Every year after the end of the official share season, we give CSA members the opportunity to come harvest whatever produce is still available on the farm.
This year's gleaning will take place this weekend, Friday, Nov. 17 through Sunday, Nov. 19. During this time, CSA members can come out to the farm any time of day to pick whatever produce is left.
And what produce is left, you ask? Great question! We've got:
- white lady turnips
- watermelon radishes
- tiny beets
- tiny fennel
- purple top turnips
- spicy mix
- Tokyo bekana
As we've cautioned in the past, gleaning is not for everyone. You'll be picking it yourself, and because the pickings are sometimes slim, it will take a long time to get a significant amount of anything.
If you plan to come we suggest that you:
- Bring a knife to make cutting the salad greens easier
- Bring bags for the vegetables
- Wear sturdy shoes
- Be prepared to walk about a quarter mile to get from your car to the field.
Thanks, everyone! Happy gleaning!
