2013 CSA: Week 8
I know, I know. I'm LATE. A week late. But better late than never, right? I had too much stuff going on this past week, but at any rate, here's what I got in the box:
- A leek
- Wild celery
- Two heads of lettuce
- One HUGE purple cabbage
- Red potatoes
- Squash (yellow and green globe)
Due to the incredible amounts of rainfall we've been experiencing here in East Tennessee, our CSA is going on a two-week hiatus, so we won't be picking up again until August 10. During this time, our friends at the Colvin Family Farm are going to focus on getting everything back in order and are extending the CSA season by two weeks into the fall.
Here's a great article explaining how the weather has affected our local farms: "Heavy rainfall takes toll on area crops."
