Shares Available in November

Special Thanksgiving Shares Available

Will you be cooking up a feast for the holiday?  Would you like the opportunity to try Radix Farm’s CSA? Great news!   Radix Farm is offering a special Thanksgiving CSA Share.  The offer is open to anyone, current members and non-members.  There are limited shares available;  sign-up now to reserve your share of fresh seasonal produce.

The details:

DATES:  Shares will be harvested and delivered on Tuesday, November 16th.  Depending on interest and produce availability, an additional pick-up date will be added on Tuesday, November 23rd.

COST:  Each share will cost $30, including delivery to Washington, DC.

LOCATION:  The share(s) will be delivered to Radix Farm’s Mt. Pleasant pick-up location (a porch near the corner of 16th St. and Spring Pl. NW, Washington, DC).  You will have from 5pm to 7pm to pick up your share.  All shares will be pre-bagged.

WHAT YOU WILL GET:  The share size will be similar to a typical weekly Radix Farm CSA share.  You will receive roughly eight of the following items in each bag; there may be slight variations of the contents of the bags.  Listed below is my best estimation of what will be in the Thanksgiving Shares (in order of most certain to least certain).  At this time of year, availability of some of the items depends on what the weather brings.
– Sweet Potatoes
– Collard Greens and/or Kale and/or Swiss Chard
– Radicchio or head Lettuce
– Chinese/Napa Cabbage or Red Cabbage
– Bok Choi
– Tat Soi
– Butternut Squash
– Turnips (Red Round, White Globe, and possibly Hakurei salad turnips)
– Radishes (Daikon, possibly Easter Egg salad turnips)
– Salad Mix (Arugula or Spicy Mesclun mix or Mizuna)
– Salad Mix (Lettuce)
– Garlic
– Broccoli Raab

HOW TO SIGN UP:  Email radixfarm(at)gmail.com by November 3rd.  There are a limited number of shares available, and they will be sold first come first served.  In your email, please indicate if you would like to:

A. Get share on Tuesday, November 16th ONLY
B. Get a share on Tuesday, November 23rd ONLY, if available
C. Get two shares – one on November 16th and one on November 23rd (if available)

In early November I will send confirmation to everyone who has contacted me with the exact share dates, as well as additional information on what to expect in the share and the pick-up address.  I will also ask you to send  a check to reserve your space.

Please call or email if you have any questions.
