It’s time to sign up for the 2012 CSA! After lots of enthusiasm about all the different CSA options last season, we’re offering them all again: main season Whole Shares & Half Shares, flexible Farmstand CSA cards, beautiful bouquets in the Flower CSA, and hearty comfort food in the Winter CSA. Plus we’ll be back in Dorchester for the Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmers Market CSA. Download a sign up sheet here!
This season we’ve added another pickup day at the farmstand–Thursday–for a total of four options: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. Again this year the main season CSA (Whole Shares & Half Shares) will run for 24 weeks and start in mid-May. The Whole Shares & Half Shares will finish up the last week of October, and then the Winter Share begins the first week of November with delicious winter squash, sweet root vegetables, and crisp winter lettuce. The 8-week long Winter Share finishes up the 3rd week in December.
The flexible Farmstand CSA is a debit card loaded with $400 to use all season long for any item–vegetable, fruit, honey, flowers, baked treats–at the farmstand. Ten weeks of fresh, fragrant, farm-grown flowers in hand-tied bouquets starts with pastel snapdragons in early July and runs through colorful dahlia season in September.
During these short, frosty January days we’ve been dreaming about ripe, juicy tomatoes, sweet and buttery corn, delicious early spring broccoli, and tender and sweet spring onions. But as mouthwatering as those daydreams are, we haven’t just been dreaming. We’ve finished up taking inventory of our seed stocks and started work on crop planning and seed ordering for the upcoming season. Soon we’ll be getting large boxes full of colorful seed packets delivered to the front porch and we’ll be one more step closer to enjoying a ripe and juicy melon on a bright, sunny August afternoon.
