Local Box Oct 12-16

This Week’s Box Contents & Local Items

With cooler weather (yes, 90 is cooler) farmers are getting excited about the coming crops. For the first time in a while they’re able to grow delicate leafy greens & more sensitive items. Pedro from My Father’s Farm (name of the farm, not my dad’s farm) brought in some tender and sweet baby bok choy to show us. We can’t wait for more!

2009 has seen more fruit in Central Texas than ever before. Local apples are coming in abundance and will be in the Local Box. The first variety we’re receiving is Gala, but more are coming soon. I suppose a silver lining of Climate Change is that with fewer early and late season frosts, we get to enjoy things like apples and avocados.

Here’s what’s available from local farms on our website this week (the best selection of local produce in the state – guaranteed):
