End of the 2023 Season

Hi everyone, We did it. We’ve made it through a summer full of delicious, locally grown produce. Spring onions, greens, melons, corn, squashes and apples; it really has been a treat. First, some quick housekeeping. We will deliver the shares Sunday morning sometime between 10 am and 12 pm. This is the last share of […]

“Baby” Rainbow Carrots

Hi everyone, Get ready – this newsletter’s a long one. Please bear with me. First, shares will be delivered on Friday. Lisa and I are heading to New York for a friend’s Wedding so there will be a bit of a shift in the schedule. We’ll be targeting to deliver the shares Friday evening, between 5pm […]

*Shares Delivered This Week*

Hi everyone, Get ready – this newsletter’s a long one. Please bear with me. First, all of the shares will be delivered this week. Christine (Tinyshop) will be at The Plant’s Reuse-a-Palooza in Back of the Yards on Sunday so we will not be at our usually location for pick-ups. We’ll aim to deliver all of […]

**No pick-up at Belli’s. Delivery instead**

Hi everyone, We have some sad news to share. Alex, the owner of Belli’s, is planning to move out of the state later this month so the upcoming future for Belli’s is up in the air at the moment. Belli’s is still open and hasn’t announced an exact closing date yet while they seek potential […]

Celery root, kale, and apples

Hi everyone, Lots of tasty stuff in the shares this week. It’s always interesting how the summer is bookended with the same veggies. Similar to the spring, we’ll start to see more leafy greens, radishes, and root vegetables. Keep in mind that the root vegetables, squashes, apples will last for quite a while so don’t […]

We want your feedback!

Hi everyone, It’s really starting to feel like fall now. We’ve been having cool nights and there are winter squashes in the shares (and football is back). I want to thank everyone again for being part of the first season of the CSA Club. Its been very fulfilling for us and we hope that you […]

Peppers, and Patty Pan

Hi everyone, I hope the last couple of weeks have been great. As we cruise through peak season, we are planning and working on a number of preservation projects to build up the Larder and take advantage of the bounty of produce. We’re also brainstorming if/what form the CSA Club might take over the winter […]

Watermelon, corn, and caulilini

Hi everyone, The few cool days between the heat waves have been little tastes of fall. But don’t worry, there is still lots of summer produce left in the season. Farmer Todd reported that cool weather crops were being seeded last week, so we have a few weeks before we start seeing those. He is […]

Summer’s Bounty

Hi everyone, We are coming up to the halfway point in the season. It’s pretty crazy to compare the photos of shares from the beginning of the season to now. The volume of greens has been replaced by a dense array of colors. The bounty of this time of year is truly unmatched. As I […]

Corn, melon, and peppers

We’re fully into summer now. Corn is the poster child of summer, and you can’t find much better corn than what’s grown here in the Midwest. Right now the corn is sweet enough that you could eat it raw if you’re like me and have poor self-control. We hope you all are enjoying the season […]

Eggplant, Carrots, and Coles

At a quarter of the way through the season, we’re fully into summer now. A quick reminder that your next shares won’t be for another 3 weeks, rather than the typical 2 weeks (8/6). Lisa and I will be spending some time in Michigan camping, visiting farms and of course bringing back some fruit to […]

Greens, Broccoli, and Peas

It’s week 3! I hope you’re enjoying everything so far this season. We are fully into the transition of spring to summer, and its noticeable with the shares. There are still greens, but then there’s summer squash, peas, and broccoli which are ushering in those summer flavors. Before you know it, we’ll be at the […]

Greens, Garlic Scapes, and Peas

It’s week 2! I hope you enjoyed the array of veggies from your first share. There are a lot of fun things in the share this week. Quick reminder to bring-with/leave-out the totes with the containers from your previous share. If you have any in use, no problem; we can get them next time. And […]

Summer’s Bounty

Hi everyone, A couple of weeks ago, it felt like everyone was ready to usher in fall, but the recent heat and abundance of summer produce has us feeling like we’re still in the thick of summer. Farmer Todd reported that cool weather crops were being seeded last week, so we have a few weeks […]
