As your farmer, I am committed to helping to build our community, providing fresh and healthy food to you and being a responsible steward of the farmland and our ecosystem. The CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model is an innovative way for you to receive fresh vegetables each week and be a part of the Deri Farm community. Healthy vegetables come from healthy soil. Using organic farming methods, I am not just restoring the nutrients in the soil, but improving its quality for our future.

2014 CSA Week 11 share

Fennel and and celery are new items in this week’s share.  In the past I have had a hard time growing fennel since it often bolts.  I delayed the planting a little this season and it seems to have drastically cut down on the number of lost plants.  This week’s share includes:

  • Cucumbers and summer squash – 5 pounds total @ $2 per pound – $10
  • Carrots, onions, and potatoes – 2 pounds total @ $2.50 per pound – $5
  • Peppers (green, colored, hot) and eggplant – 1.5 pounds total @ $3 per pound – $4.50
  • Kale, chard, and beet greens – .8 pounds total @ $3.75 per pound – $3
  • Celery – 1 head weighing on average 1.5 pounds @ $3 per pound – $4.50
  • Fennel – 1 bulb with fronds averaging just over 1 pound @ $4 per pound – $4.25
  • Tomatoes (cherry, heirloom, slicers, paste, and tomatillos) – 4 pounds @ $3 per pound – $12

The share total value this week is $43.25 and the total for the season is $358.50.
