It’s official: the 2017 season at Arlington Gardens is under way.
Visit our sign-up page to register for your 2017 CSA basket.
We’ve been working on the new season for several weeks, now.
For starters, we will be offering a regular season of 20 baskets and an extended season of 23 baskets. For those of you who choose 20 baskets, the season will start June 14 and end October 26. Those of you opting for 23 baskets will also see the season start June 14, but it will run through November 30. The three November baskets will be delivered every two weeks from November 1st. With the construction of a large unheated greenhouse last year, we will be able to offer a nice variety of leaf vegetables to complement the usual late season root vegetable fare.
We have also heeded requests for more seasonal fruit in your baskets. We aim to do our best to offer more this season. 2017 will be a transitional year for us, as we begin to increase acreage for strawberries and grapes and to increase our blueberry yields. Provided you are patient, you should see these changes gradually bear…fruit.
We would be remiss if we failed to mention the return of the sourdough breads and other organic grain-based treats of Capitaine Levain. We will also be at Atwater Market again from early July to the end of October. Our market stand there will also serve as a new basket drop-off location this year. We look forward to seeing all of you again, to start a new season and to get back into the swing of vegetable deliveries soon! See you soon.
