It’s a chilly day for the last CSA distribution of 2010. It’s 16 degrees out there!
Picadilly and Riverland farm crews packed share boxes together yesterday at Picadilly Farm. The boxes were loaded onto a truck. The truck was parked in a nice warm (50 degree) barn overnight to keep the produce from freezing. Right about now, 7 AM, the Picadilly driver is climbing into that warm truck and starting the two hour drive to Lexington. Godspeed to you, Picadilly truck!
Here’s a list of what’s in the share.
Cabbage, green, 1 head
Carrots, 6 pounds
Onions, 2 pounds, either red or yellow
Popcorn, 1 bouquet
Sweet Potatoes, 4 pounds
Beets, 3 pounds
Butternut, 7 pounds (2-3 pieces)
Celeriac, 2-2.5 pounds
Leeks, 1 bunch
Parsnips, 2 pounds
Potatoes, 5 pounds
Winter radishes, 1 pound
Two pounds of Bear’s Best Beans, one pound of light red kidney beans and one pound of your choice.
Leafy greens. The very cold temperatures proved quite challenging to the field and greenhouse greens at Busa Farm. Dennis has planned a mix of lettuce, lettuce greens, kale and a variety of other leafy greens for us.
