So, most of you know by now that I LOVE food. I label myself as a foodie and enjoy pretty much anything that falls under that broad category! Living in Charleston, there are great restaurants and local shops to keep me satisfied but sometimes I run my pocketbook into the ground trying to keep up with all of the amazing, organic options that are around me!! So, when a friend of mine told me about the CSA Program at Pinckney’s Produce, I got super excited! The boxes are HUGE so my husband and I are starting with a single share but, whatever the size, you get an entire box of fresh, local fruits and veggies delivered every single week…really inexpensively! There are locations all over the Charleston are so just click on the website and find the one near you! So to all my fellow foodies, here you go…you’ll definitely thank me for it! Below is a copy of the email that they just sent out with even more information…
We have just completed our Spring/Summer season for 2010, and what a fantastic harvest it was! The boxes were just overflowing with produce each and every week, and we couldn’t be happier with the quality and taste of each variety. Our Fall season begins in just over a month and a half! We are busy preparing the fields and planting our Fall crops, so all will be ready to go during our first week of delivery. We hope you’ll join us!
The Fall season runs 11 weeks from September 7th to November 22nd. We are anticipating the same great variety for the Fall that we had for Spring. Crops will include: Butter beans, Field Peas, Winter Squash (Acorn, Spaghetti, Butternut), Sweet Potatoes, Pumpkins, String Beans, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Lettuces, Spinach, Swiss Card, Kale, Mustards, Collards, Rutabaga, Turnips, Green Peanuts, Carrots, Beets, Watermelon, Sweet Corn, Cucumber, Eggplant, Peppers (Banana, Green, Yellow, Red), Tomatoes (Cherry, Slicers, and Roma), Squash, Zucchini, and many other surprises.
We are now accepting new members on our website for the Fall season. We anticipate that several drop sites will fill up quickly (especially Forest Lake Gardens and Rosewood Market in Columbia), so please reserve your spot today! We are very excited about a few new drop sites in the Charleston area: Earth Fare in West Ashley, Ted’s Butcherblock Downtown, and, Crowfield Baptist in Goose Creek. We think that this Fall will be our best season yet, and we hope that you will join us!
