The busy season at the farm is beginning. We’re spending time and money on sowing seeds, greasing gears, sorting through spreadsheets, and greening up greenhouses. It’s that time of year when the farm has to buy all the stuff it needs to grow seedlings, buy or fix equipment, and prepare the fields for planting and harvest.
This work is the raw material we farmers put together each year to build the foundation for a great harvest. You can invest in the success of our work by joining 2018 Main Season CSA today. Your member shares are a crucial part of our yearly building process. Join the effort! Get your share of the 2018 Main Season CSA by signing up right here:
FULL SHARE ($500)
HALF SHARE ($250)

I’m so excited that after 16 years of growing vegetables; first trying to make all our own potting mix, then buying it from Vermont and feeling the pain in our wallets every year, then buying from New York, but dealing with all the plastic bags it comes in and negotiating convoluted ways to get it shipped for less money………FINALLY! We can buy organic potting mix from our friends RIGHT HERE in RI!
We’re hoping to get our first sling bag from the Compost Plant in the next couple weeks. It’s time to start the onions, and leeks, and some of the herbs and flowers that we’ll be growing for you this year. Sign up now for your main season CSA to pay early bird prices and help us make sure we get all the thing we need when we need them for a great season.
We have passed the halfway point of our early winter CSA, so I thought that while I sit here getting a fire going, I’d remind folks about our early spring CSA!
popcorn cobs are great kindling.
Many of our members bought winter CSA shares with us, which includes the early winter and early spring mini csa’s. If you did that, don’t worry, you’re in!
But if you didn’t, we have shares available! You can pay with cash, check or on the paypal. Info is here.
If you like your veggies, sign up to keep getting them right through the winter.
It starts next week folks! Our Winter CSA is your answer to bland store-bought kale and carrots that taste like cardboard, so make sure you get in on the fun. If you’d still like a share but haven’t gotten around to reserving one, drop what you’re doing and sign up today (or contact us to reserve a spot):
Winter CSA 2017-2018
We are gearing up for the start of our early winter CSA. This will run from Sunday November 12 through the end of the year (weather and holiday depending we might go into 2018) For more info, like pricing, etc. go to https://redplanetvegetables.com/winter-csa-2017-2018/
Big news is that we are changing the day and location for pick ups in Providence. How about 3 til 5 at the clean, spacious, lovely World’s Fair Gallery at the Columbus Theater?and when you come to pick up your share you will see the gorgeous installation by Kelli Rae Adams, which was made with some of our vegetables!
Pick ups at the farm will be on MONDAYS starting November 13, from 4 to 6.
Don’t let the time of the pick ups keep you from joining. If you have questions email me at redplanetvegetables@gmail or text me at 401-273-0914.
Thank you to everyone who has signed up already!
On this beautiful Fall day, it’s easy to forget that our winter share is just weeks away now. Down on the farm, we have lots of greens and other good things coming along nicely as we continue to plant new stuff every day.
First off, big ups to all of you who have joined the CSA so far! You are right up there with sunshine and rainfall on our list of things that help the farm. Thank you.
If you haven’t yet reserved a share, how about doing it this week, or maybe even right now? You, yes you, can be a ray of sunshine. Sign up and pay instantly right here on our Info Page. There are other useful details on there as well for those who may need more info. Or maybe you’ve got a friend or co-worker who might be interested: share our page with them!
Of course, if you just want to arrange payment via email, snail mail, phone, ravens or whatever, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 401-273-0914
Hey everybody, with autumn blowing in, we want to invite you to grab a share of our cold weather harvest. We’ve added a couple pick-up dates, so our winter CSA starts a little earlier this year and will run a little longer on both ends of the calendar.
This year, we’ve got two share types available:
EARLY WINTER SHARE (7 weeks): $175
In mid-November through early January, our wintertime CSA offers up piles of fresh spinach, arugula, kale, mustards, collards, bok choi, lettuce, radishes, scallions, fresh herbs, broccoli, plus our Fall-harvested storage crops like carrots, turnips, potatoes, and winter squash.
FULL WINTER SHARE (14 weeks): $320
After a much-needed mid-winter break, our CSA traditionally starts up again in early March to send you into Spring with seven more weeks of greens, herbs and roots. This share option offers a bit of a deal for those who want to sign up all at once for both an Early and Late Winter CSA share.
Here’s our Winter CSA Page with all the details.
Winter growing is kind of a big project, but it’s pretty fun and the results are worth it. As we continue to expand and improve our cold weather harvest so we can offer more and better produce, your membership really helps us make it all come together in the best way possible. Go join now!
We are still nailing down exact pickup days and times for the season, and working on a new and improved Providence pick-up location. As usual, watch this space for further details and updates.
