Welcome to Week 35!

We'll see all Full Shares, ODD-week Half Shares, Mini Shares and Delivered Shares this week.

Notice regarding Thanksgiving week shares last week:  I copied last season's Thanksgiving week share lists into my current season Excel file and didn't realize that the top line in each of the shares was not included in the sum total. This means the meat wasn't counted in my tally, so I will be going a little short on the shares for a couple of weeks to make up the missing charge. This is my first-ever mistake so it really threw me for a loop.

BYOB = Bring Your Own Bags. We are happy to help you out when you forget or are picking up unexpectedly. If you are sending someone to pick up for you, please let them know to bring bags.

Reminder: Please wait until your weekly share items have been added to your cart before selecting any items from the store. You don't have to wait until the newsletter is sent, but keep in mind that the store updating will not have been completed before you receive the newsletter. If the store is closed by the time you check, you may logout to browse the store and send us an email, but we may not see it before you pick up because we often aren't at our computers all afternoon.

Online Store Order Deadlines:
- 11 a.m. for Wednesday pickup groups
- 9 a.m. for Thursday Delivered shares
- Noon for Thursday pickup groups



If you send in your trades and orders and wish to add on or make changes, you may safely do so up until your ordering deadline without it messing anything up. The final cart content is what shows up on the report we use to pull orders.

We've been struggling to have everything ready for Wednesday pickups to start on time at 3:30, so if you're able, please come a little later, or if you arrive early to pickup and we're scrambling to finish setting up, feel free to jump in--we're happy to have our community participate in our Community Supported Agriculture!

Keeping the inventory in the store accurate is extra difficult with our system and schedule, so if we are out of something you request, we may contact you if time allows, or send an alternative option. You can always trade it and select something different from the swap items available at your pickup site (sorry, this option is not available to Delivery to Groups members). If you're looking for something you don't see, just email/ask because we might have it even if it isn't in the store.

Login to your Farmigo account to swap out the tradable items in your cart.

Everyone says sexy food pics entice people to try a recipe, so enjoy! This simple gratin can be altered, adjusted, seasoned as you see fit, but the simplicity here really allows the pure, delicious flavors of the produce to shine. Plus, heavy cream? I ask you, what could be bad?Read more
This is a recipe for fresh pasta. This one calls for gnocchi, which we just get frozen, but any short pasta would work well here. This is completely made up, which means you can make up your own version based on what is available. The basic requirements that make this work well are: fresh pasta, veggies, good flavoring (onion, garlic, herbs), something juicy (fresh or canned tomatoes, some broth, etc.), greens (also adds some moisture), and a cheese (you could skip this, but really, why?)Read more
Simply delicious and satisfying. This is a versatile dish that you can mix and match to include whatever ingredients you have on hand.Read more
The photo looks a bit psychedelic with the purple cabbage and bright green vitamin greens, but really, it's food. It's a big, thick, juicy cabbage steak. What? Mmmmm... Trust me on this. The giant green cabbages we got in this week will be perfect prepared like this.Read more

Sometimes inspiration strikes, but it's more of a strike out. And sometimes, the heavens open and the angels do sing... This was such a happy lunch that I had to do it again for dinner. The third time, I omitted the ham and substituted pecans; the angels started singing in rounds.Read more
