Each week your Fall CSA share will reflect an average $26.50 value of winter vegetables. What sort of veggies can we grow in the fall and winter, you ask? Lots of root veggies (carrots, beets, turnips, radishes, rutabaga), winter squash (Red Kurt, Butternut, Acorn, Sweet Dumpling, Spaghetti, etc), leeks and scallions, hardy herbs like cilantro, winter greens like arugula, spinach, mizuna and hardy lettuces, and winter brassicas like baby Pac Choi and Tat Soi, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, collards and kale. Be aware that diversity can drop off a bit in the fall months, but we will do our very best to include plenty of different vegetables each week (don’t worry, we promise you won’t end up with mountains of kale!)
