Resending all info one more time!

Posted 6/1/2020 6:38pm by Andy Watson.


I am re-sending the two pertinent emails from yesterday to make sure everyone has them in one location. I'm sorry for the multiple emails yesterday and hopefully this is the last until the newsletter on Wednesday. Please read all the information below as it is important. Also, please take a picture or print out the dates for your CSA share/location. 

We are just a few days away from the beginning of the Main Season CSA Shares. Please make sure you read this email in it's entirety as it will have info for everyone about the season. Please note, in the text below, you will find out your start date if you have an Every Other Week Share with us. 

If you have an Every Week share, the full 20 weeks, your start date for the first box is next Thursday, June 4th.  

If you are picking up your share at one of these pickup locations,

The Farm, Cambridge, Stoughton, Oregon, Amtelco, or Monona and you have an Every Other Week Share, your first box is next week, Thursday, June 4th as well. You will be picking up on ODD box dates(the actual box number, not the date). Box numbers 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19

ODD box numbered dates are ...

June 4th/June 18th/July 2nd/July 16th/July 30/August 13th/August 27th/September 10th/September 24th/October 8th


 If you are picking up your share at one of these locations,

Hermina St., East Johnson Street, Randall Ave., Regent St., or Dorchester Way and you have an Every Other Week Share, your first box is on Thursday, June 11th. You will be picking up on EVEN box dates(the actual box number, not the date) Box numbers 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20

June 11th/June 25th/July 9th/July 23rd/August 6th/August 20th/September 3rd/September 17th/October 1st/October 15th

Box pickup days.

Please don't take home the black plastic totes that the shares are held in at the sites. These are pricey for us to replace. We will be bagging the shares again this season to keep the food cleaner. You can bring your own bag, use the big bag in the share or bring a box. You may also leave behind the bag we provide if it is not needed. Just leave it in the black box.

The boxes will be labeled with your name again this season. Please don't take a box unless it has your name on the label. We don't have boxes made up back at the farm and if boxes are taken on a day it shouldn't, we have to harvest the produce again to replace the taken box. 

Cookbooks, if ordered will be included in your first box. Let us know if you have any questions. Here is a link to the specific site page from our website with details about each sites location and time. Please be respectful of the sites as they are members homes. We do have a checkoff sheet at each site that we use to make sure everyone got their share. If you could please check off the box next to your name it really helps us if the wrong boxes are taken at a site. It shouldn't be a problem since all boxes have labels with names and sites printed on them. This year there will be a waxed box containing our small weekly shares. They will be labeled as well so there shouldn't be any confusion. Standard size weekly shares and EOW shares will be in our black totes again. Family shares will be in a larger sized waxed box as well. We will also have a sign out for the first couple weeks at each site designating it as a pickup location. 

If you have specific questions please email us or call during box week. I can be reached on delivery days at 608-469-2319 or by email before at andy@macwatson.net

Please take a picture on your phone if you have one of the pickup dates or print it and tape it to your forehead or fridge, car, etc. so you know which dates you pick up. With schedules out of whack with covid_19 and all, it may be trickier this summer to remember which days are yours to pick up.

Canning shares are distributed at the end of the season and you will receive updates as we start producing them. You will receive a newsletter link via email on Wednesday nights/early Thursday morning which serves as your weekly reminder to pick up as well. This email goes out to everyone in our CSA so make sure you check with your dates to make sure it is your week. Also remember, we had a cool early May and things got slowed down that were out in the field so we may be on the lighter side as far as veggies go for the first couple of weeks then we should start seeing boxes ramp up as we get towards the end of the month. Early weeks tend to be leafy greens, radishes, etc. and the middle to the end of the CSA tend to be the heaviest. We grow what is in season, we can push some things earlier with hoophouses but we can't push everything. CSA means you eat what is in season. We are also at the whim of mother nature so cross your fingers she's feeling kind this season!

Thanks again for your support this season and in past seasons if this isn't your first with us. We are getting close to our 20th season and getting better each year. I'm sure I'm forgetting something so you may hear from us soon!

Have a great week and enjoy this weather while it lasts!
