CSA Harvest Week #20

Hello our CSA members,
Hope you enjoyed recent 'unusual' warm and sunny days. Weather seems back on track of 'usual' fall days now and I'm half sad and half happy to witness the global warming v. longer warm days (I need layers and layers for cold season).

Our crops are doing great in both conditions and we are happy to post this week's harvest.

Head Lettuce
White Radish
Purple Top Turnips
Red Russian Kale
Pak Choy
Kohl Rabi

We had insane marathon of dinner parties last weekend so have very limited eggs available today. However as time goes, our chickens will produce more and more and we will have lots of surplus for all of you.

I'm sure you all received our newsletter, but here's the information about this Sunday's brunch at the Medici in Normal. Our chefs are preparing 6 course brunch (little lighter than our dinner party menus) from 11am till 12:30. Price is $50 per person and the profit goes to non-profit organization The Land Connection to help and guide farmers to start organic/sustainable farm. Tickets are sold at the Garlic Press, TLC website ( Or let us know then we can get it for you.

Hope you have a great afternoon and look forward to seeing you soon!

CSA Pick Up #19

Hello everyone! Fall is here and I guess the Indian Summer is right behind it. We were able to save a good amount of the summer crops by covering them with some temporary hoop houses. Because of this you will be able to expect a few summer vegetables for the coming weeks.

Today in your share:

Pak Choi
Chinese Cabbage
Fall Salad Mix (Mainly oak-leaf and red-sails)
Big Bunch of Basil (Enjoy it while it last, maybe the last week)

This is week 19 so that means there are only three pick ups left. So enjoy the fresh, local produce while you can. Also, be sure to mark your calendars for the CSA member pig roast on October 24th. We would also like to announce that our CSA members will have first dibs on our amazing pastured eggs. They will be available for purchase at next weeks CSA pick up. Supplies are limited so they will be sold on a first come basis.

Enjoy the weather and healthy food.
