Week 20 - Winter Luxury Pumpkins
We started the season off late with 4 feet of snow in February, and now our season is trying to end early. We woke up on Tuesday morning to an unexpected frost which killed off the rest of our zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant, and ground cherries. It also stunted the growth of many of our other crops. We're doing our best to recover and will continue to provide you with all of the delicious local veggies that we can and we thank you all for your continued commitment to supporting your local farmers! 4 weeks left in the CSA season!
