BLASQUEZ GARDENS – Christien Conniff

I do not anticipate a harvest delivery this week.

GREEN THUMB GROWERS – Tom Miller

I do not anticipate a harvest delivery this week, and am planning to have harvested a variety of winter squash for next week.

GUERRA GARDEN – José Antonio Guerra

I will not have a harvest delivery this week and my harvest is finished for this season. It is earlier than expected due to a number of challenging field conditions this year, including sustained heavy rains which damaged most of my late summer harvest. I look forward with joy to growing for you next season and extend heartfelt gratitude for your support of my farm and my family this year.

SIDE SHARES:

CHARIS FARM & HOMESTEAD – Jen Ferinde & Family

Pastured, organically-produced, soy-free, hand-gathered Chicken Eggs $8 per dozen.

Egg production has decreased as usual this time of year, and I will not have surplus eggs for direct purchase this week or for the rest of the season. Egg Shares will be distributed as usual.

GOLDEN ACRES ORCHARD – John Thomson & Mrs. Scottie Thomson

We should have Golden Delicious, York, and Jonathans. Not sure about the other varieties until I mow the orchard. Plenty of apple juice is available and should have some vinegar but have not yet bottled it.

Apple Harvest Update 10-13-20: The apple season is unusual and I am trying to make adjustments. I’ll let you know more soon. We have not started grading apples yet and I have to move around our juice inventory to access the equipment.
