Picket Fence Farm Newsletter #19

Picket Fence Farm HappeningsSeason 2 Issue #19

What’s Happening on the Farm
Well, the garden is in pretty bad shape this week; there is not much left to harvest. This will be our final delivery/pick-up of the season. It hasn’t been the best year for growing...the weather definitely did not cooperate, but we had many blessings along the way. Thanks to all of our CSA customers for sticking with us (even during weeks when the bags weren't as full as they should have been). This winter we will be coming up with new plans and ideas for our business and gardens, so please keep reading our blog for new developments. If you know you want to join the CSA again next year please let us know so we can write your name on our list. We will be accepting a limited number of people on a first come, first served basis (with current members getting first choice). We are excited for next year and the possibilities that a new season will bring. Here’s to a better 2011!
