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.

CSA Share 2014 – Week 14

A few new items this week mark the start of the fall share: winter squash, baby leeks, and sage.  As the nights are getting cooler (down to almost freezing a couple nights ago and it seems likely there may be a frost tomorrow night), the season really is wrapping up for the CSA.  The share this week included:

  • Choose 2 from winter squash:  acorn, spaghetti, carnival and 1 from: sunshine or red kuri - 2 at average 1.7# + 2.5# = 5.9 pounds total @ $1.50 per pound –  ~ $8.50
  • Potatoes (choice of varieties including fingerling) – 3 pounds @ $2 – $6
  • Onions (red, yellow) – 1.5 pounds @ $2.50 – $4.50
  • Baby leeks – 6 count – $2
  • Sage – choose 8 sprigs – $2
  • Greens (choice of kale, chard, beet greens) – .75 pounds @ $4 – $4
  • The “full plate” for this week includes: peppers, eggplant, a small number of cucumbers, and tomatoes – 6 pounds @ $3 – $18

The share value for this week is $44.  The total for the season is $495.25.  The plan is to take next week to do some work around the farm and not harvest, then do a share week.  So, there won’t be a CSA distribution.  Depending on when a real frost comes, I may do another work week with no CSA distribution again followed by the final CSA.  This will also give a chance for CSA members to chew away at their backlog of veggies!
