Harvest Event – Green Bean Pick

August 2, 2018


[ NOTE: Our CSA Newsletter included incorrect content regarding the sweet corn and green bean harvest shares for the 2018 season.  CSA members will be welcomed out into the field to pick their shares this season.  The green pick is currently going on, see details below.  Stay tuned for details on the sweet corn pick.   ]

Next Harvest Event – Green Bean Pick

The green bean field will be open to all CSA members starting this Saturday, August 4th throughout the entire week and next weekend.  Members are welcome to visit the green bean field from 8am to dusk Saturday, August 4th through Sunday, August 12th.  This harvest event is while supplies last.

Directions to the green bean picking field:
County Road 42 to Biscayne Avenue, go south ½ block to Boulder Trail and turn right (heading west) if you hit gravel road you’ve gone too far, follow around to the cul-de- sac.
OR
160th street (County Road 46) to Biscayne Avenue, go north ¾ of a mile to Boulder Trail (paved road), take a left and follow to the end of the cul-de- sac.

We received rain today so please park in the street if the field is wet, or you will get stuck.  Please park, walk 100 yards to the south and follow the signs to the bean field.   If it dries up you are welcome to hop the curb and drive back to the field.

There will be no restroom facilities at this field location (not even a biffy), please plan accordingly!

    I have not done the harvest share before. Is there an additional charge for these?

    • Chris KaufenbergAugust 10, 2016 at 9:25 am #

      There is no additional charge for the harvest share! Each CSA membership receives either a 1/2 bushel of green beans or 4 dozen sweet corn.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful boxes! I signed up to pick up beans, but I cannot remember which day I signed up for (I think I’m getting old). I believe it was Wed, Aug 17; is that correct?

    • Chris KaufenbergAugust 10, 2016 at 9:19 am #

      That is correct, we will have your beans available for pick up on Wednesday, August 17th!

    Can we ask for extra at an additional charge?

    • Chris KaufenbergAugust 10, 2016 at 9:37 am #

      Absolutely, please send requests for additional harvest shares via email to chrisk@pahls.com. Thanks!

    These shares are awesome! Do you have an idea of how long the canning/freezing seminar will last?

    • Chris KaufenbergAugust 12, 2016 at 10:47 am #

      It shouldn’t be more than an hour or so. We will go through Grandma Pahl’s freezing sweet corn recipe and then open it up to questions. We will also have handouts available for how to preserve green beans and tomatoes.

    Hi! Have you posted the freezing recipes anywhere? We were out of town this week but would like to freeze the corn and beans.

    • Chris KaufenbergAugust 14, 2016 at 12:05 pm #

      Thanks for your question Wendy. Please check your email, I sent over the handouts from yesterday’s seminar on freezing sweet corn and green beans. These can also be found here on our website by following these links, http://www.pahls.com/csa-member-updates/recipes/freezing-green-beans/, http://www.pahls.com/csa-member-updates/recipes/freezing-sweet-corn/, http://www.pahls.com/csa-member-updates/freezing-tomatoes/, http://www.pahls.com/csa-member-updates/canning-tomatoes-2/. Also, there is a lot of great information about food preservation on both the National Center for Home Food Preservation website, http://nchfp.uga.edu and the University of Minnesota extension office, http://www.extension.umn.edu/food.

    I keep missing the events in the email. Must read better. I just signed up for corn – I hope it’s not too late. We really love the teaser share this year. It’s just the right amount for 2 people. We are finding it much easier to use up everything each week and not have it go to waste. Great variety too. Thanks Pahls!!

    • Chris KaufenbergAugust 15, 2016 at 1:02 pm #

      Great to hear you are enjoying the teaser share! It is not too late, we did receive your order and will have your corn available for pick up here at Pahl’s on the 19th! Thanks!

    Hello, Can you send me the handouts for freezing corn and tomato canning? Thank you very much!

    • Chris KaufenbergAugust 17, 2016 at 10:28 am #

      On their way!
