Thank you! We made it to the final pickup of the regular summer share season. It is fun to say we had the best-ever season! We love sharing the bounty of the gardens with our CSA Family. We have said it many times before but we are beyond grateful for this life we have and so thankful for the members of our CSA family. Much love to all of you.

Gold Rush.

A beautiful week of final duties. We STILL! have digging to do with the big sweet potato harvest but think all will finally be out of the ground next week. It feels good to see the space open up in the main gardens and the compost pile grows. Scott has most of the trellising down in the gardens and we have irrigation to pull. The hoop houses are planted with late seasons greens for the bonus shares but the ground is opening up in there too.

Scott washing the last of the greens of the main 2022 season.

It has been a near-perfect season for us and we are glad, relieved and a bit tired all rolled together. Thank you to all members that returned the survey. It is very helpful in planning and we appreciate the honest opinions on this season. Overall we feel very positive about the summer. The weather was wonderful and we had a bounty of rain. Our tomato season was strong and that is always a relief as so much time is dedicated to this crop. We were happy with 8 weeks of harvest but a bit disappointed that the heirloom varieties were not the powerhouses they have been past seasons. We had great cucumbers and zucchini and the bean rotations seemed to hit the mark. We reached our annual yearly goal of fresh delicious lettuce every week in our shares. We do not think any other CSA does this and we are thrilled we are able to pull it off through the summer heat. We had a best-ever season with many crops, kohlrabi, carrots, onions, lettuce, spinach, potatoes and sweet potatoes. Brussels sprouts were strong this year after crop failure last year due to mildew. Cabbage and early broccoli were great too. Oh! edamame was perfect this year and we felt the volume just right. We were happy with the beet rotations that came out of hoop 2-this is a crop we struggle with a bit for some reason and we are happy with our decision to only plant in the hoop house and we are happy we transplanted those itty bitty transplants to get a jump on the harvest. Cousin John’s Sweet Corn rocked! Absolutely fantastic and we are grateful with the Raupp Family Farm sharing their delicious sweet corn with us. The disappointments are few but there are always a few. Our second rotation of broccoli grew huge and strong in the summer heat and rain and then those big damp heads baked in the hot afternoon sun and rotted. Ick! And sad to watch. We were bummed with the pepper harvest too. Peppers were there but not the bounty we hoped for. Over all we are happy with the season and feel satisfied with our rotation of variety and quality.

Scott just did the total for the season…..13,344 pounds of produce went home with share members this summer. WOW!

A thank you to our helpers Jeannie and Al who were there when we needed them. Happy workers that made life easier. And a thank you to all again who kept us going last Fall when Scott was ill and supported us in so many ways….everyone of you made this season possible and we are beyond grateful.

CSA #18-Final Share of the 2022 Summer CSA Season


Head Lettuce-Another juicy, delicious and beautiful head lettuce.

Arugula-A snappy treat for the final share. Great added to fresh raw salads or a light wilt with a bit of salt for a warm side.

Arugula triple rinsed and ready for the shares.

Potaotes-The variety this week is gold rush. Great for soups but can be baked fried or boiled.

Just dug gold rush

Sweet potatoes-We included both varieties this week in the shares…

Squash-Snack choose 1 Full Share choose 2-several varieties to choose from.

Onions-Storage that will last several months.

Pie Pumpkin-A varietiy we love. Heirloom. Very dry and creamy. Perfect for soup, bars or pie. Thin walled so not a long storage life….Fall ornamentals here for thise members that would rather have a decorative and not bake a pumpkin.



A happy week here to kick off October. Fun days in the autumn sun digging out the sweet potatoes and hauling loads out of the pumpkin and squash patch. We are beating the frost expected Friday night. We have a ways to go with the sweet potatoes but what a harvest!

1/2 way with the sweet potato big dig!

We love this time of year with all the colors and wonderful bounty! It sure is heavy and we are running out of storage space but we are not complaining-this has been a near-perfect season for us and always fun to say “best ever!” Spinach and lettuce are amazing this week from the hoop houses and the hoop houses will chug along hopefully until Christmas as we like to harvest on Christmas Eve for fun…We have the last leeks to pull from the main garden this coming week and the outside gardens will be ready to be put to bed.



Head lettuces-A perfect pair and just delicious.

We planted 2 different colors of the same variety with the hope they would be ready at the same time. It worked!

Sweet potatoes-A different variety this week-bayou belle. Enjoy!

Bayou Belle

Spinach-A huge harvest out of hoop 2. Very flavorful.

