It's been a bit of a learning curve fine-tuning the process to get fresh and frozen produce to you over the winter! I think our veggie washing and sorting went seamlessly this week -- thank goodness. We've been grateful to have warm days in order to wash the vegetables outside. No frozen lines and just a tiny bit of shovelling to contend with. You'll see in the photos that Tristan and I are dressed in our most waterproof gear with lots of layers to keep us warm while we washed tons (literally) of vegetables over a span of 3 hours.
Even though Tristan and I are assembling the Winter CSA bags, I've been feeling so thankful for the collective effort that made it possible (freezing strawberries in June; curing and bagging onions; late fall harvesting to bring in the last of the carrots, parsnips and celeriac; and freezing corn in August). A huge shout out goes to Kelsey, Paul, Annelise, Anne G, Sam, Anne D, Cornelia, and Libby for their work in the summer and fall that allows us to eat so well into the winter!
