With the summer/fall season winding down, not many volunteer shifts remain. If you haven't had a chance to sign up for your volunteer shifts yet, please be sure to do so here. All summer members must complete 2 shifts, and fall members must complete 1 shift.  Please note that failure to fulfill your volunteer requirement will result in a charge of $100 per missed shift.  

Be on the look out for details on our upcoming Market Day (currently planned for 11/20)! Turkeys will be offered! 

Also, don't forget that we're now selling tote bags, perfect for lugging your bountiful share home! They are $15 each and you can pay for them with Venmo, cash, or check.

Cheers,
The WSCSA Core Committee  


NEWS FROM THE FARM

honeynut squashThe inflection point is here. Now that we have had a slight frost, the crew will spend a lot of time tending to the high tunnels of our summer crops to get a few more weeks out of things like tomatoes, beans, eggplants, and peppers. This means a lot of row covering with row covers. Some of the high tunnels will be heated to ward off the frost. We continue to fix doors on high tunnels and prepare them for winter by bracing them with 2x4s and other bracing. Our foreman is plowing sod to get ready for next season to breakdown the grass ahead of planting.

Vegetable of the week: Winter squash; Honey nut. This is a single serving gem of a winter squash with pedigree that gives it the shape of a butternut with sweeter more flavorful flesh. This squash was developed by Cornell University in the MazLabs of our very own resident breeder Dr. Michael Mazourek who can be found at our farm almost every Wednesday during the summer tending to our ongoing breeding experiments

Thanks,

Zaid & Haifa
