Flushing CSA (Week 10): Update!

We want to thank everyone for their patience and cooperation in having to re-schedule the  pickup to Friday night due to an issue with the farm’s truck.And a shout out to Flushing Town Hall and caretaker Ron for being able to accommodate the last minute change. Fortunately for all, the farm’s driver and veggies/fruit were fine and everyone was able to get their produce.


More corn this week! And zucchini and cucumbers make a re-appearance. As we are now in late summer, we might get sungold cherry tomatoes, eggplant, and broccoli (in rotation) – so either this week or next.


Our VolunteersThank you to last week’s volunteers: Judy S. and Eustacia. We appreciate your being able to re-schedule your commitment to Friday evening. This week’s volunteers are: Nora and Jillian.
