Fall 2013 Week 9 (Nov 9th)

Apologies go to the Wednesday drop folks.  Thanks for being flexible with David’s off-farm work.  He works hard at all of his jobs — I’m not sure how he gets to the farm work some weeks.  That said, with the weather turning, we seem to have a lot of the same items as last week… More apologies are in order, though not for any lack of effort by the farmer or his staff.  The hail storm back in August (September?) really did a number on some of the crops that should have been coming ripe in the last month.  The winter squash suffered even more than the summer squash, the orchard was devastated (pears, apples, Asian pears, peaches, plums – all gone), we never saw any melons, the tomatoes were a bruised mess.  This is part of what CSA holds dear — supporting the farm in the gamble against the elements and generally reaping the benefit.  Thank you for generally being a positive bunch about this.
