GREENS:

Spinach, baby lettuce mix, baby arugula, head lettuces, kale (various types), Swiss chard, bok choy, tatsoi, and a few others for variety

The really neat thing about greens grown in cool weather is that they taste extra-sweet. This is definitely the prime growing season for beautiful and very delicious salad greens and cooking greens!

Other possibilities, if there's enough interest for them: pea shoots, sunflower shoots, microgreens.

** The fall and winter produce will be available for pickup at the farm on Saturday mornings, or by appointment. Produce will also be taken to St. Thomas. Get in touch if you'd like more details!

Instead of a season-long "share" / CSA, we're switching to monthly time segments (or, it's always available for weekly pickup / orders).
