CSA Week #24 — Golden Earthworm Organic Farm


This is week #24 out of 25 weeks. Next week is our final week of the season.

It’s hard to believe that the season is almost over! The weeks fly by when you’re having fun and up to your ears in non-stop work. We’re looking forward to a nice break from the wild farming life and to spending some much-needed family time together this winter.

FINAL CALL for Christmas Trees. They are gorgeous and so fragrant! We brought some boughs down to decorate the farm shop this weekend and the whole truck smells like the holidays! Get your orders in here.

Watermelon Radish
When sliced, these look like watermelon with their red and green-ringed flesh. Delicious sliced very thinly raw or roasted. There are some growth cracks in these radishes from the heavy rains a few weeks ago. They have more cosmetic damage than usual – sorry! They’re still totally edible and delicious.
