The “Show” – Springdell Summer CSA Pickup #17


Hi everyone, Jess here. While the warm summer days have been pushing back here and there, the cooler and frostier days are coming. It’s a great time to harden some squashes, for the winter, fill the chest freezer to it’s brim, and even bring out some of the processing jars as we hunker down for a cold one.

Behold the lovely fruits and veggies of fall!

Single Shares received Butternut and acorn Squash, Yellow Onion, Gala Apples, Brussels Sprouts, and Lettuce.Small Shares received Butternut and Spaghetti Squash, Yellow Onion, Brussels Sprouts, Bell Peppers, Apples and Lettuce. Mega Shares received Spaghetti, Butternut and Red Kuri Squash, Bell and Poblano Peppers, Radishes, Brussels Sprouts, Gala Apples, Watermelon, Yellow Onion, Cucumbers and Lettuce.

Remember separate your lettuce leaves from the core, give them a rinse and pat dry, and store in the fridge in a bag or container with a paper towel or designated cloth napkin. For more details on storage of each veggie, simply click on them from the list above! (Again, definitely read up on Winter Squash storage tips if you’re not familiar!)

As you can see, the Scarecrow Contest over the weekend was a resounding success!
Those little scarecrows went right to sleep after a good read of Goodnight Moon!
Briar’s Sunflower Patch is open to farm patrons daily from Sunrise to Sunset for a wonderful peaceful and beautiful walk down the path.
Unlike the previous volunteer field of sunflowers, Briar’s field this is not a picking field. Please take only pictures, leave only footprints, and enjoy this special place. Thanks to Briar for sharing this special place with us!

Have a wonderful week! See you on back here soon for another addition of the Springdell Show and Tell!
