By the beginning of September, we are sharing winter squash AND summer sweet corn with our CSA members. In addition to the tasty shishitos, homegrown artichokes, #variety gorgeous red leaf lettuce, and perfectly stuffable Hungarian Cheese peppers, we included a new leafy green: Ethiopian Kale or Amara. #bialasfarms#mealplan#lovemycsa#eatyourveggies#eatfresheatlocal

The FarmGirl has been busy this winter and spring! There's no end in sight, but perhaps there's a bit of down time to read... Thank you to John DeSanto and Brenda Gilhooly for putting this article together.

Cheers to everyone who came out for @alloveralbany’s event with Craig Gravina last night! 🍻 And huge thanks to @slidindirtyschenectady and @cocobar_schenectady for making the beer pairing so tasty! 😋 (And extra thanks to @alloveralbany for the photo!)
SHHH! 🤫 Please don’t tell Farmer Doris that The FarmGirl snuck a few sprigs of her prized micro#basil 🌱to garnish last night’s “kitchen sink” red coconut curry.
Our Pre-packed CSA Farm Shares include pick-your-own fresh herbs all season long. We grow almost 20 types of culinary herbs outdoors and in our greenhouses so members can add some zing to all of their dishes. #bialasfarms#freshisbest#herbs#freshbasil

When the snow that fell at night melts clean away the next day, you know spring and garden season are right around the corner. The robins and goldfinches and kildeer are flitting about searching for food and for mates! Time to make a decision re: Farm Shares. We have large and small weekly "Farmers Choice" options as well as a "Free Choice" declining balance option. Check out our website (link in profile) and get those applications in to us pronto (you may also pay online if you prefer). Spots are filling up quickly now. #bialasfarms#farmshare#farmlife#seasonalfood#shoplocal#locallygrown
Little “lunchbox” peppers are the sweet treat we see folks snack on when they come to the Farm stand. Pepper plants are only a few inches tall right now, but they’ll be in the ground by mid-May. #bialasfarms#peppers#snack#eatfresheatlocal
Sometimes mistakes are marvelous. This weekend’s special flavor is Old School Mint, a mixture of fresh mint and anise. It’s bright and refreshing, and reminds me of the candies my great grandfather always had in his pocket. Minus the lint. Get some this weekend! #icecream#icecreamcone#minticecream#anise

Dreaming of June and the first few weeks of our CSA. Full of the leafy greens we’ve been craving all winter, it’s like a honeymoon salad... “lettuce alone” with our veggies! It’s been too long! #farmshare#csa information click link in profile. #bialasfarms#eatfresheatlocal
