Fox Creek Farm CSA Newsletter, week of October 29, 2018
Winter Storage Share
This week is the delivery of the optional winter storage share

In this "Wintershare Special" newsletter:
  • What's in the 2018 winter storage share
  • Storage suggestions
  • Thank you, and a reminder to reserve your share for 2019 

In the 2019 Fox Creek Farm winter storage share:

  • Butternut squash
  • Cabbage
  • Yellow storage onions
  • Red storage onions
  • Kathadin potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Boro beets
  • Adirondack red and blue potatoes
  • German red garlic


Storage suggestions

We have pre-packed most of the produce. As a result, you’ll have to unpack some of it in order to achieve the best storage conditions (i.e. - potatoes and onions). Note that “refrigerator" items (see table below) to our idea do best in a perforated plastic bag.

Vegetable Optimal Storage Temperature. Humidity “For example”
Winter Squash 50-60 °F Low Cool pantry
Cabbage 32 -36 °F (not freezing) High Refrigerator
Beets 32 -36 °F (not freezing) High Refrigerator
Potatoes 35-48 °F (not freezing) High Moist cellar
Onions 50-60 °F Low Cool pantry
Carrots 32 -36 °F (not freezing) High Refrigerator
Garlic 50-60 °F Low Cool pantry


Thank you and 2019 sign-up reminder:

We would like to thank you for your support of our farm this season. With the last share of this year we truly can say that 2018 was very good - most crops came in beautifully, and due to your continued patronage we're able to maintain the economic viability of this small family farm.

Thank you!

Raymond, Sara, and Johanna
