2016 Pre-season Committment

A collective “Thank You” to the hard-working growers, faithful members,  dedicated organizers and generous volunteers for another successful season, feeding and caring for each other!  

The Fredericksburg Area CSA Project (FACSAP) is offering current members the opportunity to reserve your share for the 2016 Harvest Season. This guarantees your spot in next year’s harvest. The 2016 Season, like this year, is expected to span 20 weeks (running late May through late September/early October) with distribution on Thursday evenings.

As participation in the CSA is on a first come-first served basis, this pre-season commitment along with a $100 deposit** guarantees you will receive a share next year. If you would like to reserve your Harvest Share, please return the form (available by clicking on the link below) and deposit by the end of October 2015.

Keep in mind that your winter squashes (including acorn and butternut squash) store very well.  I’ve kept them in a cooler room of my house for months without any problems and they taste so delicious in the cold of winter!

You can use magda squash like you would any other summer squash, just cut the seeds out of the middle first if it is one of the bigger ones.  Maybe try it in this recipe for a classic french ratatouille: http://www.tastingtable.com/cook/recipes/how-to-make-ratatouille-french-ratatouille-recipe-eggplant-ratatouille-recipe.
