A Message from Rachael:

The weather is changing. It's been a lovely summer for spending time near water, but not everyone (including farmers) have not been so lucky. These cooler temperatures and that rain should bring some fall crops like lettuce back, but the farmers are hedging their bets if you don;t see many on the order form. It's been a hard year!

The winter squash are starting to be ready. Have you been hankering for spaghetti squash, delicata (also known as Sweet Potato Squash), acorn or any of the other amazing squash we have available?

Things to look for:
  • Green Table Foods on the order this week! Their products have long dates, so you can stock your fridge!
  • Leeks from Edward and Selema Martin! We've been waiting for these
  • Fountain Grass - a lovely purple colour. I love two at the entrance to my home!
  • Edamame - fresh from Brenda K!
Some community events of note:
