Every October I compose a letter to CSA members, reflecting back on the season that is ending as a way of preparing for the season ahead. When it comes to 2020, however, where to even begin? The world looks nothing like it did a mere nine months ago! Not only that, everything is still in flux. It’s anyone’s guess what the end of 2020 will look like, so it feels premature to start looking for takeaways. Nevertheless, the fields have their calendar to follow, and we must attend. Empty beds must be cover cropped, fall roots must be harvested, and in another month, we will plant garlic.

Just Keep Planting

November 27, 2020

By this time last year, winter had affirmatively arrived. The ground had frozen solid and all of our winter crops were carefully packed away. Our storage units are nothing fancy or high tech—a cold room with an AC, a walk-in cooler with a fan, and a trailer with a space heater—but they maintained a safe 32°–50° range, which was all we asked. The outside cold, however, complicated winter share pickup preparations. With thousands of pounds of food to distribute, the job of pulling everything out of storage and onto the tables could easily take hours. Ideally, I would start a day or two ahead of time, but with overnight lows dipping into the low twenties—meaning that anything left on the tables overnight would freeze—this was out of the question.
