On Friday, I will watch my son Caleb become a sailor in Great Lakes Illionois, and the rest of the week we are getting our winter veggies ready to grow, canning and making some wonderful lotions and other delectables, so I decided to invite our CSA members out to help themselves for the week.
Here’s the scoop on U pick week-
You can come to the farm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 8am-8pm.
You can come to the farm Thursday , Friday and Saturday 8am-11am.
What we have to pick-
Tomatoes, Peppers, Beans, Pie Pumpkins, Winter Squash, Melons, Okra, Eggplant, Swiss Chard, Herbs, Ground Cherries, Tomatillos, Apples for apple sauce or apple butter, Maybe some grapes- they are getting close.
You may take what you will use, and if you want to can, or freeze anything, you may have use of the kitchen on the farm for that purpose. I have a 6 burner stove that helps get the job done efficiently.
I really look forward to seeing everyone this week!
BTW if you are not able to stay to pick, we will have items ready for you to pick up, just ask .
