Crop List

These are many of the crops that will go into this year’s crop plan. This list is intended as a guide line to what we plan to grow. We may add or delete different crops at any time.

When making our crop selections, we aim to maximize diversity and grow everything we can. If we don’t grow a specific crop there is good reason. Usually it does not do well in our soils, climate, or we have very challenging issues where the cost out-weighs the benefit.

We always do our best to give you as much variety as our soils and climate will allow.  Many crops, like lettuce, may show up across all seasons and in multiple varieties.  Some of the spring and early summer crops are repeated in late summer and fall. Many of the crops we grow for a summer harvest can’t be repeated in the fall as the light and the weather change. Mother Nature is in charge.

We tend to focus on the common crops we all tend to enjoy, while providing long harvest windows, staggered varieties, and consistency within.

CSA’s are known for introducing Members to new or obscure items they may not have chosen on their own, and promoting heirloom or uncommon vegetables. We do offer this, but also do our best to not inundate you with them. We aim to provide as much choice with in these areas.

Cucumbers, Summer Squashes (Zucchini), Melons, Greens (Kales, Collards, Swiss Chard), Salad Greens (Spinach, *Lettuces, Arugula), Peppers (Sweet and Hot), Eggplant, Alliums (Onions, Garlic, Leeks, Scallions), **Tomatoes, Herbs, Winter Squash (Butternut, Acorn, Kabocha, Spaghetti, Sweet Dumpling), Broccoli, Cabbages (Red, Green, Napa, Savoy), Root crops (Carrots, Beets, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes) and much more.

*Lettuce generally equals Romaine, Butter, Bibb, Oak Leaf, Curly Leaf, Summer Crisp. Thus Lettuce is available almost every week with a new tasty variety.

**Tomato generally equals Cherry, Heirloom, Roma, Classic Round Slicing, Pear & Grape, Canning Tomatoes and more.

**Tomatoes are usually get planted in 4-6 different intervals with staggered timing to maximize variety and lengthen the harvest window. The same is true with Peppers, Melons, Cucumbers, Greens, Squashes, Onions, etc.
