Week 15 update from our farmer

Posted 9/15/2020 2:17pm by Jeff Schrimmer.

The next weekly Pickup of the 2020 season will be this Wednesday, September 16th from 5:15pm to 8:00pm at 180 Sussex St. All food that is not picked up by members will be picked up by the Our Lady of Sorrows Food Pantry at 8pm.

Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped at the pickup site and behind the scenes. We could not do this without you. Our volunteers this week will be Elizabeth G. and Aleks J. (5pm to 8pm)

Full shares are now being delivered in boxes that cannot leave the pickup site.  Please bring your own bags so you can transfer the contents to them. If you have borrowed a reusable bag from us, we ask that you return it.  If you have received items in plastic containers, please return the containers.  Egg share members should also return their cartons. 

Remember that face coverings are mandatory when picking up as well as maintaining a 6 foot distance from others if they are not in your household. Only one member of your household will be allowed to enter the garage. Regulations from the Jersey City Department of Health and Human Services can be viewed here: http://www.downtownharvest.org/blog/39286

We are still accepting new members for produce at prorated fees, but John has asked us not to take any new orders for eggs for the time being.

Sincerely,


Maria, Phil, Katia, Nancy, Jeff, and Pamela

And, here is an update from our farmer, John Krueger:

Hi All, So, the days are getting shorter and the nights cooler. This begins to slow down the warm weather crops.  We are taking a break from peppers for a week or two to allow the fruit to size up and ripen, so that we can get you another round of colored peppers. We also hope to send eggplant one more time this season- the plants are loaded with fruit but are growing very slowly.  We will have to see how long we can keep the zucchini coming…   As we head into autumn, greens will become more abundant and we will begin to have brassica family crops more consistently. We have lots of broccoli, cauliflower and Brussel’s sprouts planted and they are thriving under these conditions. The sweet potato crop is looking good but needs a few more weeks to size up. More corn is coming soon!

The share for this week will be: Summer squash, beans, lettuce, green cabbage, potatoes, garlic, beets, kale, arugula or tatsoi and cilantro. Enjoy!   Farmer John
