CSA Week 21

This has certainly been an upside down week. We sincerely hope everyone is safe and well.

The farm was spared any damage by Sandy, which was more of a blustery tropical storm than a hurricane by the time it reached here. Our biggest worry was damage to our greenhouses. The storm, however, did trip us up in terms of our ability to harvest for this week's CSA distribution. So it's not our strongest share.

*We have decided not to distribute fruit for this week seeing that it's possible many of our members will not be able to pick up their shares for lack of public transportation or electricity. We'd rather reserve the balance of the fruit share for next week, which is the last week of the CSA season.

We send our well wishes to everyone in the city and NJ as the area recoups.
