Dear Blue Goose Farm CSA Members,

Even if you've been a CSA member for awhile, you may still struggle with what to do with some items. Kale being one of them. It isn't a favorite for everyone, but keep experimenting with recipes until you find that one that's a keeper. We have 2 recipes this week that we think you'll like. The amount of kale we provide will only allow you to try one of the recipes. Just hold onto the other for another time.

Peas are also in the box again, but not enough of either kind to go all around, so some of you will get snow and some will get sugar. The pods are edible for both kinds.

Here is this week's newsletter - Newsletter 2017 Week 4. And to help you eat through your box in a timely manner without waste, follow our Veggie Triage - 101 guide.

Dear Blue Goose Farm CSA Members,

Dodging thunderstorms while trying to pick in the fields is no fun task. We needed the rain to water the plants, but we sure didn't need the lighting to show the way.  However, in the end it's all worth it when we can bring you tasty delights with a few new items this week: kohlrabi, beets, and peas.

Here is this week's newsletter - Newsletter 2017 Week 3. And if you're still unsure about what to do with scapes, here is the link to our Recipe Addition for Garlic Scape Infused Olive Oil (it's worth the effort!).

Dear BGF CSA Members,

Staying in touch with our members during the off-season is important to us.  We feel it's a way to let you know we're thinking of you...and hoping you're doing the same with us.  The past few years, we simply sent a Christmas card via email.  This year, though, we thought we would send a quick Holiday Edition of our newsletter.   We hope you enjoy this little memo and fun recipes.

Perhaps, as you visit with friends and family over these upcoming holidays, mention of our program may arise in the conversation. If so, please forward this email to them. Invite them to visit our website or to join. Consider purchasing a share as a gift idea for those who are hard to buy for. Just a thought anyway....

We wish all of you the best that the season's have to offer.

And from all of us at Blue Goose Farm, Happy Thanksgiving! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

Dear Blue Goose Farm CSA Members,

It is a bit hard to believe that the end of the season is upon us. And yet, as busy of a summer as we've had, we shouldn't be too surprised that the time has passed us by. We just hope that you enjoyed the experience with us and will join us again next year. Until then...eat healthy, eat happy!

One final plea: Please, if you happen to have any empty CSA boxes at home, we would very much appreciate it if you would return them. Please bring them back even if they are broken.

Dear Blue Goose Farm CSA Members,

Wow, the official start to fall was last Thursday, and the cool weather quickly followed! We hope you were able to get our and about this past weekend to enjoy the splendor of the season.

Speaking of splendor...what a box! A nice array of food, some are repeat items because that is what's in season now. Perhaps you can find new ways to enjoy familiar foods - like our Garlic Roasted Cabbage; or take the chill off with a hearty homemade soup - like the one shared by one of our members. And because you are getting just one acorn and one butternut squash, try our Acorn and Butternut Mash with Sage.

Remember, next week is the last week of CSA for 2016. Again, if you have any white boxes or blue cartons lying around, please return them this week. Thank you!

Dear Blue Goose Farm CSA Members,

Well, this week is the official change of seasons with the Autumnal Equinox on Thursday. From here on out, you will see a big difference in your box from the summer items to those that are best and hardiest for this coming fall season.

We are also hoping to simplify your time in the kitchen with easier meals so you can spend more time outdoors, before the brisk chill sets in.
