Carrots and Parsnips for Sale

The winter shares are finished for the season, but there was an over abundance of carrots and parsnips last fall, so there are still plenty for sale. They are keeping well in the root cellar, but as spring warms (it will, I promise), they won’t last. So if anyone out there would like a bulk order of at least 10 lbs let us know.

New egg customers welcome

Hello CSA members, I’m sending out a quick edit to my previous post, egg pick-up will be informal from now until the summer pick-up time, not during Tuesday pick-up hours. There are lots of eggs, so NEW CUSTOMERS are welcome. Contact me at lydiadyck.sunspring@gmail.com for more info and/or to get on the “eggmail” list, the place for all egg updates.

I look forward to hearing from you, stay warm!

Plant Sales!

We are now taking orders for vegetable, herb, and flower seedlings. Other events are coming back (The Herb Fair, and STC Market Day) and we will be at these venues with plants, but the more folks are able to order ahead, the better we can plant accordingly… It means less wasted time potting up and then composting unwanted plants. You can reply to this post or send me an email (saugeenrivercsa@gmail.com) with your name, the kinds and numbers of plants you want. If you wait too long what you want may not be available. There will be a pick-up for your seedling orders at the farm on Saturday May 28 from 8:30am to 4pm. Here is a list of what will be available:

Tomatoes – Red, yellow, or heritage slicers, red or yellow cherries, paste
Peppers – green or red sweet, hot
Eggplant
Tomatillo
Basil – Pesto, sacred, purple
Onion – Red Italian, yellow storage
Zucchini – Green or yellow
Cucumber – slicing or pickling
Winter Squash – Delicata, buttercup, butternut, spaghetti
Pumpkin – Pie or Jack ‘O Lantern
Kale – Tuscan or curly
Cabbage – spring or fall
Spring Kohlrabi
Lettuce – many kinds
Celeriac
Parsley
Oregano
Thyme
Sage
Summer savory
Marjoram
Sunflowers
Zinnia
Calendula
Cosmos

Egg cartons please

Folks didn’t bring back too many egg cartons last winter pick-up and I need some before Friday. If anyone is able to drop some off (only the traditional paperboard ones… no plastic or Styrofoam please) you could just leave them in the farm truck. If the truck is so full of egg cartons you can’t fit any more in… I’ve probably gotten enough 🙂
