Greetings! A little touch of fall in the air and what a relief. We are thankful to have escaped the effects of Hurricane Matthew, praying for all of those that were not so lucky. It was nice to see a lot of the evacuees out and about taking in our wonderful town of Bainbridge and the surrounding communities. They seemed very thankful to have a safe place to be and commented how friendly and welcoming everyone was. Well, ya! you ARE IN THE SOUTH! ;)
The farms are reporting that they are still battleing the white flies and looks like the green beans and cherry tomatoes are going to be a loss. Very bad season, and seems to be the worst white fly situation since anyone can remember, even among the conventional farmers. So, you can expect a shortage of crops, which means an increase in prices at the grocery store. But, you know what? Not an increase for our CSA members.....that's right! Another bonus of belonging to our CSA. You will still keep receiving your fresh organic fruit & veggies each week. Delivered yet! How? Because we are cutting out the miles and time from the farms to your table and cutting out the price that the grocery stores add on!
This week your box will contain Harvest Moon Market's cucumbers, McClellan Organics bell peppers, zucchini & butternut squash. From Florida we have start fruit or Carambola ( eat alone or cut them up and toss in your salad), red leaf lettuce, green cabbage, red or yellow onion, yukon potatoes, red beets, and red plums or apples. All organic!
