Newsletter Excerpt

Bob writes… Unless you have a winter share next week is the last week. However, stay tuned for an opportunity to purchase a winter share. We plan and plant for about 1000 20-week shares, 350 12-week shares, and 800 winter shares. Besides the tragedy of Lora’s passing, this year we encountered 2 weather challenges and 1 weather plus. The challenges were the record wet August (which wiped out our carrot and tomatoes crops, amongst others) and an early frost. In any case, with the wet August and with last year’s cool fall and winter share shortage, we stopped selling winter shares early – at 600 shares.

Now, however, with the replantings after the rains and with this exceptionally warm fall, we are now confident that we can offer approx. 100 additional winter shares! And remember, that now, some cool weather and frosts helps the plants out – makes them sweeter. Here is a list of almost for sure winter box contents:
Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, kohlrabi, beets, spinach, collards, kales (including red russian, toscano, winterbor & redbor), and popcorn. And likely the box will contain some of the following: potatoes, radishes, rutabagas, winter squash, arugula, swiss chard, choi, lettuce, and onions. (bolded items are sweetened by cool weather)
These winter shares are delivered over the course of November & early December (skipping Thanksgiving week). They cost $100 (if you already have a winter share and want additional boxes, the cost is $90 each). They are sold on a first-come, first-served basis based on when we receive your clear and definitive order – by phone, email, or mail. Our contact information is Angelic Organics, 1547 Rockton Rd, Caledonia, IL 61011, 815 389 2746, Act fast if you’re interested.