Spinach at morning harvest.

Brussels Sprouts-A treat for sure. We snuck some more off the stalks and got 100 pounds. Roasted or pan fried they are delicious. Or shaved in a slaw make a great raw salad.

Radishes-A snappy addition to fresh salads….

Garlic-This is the end of the garlic for the season.

Onions-More storage onions cured in our shed. These will last several months.

Squash-Several varieties to choose from…snack select 1 full share select 2.



A photo from a few years ago but a favorite I like to look at this time of year….We have a happy life-thank you to all that have made it happen.


2 frosty mornings and we know Autumn is here. We harvested all the peppers and the last of the green beans from the outside gardens before the chilly nights and closed the sides on the hoop houses. We LOVE this time of year.

1st frost on the brussels sprouts.

We are hauling heavy and colorful harvests out of the gardens these days. The sweet potato bonanza continues and hopefully the last of them will be out of the ground by the end of next week. Absolutely amazing and we will have a bounty of sweet potatoes in the last 2 shares. 15 crates out of a 1/2 row and now we ponder where we are going to store them all.

We have a few more potatoes to pull out, but we are on the other side of that big job for sure.

Gold rush potato harvesting…

Our goal is to get a truckload of squash and pumpkins every day and we are in front of that too right now. We are having fun but it does feel a bit odd not to be transplanting or seed starting.

CSA #16


Head Lettuce-I think this week’s lettuce harvest is the best of the season. Crisp, flavorful, HUGE! and beautiful.


Winter Squash- Full share select 2 snack pack select 1. A great variety to choose from. Acorns, delicata, butternuts, and a few unusual ones too.

Ornamental Pumpkins-We have the driveway all set for members to select their favorite.

Cabbage/chinese cabbage-Final minis from the garden. 1 or the other in the shares this week.

Carrots-We had a goal this season to plant more carrots. A great harvest this week. Final carrot crop out of hoop 2 on Sunday. Enjoy!




CSA #15

A week of clean-up around the gardens….”wide open spaces” the theme. All tomatoes are gone and trellises coming down. Feels odd not to focus on tomatoes as it has been a constant since March. Our favorite activity this time of year is visiting the squash/pumpkin patch and we are diving in. The 1st truck load came out and Maeve drove! She drives we load…

We are thrilled with the spinach harvest starting up again and looking to pull the final carrot crop from hoop 2. The chill is in the air and somehow Autumn is here. Fun ornamental(and edible) pumpkins in our future. Pumpkin harvest is always fun. Beautiful unexpected gifts are found under those big leaves after a season of hard work. “WOW! come look at this one” we say over and over. It’s been a wonderful season.

CSA #15


Head lettuce-I love growing lettuces. The differences in flavor, texture, and colors are very interesting to me. We harvested 2 varieties this week. A green leafy summer crunch that is a huge muppet head and delicious and a dark-colored summer crisp. Green heads in snack and both in full this week.

Spinach-Our first big harvest of the fall season. Delicious and juicy and glad it is back with the cool temperatures. Triple rinsed and ready to eat.

We are experimenting this Fall. We transplanted spinach in a checkerboard pattern (as usual) and also direct seeded in the hoop house in rows. We are going to see if we notice any differences.

Carrots!-Grown in hoop 2. The variety is called Romance and a favorite.

What a beauty!

Storage onions-A few from our curing rack in the shed. A great onion year. The variety is Dakota.

Jeannie and Maeve harvested the onions many weeks ago.

Sweet potato-Best ever harvest for us-and that is fun to say. Enjoy!

Italian Fry Peppers-Sweet and colorful.

Green Beans-This is the “Hail Mary” crop we planted. Never know if they will produce in time with weather and day length. They made it! And the longest beans we ever picked.

Garlic-We will have garlic in every other week shares until the end….

Squash!-Finally…it is here! We will have Squash out for share members to select a favorite. Snack choose 1 Full Share choose 2. Great selection including heirlooms.

Cilantro-Trays are out to cut what members wish….


A fun fast week around here! The 3 inches of rain changed our clean-up plans as we were not too excited to slip around in the mud and pull up irrigation in the sloppy fields. So we kept ourselves busy with hoop house duties and other tasks that have been taking the back burner this summer. And on a few of those chilly days, long johns were on! It is starting to feel like Fall for sure. We are digging the “best ever!” sweet potato harvest whenever we have time and spent a few hours yesterday pulling some beauties from the field. It’s amazing and we are thrilled. Get ready to eat a lot of sweet potatoes!

