Last Chance Winter Squash & Apples From Storytree Farm

This just in courtesy of Summer from Dee Creek Farm:

End of Summer winter squash and pumpkin sale at Storytree Farm!

This Wednesday, October 28th from 3pm until 6pm, you're invited to come out to Storytree CSA Farm in Vancouver (6227 NE 124th Street - 98686) to choose and purchase your favorite variety of winter squash and/or pumpkin, most $1/pound. These have been grown using no chemicals and lots of love from Nelson & Anne. This is a good time to put your old preserving techniques to the test. Remember what we've learned about preserving winter squash - and that they'll last up to (and sometimes past!) a year. Just last week I ate one of Storytree's butternuts that I had oiled last Fall. Crazy! But what a blessing to be able to eat them throughout the 'off' season.

For those of you who have pre-ordered apples (I'll email you separately as well as confirmation), we're changing our pick up at this time. If you didn't order, but wish you would have, Anne ordered some extra boxes for $25 each twenty-pound box. I imagine they'll go fast, so come earlier in the day if you're hoping to nab one up for the last of your apple preserving!

I'll be there the whole time, helping sort and load. I'd love to see some of you there! With local markets closing for the winter, this may be one of your last opportunities for super fresh produce from local farmers (tho' our deliveries continue as long as there is food and people!). Here's to a happy Fall & Winter!
