Summer CSA Week Fourteen

This is our favorite time of year.  The weather is warm, the crops are abundant and we are busy putting away food for the winter. This year is even busier for us though since we are working hard to get our new farm in Dummerston ready to move into and grow at next season.  We are so excited to finally have a permanent location for Full Plate Farm and we have grand plans for the CSA to be bigger and better in the coming seasons.  Right now though we are just trying to get everything set before winter!
 
Our onions are finally cured and ready to eat. We grow several varieties which we choose for their storage quality, but essentially we grow four kinds of onions; Cippolini (flat round Italian variety), Ailsa Craig (huge Spanish style), yellow and red.  Each has a little different flavor and all of them are delicious.
 
Bulk tomatoes are still for sale.  Tomatoes are mixed heirloom (different colors) and red slicers $2.50 lb, with a minimum order of 10 lbs. Please email Laura and put in your order with the amount you'd like and which CSA pick-up you'd like to get them at. First come first serve- we will only have about 20-30 lbs available at each pick-up.
