Weekly & Bi-Weekly Shares

Big picture

If you find you can't make it during the pick up time, please let us know and we can

arrange a Friday visit. If you are not feeling well, we can bring your share out to your

car to facilitate social distancing. Just give us a call at 330-549-9408.

Have any CSA news you want to tell us about or would you like to suggest a recipe?

As always, thank you for supporting Goodness Grows!

Final Bi-Weekly Pick-up of 2020!

THANK YOU for a great season!

It is so hard to believe that CSA season ends today for our Bi-Weekly Subscribers
and next week for the Weekly folks!

In this very unusual year, you all have definitely been a huge bright spot for all of us at GG!
Thank you for your support of Goodness Grows. By participating in our produce subscription program, you are making a difference in the lives of our clients and staff as well as our
students (who will hopefully be able to return in the spring) and our volunteers. The fee
helps us to continue running and improving our programs. The work that goes into providing
the shares each week gives countless teaching and learning opportunities for people of all abilities. What might just look like a basket of produce and goodies is really a basket of learning, growth, and fun! We hope you have enjoyed the experience as much as we have.
Info about next year's CSA will be sent out in the late winter/early spring,
in case you are interested in subscribing again.

The Stages of a CSA Share

In This Week's Share

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Watermelon Quarter



Hydroponic Lettuce




Hungarian Hot Wax Peppers

Black Beauty Tomatoes


Decorative Corn & Gourds

Apples (Blondee & Red Free from Huffman Fruit Farm)

PLUS ~ 1 Bonus Veggie! ~ We have an assortment of Broccoli, Eggplant, Ground Cherries, Woolly Kate Tomatoes, Mustard Greens, and Tomatillos. You will get to pick one of these as a bonus this week.

Number of crops ready and amount of harvest of a given crop varies throughout the season. We will provide at least six items each week. If we have any issues, we'll supplement with produce from other local farms. Some weeks will include value added items, such as a special crop from another farm, Jungle Jam, Zucchini Bread, or Homemade Spaghetti Sauce.


Celery: The Best Ways to Pick It, Cook It, and Eat It

"Ah, the humble stalk of celery: Both hyped and derided as the ultimate diet food, celery is actually a surprisingly valuable player in your pantry’s stockpile. While it might not often play a starring role in a dish, it’s such a fundamental part of many dishes that the French consider it part of their holy trinity, and plenty of dishes just wouldn’t taste the same without it. Here’s everything you need to know — and a few things you may be surprised to learn — about celery."

This article (link in the blue title above this paragraph) is full of tons of great celery info.


Apples are delicious year-round, but are especially delightful in the fall. We're lucky here in the valley to have so many fantastic farm markets and apple orchards that have a wide array of apples to fit all tastes! If you are looking for something a little different to try with your apples, check out these ideas.
