Flushing CSA (Week 23) Update!

A little less variety this week due to the freezing temperatures forecast; 3 days of veggies had to be picked in one day. But it will all be made up in next week’s share.

A quick note on this week’s share…due to the freezing temperatures forecast for mid-week, we’ve had to harvest for 3 days of deliveries in one day. GO FARM TEAM! That means that the quantity of this week’s share has been slighly reduced. But it’s all coming to you next week, so get ready! Next week’s final share box will be FULL of delicious goodies for your Thanksgiving holiday table and beyond. All of these veggies will last for weeks (or even months) if stored properly. So please pay attention to the storage notes. See you next week for our final share of the season. 😦
