really need to focus our attention to getting the rest of the winter squash harvested and start digging potatoes!!!
This week full shares will receive 10 tickets and half shares will receive 5 tickets.
Available this week will be…………..

This tastes a lot like cauliflower with a bit of a nutty flavor!

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

logo
 

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!!
