Dear CSA Member,
We hope you enjoyed this first week's harvest and the idea of the boxed shares.
Here on the farm, we have one week of boxing CSA shares under our belt as we adjust to the new system of the boxed shares. Along with that, we have been planting fall crops such as spinach, sweet potatoes, kale, and more. Yesterday we were lucky enough to have a rainstorm and the plants are just soaking it up!
Thursdays are the farmer's day of rest and we were very thankful to enjoy the much-needed rain yesterday morning.
Candice for Everyone at Stoneledge Farm
