Happy Chinese New Year and Week 10 of the Winter CSA!
We hope you have enjoyed these past 10 weeks of local, organic produce. The (sold out) Spring season begins next week. If you missed signing up for Spring, we still have Summer CSA shares available.
It is our pleasure to share this week’s rainbow of delectable produce. We have purchased some additional USDA certified organic root crops from our friends at Even’ Star Farms in Lexington Park, MD, who grew the ‘China Rose’ radishes in your share. Your mushrooms were grown by Mother Earth Mushroom Farm in Landenberg, PA. Everything else was grown by us in the greenhouse or garden. This time of year it helps to be part of a vibrant local food shed, when the weather can not always be relied on to provide enough sunshine and warmth for our veggies!
That being said, we are very excited that the weather is looking milder in the coming weeks. It means we can rely less on auxiliary heat in the greenhouses, and vegetable regeneration will be more vigorous. Sunshine is an amazing resource! We plan to soak it up in the coming days, and hope you find some time to do the same. Thank you for being part of our community supported agriculture!
