This week you are getting Yukon Gold potatoes, Sweet white onions, Chioggia Italian beets, green cabbage, either Nubia (striped) or Globe (black) eggplant, lemon cucumbers, sweet Banana peppers, radishes and our regular red, Black Velvet and Roma tomatoes.
Nectarines are not ready so you will be getting white peaches with your pears plus a box of peaches for canning or freezing if it was ordered before 8pm on Friday. Since I do not check email this time of year…if you sent a request that way, I did not get it.
Winter Share: The deadline for signing up is October 1st. New customers will be contacted and forms will be mailed after the 1st. If it is difficult to pay that initial payment of $150, we will accept monthly payments through February! This will give you six monthly payments of $67 with a $2 processing fee.
We have a host for Distribution in Wheatridge at 26th and Sheridan as well as Centennial at University and Clarkson and Lakewood at Union and Alameda. However we need a volunteer to host as a Distribution Center anywhere south of Arapahoe in Boulder. If you are interested, please give me a call! As a Working Member, you will get a $100 discount!
Beef and Lamb: We still have several lambs and two steers available if you are interested in organic meat. The lambs will go in for processing sometime in November/December and the steers will be ready for processing in January/February.
Festival: Deadline for reserving your name and the number of attendees is Saturday the 14th. Please contact Peg Lehr at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-329-8506. She will need to know how many adults, kids, vegetarian burgers and if you can volunteer. Master Grillers are really needed from 10 to 12 but every category needs volunteers throughout the day.
The Festival starts at 11am and ends at 3pm. There will be some excellent entertainment under the tents. Come join us for a relaxing day listening to music, or try your (cooking) hand and enter the Canning contest; judging will be from 12 to 1. Little ones can fly on their horses in the Stick horse-race from 12 to 12:30. How fast can you shuck corn? The corn shucking contest will be from 1 to 2. Hayrides to the pumpkin patch will begin at 11:30 and will continue until everyone child has picked out a pumpkin!
