WSCSA NEWS AND UPDATES

Hi Members,

We are now taking orders for our November 20 Market Day! 

We're excited to have Lewis Waite Farm and City Saucery meat, fish, dairy, bread, pantry items and tomato sauces available for our November Market Day. Orders and payments are due by November 7th. Pickup will occur at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery on Tuesday, November 20, 2018, between 4-8pm.

Winter 2018-2019 Registration is now open! 

Winter 2018-2019 will continue with Tuesday evening pick-ups from 4pm-8pm in our same location at St. Mark's in the Bowery.

We will have 9 pickups between November and May: Nov 20, Dec 11, Jan 22, Feb 12, March 5, March 26, April 16, May 7, and May 14.

Rather than our typical vegetable share with add-ons, the winter CSA features several "mixed" share types to choose from: Meat share, Lacto-ovo share, and Vegan share. All three shares cost $390. The deadline to sign up and all payments must be received by is November 8. 

To sign up, head over to our website now! 

Please email us at info@washingtonsquarecsa.com if you would like more information. 

Cheers,
The WSCSA Core Committee  


NEWS FROM THE FARM

high tunnel

Good day…I write this after having looked at the 10-day forecast. Not bad: no snow in the forecast and not many below freezing nights (If it holds true). Next week looks pretty nice with some highs in the upper 50s. However not enough light or sun to push things to grow rapidly.

We are still pulling in storage crops from fields as we have been doing the last few weeks. In addition, the guys are bracing the high tunnels with 2x4s to help with snow loads in the winter. You can see a 2 x 4 in the aisle where the guys are harvesting spinach. We are cleaning out high tunnels that and tomatoes and eggplants in them. We are curing the last of the sweet potatoes pulled out of the ground by exposing them to high heat for several days. The second picture shows radishes being harvested from a field covered with row cover. We are also spending a lot of time working on visas for our crew next year. 

Vegetable of the week: Turmeric
Turmeric is a tropical plant with banana like leaves that is related to ginger. Turmeric is used throughout the world to color food mostly. However, the health benefits derived from eating turmeric are debated but there is evidence to support its anti-inflammatory properties if eaten as turmeric and not in tablet or capsule form.

Thank you, 
Norwich Meadows Farm
