CSA pick up November 18

And just like that it's winter.   That means that everything that was in the fields, is now safely tucked away in temperature controlled sheds, and the farmers who are still growing produce in greenhouses just saw a huge increase in their cost of production. Think of your heating bill and what it's about to do this month. Now imagine that your house was made of metal rings and your total insulation consisted of a double layer of plastic.  You would expect that this month's heating bill would be quite substantial.  And you would be right. Our 3 growers who still have their greenhouses on will see their monthly bills go up and the size of their greens and tomatoes go down.  Neva Hydroponics from whom we purchase lettuce and basil have artificial lights to allow their greens to still reach size throughout the dark winter months.  Murray who grows tomatoes for us gives in part way through the winter and shuts down his greenhouse in about 2-3 weeks.  For him, it would take too large of an investment to add artificial lighting to his greenhouse to keep the tomatoes going year round.  The tomatoes would grow so slowly in the winter that he would have to expand his greenhouses 5 fold to make the economics work to stay open year round.  And he doesn't want to do that.  Doug and Adele who also grow greens for us, have decided to experiment, partly because of our winter CSA, and are keeping their greenhouse on all winter this year.  They have no artificial lighting and they are hoping to be able to provide microgreens to us every second week, and larger greens to us every second week.   The days of multiple bunches of kale are about to end!
