September 29th CSA Harvest & Pick-Up

Over heard in the gardens today:

"How do you pick-up your vegetables from the CSA?"
"You just have to turnip."

Rain makes everything funnier (that's a Vancouverism, as of now).

Tokyo Whites: delicious and pun-tastic.

September 22nd CSA Harvest & Pick-Up

 A few indicators that Fall officially arrived yesterday afternoon:
1. Rain. A good Vancouver soaking with small breaks that make you think that the rain might be letting up, then it rains more and sideways. The summer sunshine has made us soft.

2. Veggie Shift: beets, turnips, radishes and kohlrabi this week. The cool weather crops are ready to make their late season appearance and fill your soups and stews with flavour and nutrients. Welcome back friends.

With that in mind, we still have lots of tomatoes and beans in the garden - a lingering taste of summer to ease the transition.

September 8th & 15th Harvests

2-in-1. September hits like a 2x4! The confluence of school and farms, neither one respects the other's schedule.

Here's a mix bag of pics from the past 2 harvests. For those who crave more frequent updates, Cam is still posting on Instagram quite regularly...and he has an eye for veggies.