CSA #14


Head Lettuce-We are rocking the lettuce this year! Beautiful romaine and summer crisp this week.

Romaine in the morning sun.
Summer Crisp! Snappy.

Edamame-This is the last of that mountain of Edamame we harvested this season. Quick blanch and eat the bean from the pod with a bit of salt. We love it on fresh salads.

Edamame at harvest.

Potatoes-This week’s selection is Peter Wilcox. Purple skin and white flesh. Bake, fry, roast, or mash it is wonderful. A delicious all-around potato.

Peter Wilcox Harvest.

Shallots-A few more of these little delights. We had a great shallot onion season.

Sunflower bouquet-A little beauty to feed the soul. A fun CSA tradition for us in the Fall.

Maeve with the bouquets.
Sunflower bouquets are ready to go home with CSA members.

Beets-These beauties came out of hoop 2. This is the last of the beets for the season.

Micro Greens-This is a snappy mix of assorted radishes. The perfect garnish for a fresh salad or a cream soup.


Peppers-We pulled a few more Italian fry peppers from the plants this week. And assorted Bells for full share only. Hot or mildly hot peppers on the extra table.

Baby Spinach!-(Full Share only)-The start of the spinach from hoop 2. Enough for Full Share only this week but more to come. Another sure sign of the change of season to wonderful Autumn.

The start of the Autumn Spinach Harvest.

BEST GUESS FOR NEXT WEEK-Squash!, potatoes, sweet potatoes, head lettuce, carrots, onions, peppers, leeks, and more…..

CSA #13

And just like that Autumn rolls in….the shade cloths coming off the hoop houses always signal the change of season.

We rocked garden clean up this week! We pulled out the early brassicas and tossed them in the compost pile. We pulled the cucumber vines off the trellis and tomatoes too. More landscape tarp came up and stored and irrigation rolled up to recycle.

Pulling the broccoli plants.

We direct seeded in some late arugula in hoop 1 and our treat for the week was dig some early sweet potatoes.

We checked the squash and pumpkin patch and almost ready! Hopefully next week we will be able to harvest some winter squash.

CSA #13

Fun fact. The week is our heaviest CSA share EVER! A new record! 1318 pounds going home with members. A bounty!


Head lettuce-Just beautiful lettuce this week from Hoop 1. It is delicious and so pretty.

Lettuce harvest in the morning sun.
Harvest complete. This is where we quickly cleaned up and prepped the area to replant arugula.

Watermelon-Another great harvest. HUGE! guys and seedless minis.

Huge watermelon ready to go home with CSA members.
Cousin John with the big watermelon harvest.

Cherry tomatoes-This is the last week (I think) for cherry tomatoes….enjoy the last of these little delights.

Potatoes-Gold rush is the variety and (another) personal favorite. Dry and fluffy great for mashed and fried. Baked too!

Gold rush potato.

Sweet potatoes-Get ready the harvest is amazing. We planted tons and early too to ensure a nice long season after last year’s so so harvest. 2 varieties went in this is the early one.

Peppers-Italian fry peppers in all the shares and cute little lunchbox sweet peppers in full share only this week. Hot peppers and mildly hot peppers on the extra table.

A mix of peppers. We walk the rows ever other day to harvest.

Garlic-more from our stash….garlic will be in every other week until season end.

Onions-1st of the storage onions cured down in our shed.

Storage onions at harvest.

Kohlrabi-This variety is a german heirloom. A jumbo and not woody. Peel and eat raw or add to stirfry or roast.

Green beans-Full share only this week….and good news the late “hail mary” crop is flowering. We will have a other rotation of late beans! We are thrilled.

Best guess for next week….leaf lettuce, edamame, beets, potatoes, winter squash??, onions, peppers AND another surprise or 2.

CSA #12

Happy September and Happy Back to School for all the kids in our CSA family. It is going to be a wonderful year!

1st day of 8th Grade!

Last of the tomatoes cooking down for delicious winter meals….and our thoughts turn to Autumn squash and potato harvesting.

Cherry tomato sauce.

We had a powerhouse week again. The last of the Fall Spinach was transplanted into hoop 2-the jumbo!!! edamame crop harvested and cleaned, a big beet harvest out and washed for future shares, 3 lettuce rotations decided they were ready at the same time so a great lettuce harvest this week too. Maeve and Jennifer harvested the watermelon as the rainstorm hit, got them all in record time and then danced in the rain to celebrate.

