EUGENE FARM STAND: Due to the extreme heat advisory, we decided not to host the Eugene Wednesday Farm Stand. All of the members who pick up at that location have been re-routed to an alternate location. This is a reminder to those who chose a Tuesday site, to pick up your share this afternoon. If you will be late, or unable to get your share, please call your site host to make them aware.
END OF SEASON HARVEST CELEBRATION CANCELED: Much to our dismay, we are not going to be able to hold our end of season gathering. We are brainstorming on ways to still offer some Jack-o-Lanterns to you all, and we’ll keep in touch about what we can come up with…
Hoping that you and yours are safe and sound on this smokey morning. We are going to do the absolute essential tasks, and then the crew will all go home so we’re not working in these conditions. Sure brings an awareness, and increased compassion, for those who live in these conditions almost every summer….never thought we’d wish for the rain to begin sooner than later, but we are this year.
WHAT’S IN YOUR SHARE
Red Russian Kale
Some Sites Only:
It’s September and the pumpkins are getting plump! We hope you were able to relax and enjoy the holiday weekend. For those of you with kids going back to school, and the teachers or adult learners, we wish you success in navigating the coming school year.
The squash are stacking!
The crew planted next year’s strawberries last week.
WHAT WE’RE MAKING
We’re still thinking school lunches, even though most of you aren’t physically returning to school this term. These are easy to make when everyone’s juggling online schedules.
This site has so many great ideas for getting healthy lunches together that kids of all ages would be happy to have.
Wishing you all a week full of good food and the time to enjoy it.
Bronwynn, Linda and Your Winter Green Farmers
