CSA Third Week of September


 It's the EQUINOX!!!!!


If you’ve followed us for any amount of time you know that we love the seasonal changes as directed by his royal majesty the Sun. And we pay very close attention to the movements of the sun--they matter for us. They matter more than the numbers and words on the calendar. Because while those numbers and words have significance, we all know that the Sun is the source and cause of all the drama. He is the unmoved mover. 


The autumnal equinox is the grand let down for us. The panting relief. The permission to stop. The peace-be-with-you benediction on the whole season. We won’t drown in cucumbers after all! All the monuments in our garden will crumble and fall. And we can celebrate that end as much as we celebrated their triumphal erection in the spring. 


Last week we got some HARD freezes. Lots of things straight up died. Full stop. Dead. Even some things that we had protected. Unfortunately we still haven’t received some of the protective equipment we ordered weeks and weeks ago (Covid strikes again?). Which means a little more got fried than we would have liked. 


The garden plot line is unpredictable at this time of the year. We’ll see how things play out...It could all be dead in a matter of days or linger on for weeks. We’re just following the grand conductor and playing our part as long as the music goes on. And we’re ok with that. 


This week in your share we have included the cutest little pumpkin you’ve ever seen. But let me be crystal clear: it is for decorative purposes ONLY. DO NOT TRY TO EAT IT! (It’s technically a gourd which means it is not edible). Instead, use it to decorate and remind yourself to slow down, enjoy the color show, and practice thankfulness, because its FALL and no matter how intense it might get, the uproar and heat of it all can never last forever. 


In your share:


Zucchini

Jack-be-Little

Fennel

Parsley

Kale

Carrots

Arugula

Watermelon
