ANNOUNCEMENTS 

It's the final week! Today and Saturday are the final pick-up days of the season. Thank you for joining us this year. We'll have info about next year available very soon. We hope you return!

Gleaning begins Nov. 16. 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. During this time, CSA members can come out to the farm any time of day to pick whatever produce is left. More details to come soon, but here's what we expect to have in various quantities:

  • cabbage leaves
  • bok choi (a little rough looking)
  • broccoli raab
  • spicy mix
  • some turnips (past their prime)
  • tiny fennels
  • arugula
  • Tokyo bekana
  • tiny rutabagas
  • small, red radishes

 

The Fall Beef Sale is happening now! Online ordering of grass-fed beef is now available. Questions can be sent to mheller@cbf.org.  

Christmas tree and wreath sales will begin in December, and will be available to both members and non-members. Wreaths and trees from Clagett Farm can be purchased at the farm, in front of the barns (Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Clagett Farm, 11904 Old Marlboro Pike, Upper Marlboro MD 20772) from 12pm - 4pm on the 4 weekends after Thanksgiving: Saturdays and Sundays: Dec. 1-2, 8-9, 15-16, or by appointment (301-627-4662) any other day. An online order form will be coming soon -- we'll email you!

Worth a read! Brighter Bites is one of the location organizations to which Clagett Farm donates produce. They published a great article showcasing the impact that the produce has had on their clients, along with adorable photos. Check it out!

Garlic for Sale! We are still selling garlic, at $5/pound (there's about 14 heads in a pound). Garlic can be purchased at either pick-up location.

 

WHAT'S IN THIS WEEK'S SHARE?

  • 1/4 pound loose garlic cloves
  • Choose 1 head savoy cabbage OR 2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 3/4 pound total combination rutabaga + radishes + peppers
  • 2 pounds greens [options may include kale, collards, lettuce, arugula, Tokyo bekana, spicy mix, tat soi, bok choi)

ON U-PICK THIS WEEK:

  • Herbs: thyme, oregano, sage, mint, garlic chives
  • Flowers: As always, any flowers on the farm can be picked. 


That's it for the week! Enjoy the share! And thank you for a great season.