AND we started cleanup!!! An all-time season record for us for being on the ball and tackling this early and not leaving it until the end. Thank you Jeannie for pulling all those beans and cantaloupe and summer squash with us…we even rolled up the landscape fabric. We are on a happy roll!

We harvested the last of the summer squash and pulled the plants-getting ready to lift the landscape fabric.
A beautiful time of year. Transitions.

CSA #12


Head Lettuce Trio-A wonderful mix surprised us this week. Several varieties. Delicious and colorful.

mini romaine

Edamame-Delicious! We love it steamed and eat right from the warm salted pod. Great with fresh salads or in spaghetti sauce. A treat!

Cutting the stalks.
Hauling up to the garage to clean.
Feeling a tiny bit overwhelmed with this “best ever” harvest.
Positive attitude….and good music.
Done! and around 180 pounds of those little guys!
The perfect snack.

Watermelon-A great harvest of the mini watermelon. 3 varieties and some seedless….Sweet and perfectly sized. IF by chance we guess wrong and you receive 1 overripe under ripe or just not quite right please grab another next week. We think we got it but sure hard to know for sure without cutting….A perfect treat to mark the end of summer.

Peppers-We had a great pepper harvest this week. We pulled a few more of the italian fry peppers green as they are so crowded and also pulling the plants over as they are sooooo heavy. More to come. Bells in the Full share this week and assorted mildly hot to hot peppers on the extra table for the members that like a bit of heat. Hot peppers are never added to the shares.

Shallots-The first of the storage shallots and onions. Great mild flavor.

Summer Squash-The OFICIAL END-we pulled the plants. A great run….

Brussels Sprouts!-We planted an extra early variety and started them extra early in the greenhouse. After last year’s sad crop failure we wanted to make sure we had a long abundant season of this favorite. Enjoy the sneak of the bottom of the stalks.

Brussels Sprouts in the sunshine.

Cherry Tomatoes-Another bounty! Maeve is the super washer and packer.

Rich darker colored Cherry tomatoes as the season moves right along to Autumn.

Slice Paste Tomatoes….this is the end we think….a good long 5 weeks of harvest.

Leeks-The 1st harvest of early leeks enough for Full Share only this week. The BEST with fried potatoes.

Leeks at harvest.

Green Beans-(Snack only)-We just started the harvest on this 2nd to last rotation in the garden…more to come.

Morning Green Bean pick.

Radish-(Full only)-We had a small space open up a while back in Hoop 2. We seeded in enough radishes for Full Share. More Autumn radishes to come.


Cantaloupe….(Full Only) These are the last of the cantaloupe from the patch harvested before we pulled the vines.

Field check…

BEST GUESS FOR NEXT WEEK-potatoes, head lettuce, heirloom kohlrabi-the jumbo guys!, peppers, garlic, watermelon, beets, storage onions and maybe a surprise…..hmmmmmm

CSA #11

Another perfect week. An easy pace with a later start time as it really is not light out until 6 a.m. We ignored the weedy shaggy edges this week and focused on the harvests and a bit of fun before school starts.

The very last lettuce rotation of the season was seeded in cells in the greenhouse-crazy! We still transplant out 300 lettuce plants a week in hoop 1 and will continue this for about 6 more weeks.

Morning Lettuce transplanting.

And it is tomato sauce time here. Both Nesco crock pots hang out on the counter these days.

We planted a long row of late radishes in Hoop 2 for fun and we dug the 1st of the heirloom potatoes. We peeked under the sweet potato vines and they sure look great. The cucumbers are done and the last picking of cucumbers on the extra table this week and I think we will be coming to a hard stop on the slice tomatoes next week too. We have had a good 5 weeks of tomatoes but we can tell the vines are going down. Expected with this weather and late season but hard to see them go. We are looking forward to Autumn and all the delicious treats to enjoy….best news is we are going to sneak off some brussels sprouts next week for an early taste. The plants are gorgeous and and we planted 2 varieties…1 an extra early variety so we have a nice long season after the crop failure last year.

Potato Harvest.

The storage onions and shallots are just about cured and will appear in future shares. Our cucumber plants are just about done and ready to retire for the season same with zucchini patch #1 and the next rotation of green beans flowering.

Garlic-An image from harvest. Scott has all the garlic cleaned up and ready for the shares. We will have garlic every other week. Great harvest thanks to Jeannie and Brad. Bulk garlic for sale starting next week. And who knew-garlic freezes very well for winter meal prep.

Best Guess for next week-melon???, head lettuce, cabbage, peppers and more….
