Please remember to wash your produce, as not all items are table-ready. All food requires additional washing and rinsing before consumption. Thank you!
Fall is just around the corner! Kids are starting back to school next week in some counties and the summer CSA season will end next week here at Cane Creek Farm. We are preparing for planting the crops that will produce late fall and winter right now.
The days have gotten drier, as the almost daily downpours are not lasting as long. The drier conditions have improved the crops we do have in the ground, and allowed us to plant a succession crop of beans, cucumbers and squash. We will try to protect them from the insects with floating row cover. Insects are more of a problem in the late summer season.
Fall season starts August 8/9, two weeks from today. Those of you who enjoy the fall crops of eggplant, peppers, okra, more tomatoes, field peas, garlic, potatoes, onions, butternut squash and greens toward the end of the season are invited to join our community as a shareholder for the fall. You can sign up on line through the website, www.canecreekfarm.net or bring a check by the farm.
Thanks to all of you who have encouraged, appreciated, shared and enjoyed the food this summer season. It has been challenging at times and we appreciate your dedication to supporting our farm and allowing us to continue to produce good, chemical-free, fresh food for our community!
