Howdy Folks,

Welcome to week 9, where things are going smooth so far. We thought we wouldn’t have them but, carrots are in this week! We will likely have enough for everyone to get a taste of their crazy, crunchy-ness. Come and get ‘em, more are available at our farm stand on Friday and Saturday 10:00am- 2:00pm. The fields at our city farm are going through transition with this cold weather. We pulled our rows of squash out and moved them to the sweet compost bin to be turned into soil. Golden frill mustard was planted in some of it’s place. Peppers and some of our baby starts were hit by the cold over the weekend. Kale, although aphids have found their place within them, are still going strong. Collards, head lettuce, and other treats are coming in soon. At the city farm we will be hosting a composting class on December 3rd from 11:00am- 12:30pm. Learn all you need to know from Zach Halfin, one of the most seasoned composter I know; $25.00 – group discounts may apply. Thanks for being a part of Green Gate’s CSA and prepare yourself for our winter CSA starting January 9th, aka let us know if you want to join!
