2009 Fall Season, Week Seven

November 21, 2009

This week's harvest:

sweet potatoes
butternut squash
turnips w/greens (these turnips are best for cooking)
daikon radish - free choice

This week's farm news:

Well folks, today wraps up this year's fall share! We thank all of you so much for your ongoing support! We are planning to bring vegetables to Nashville the 5th and 12th of December also. (We haven't decided about Saturday the 19th yet.) If you know that you would like a basket either (or both!) of those days, you can let us know by email (if you didn't sign the list). Small baskets will be $20 and mediums will be $35. We would be honored to continue feeding you & your families our farm-fresh goodies throughout the winter!

Life on the farm is really beginning to slow down now. We can see the seasons moving from fall to winter. Very few leaves remain on the trees now. We are spending much more time tending & stoking fires & eating lots of sweet potatoes hot from the wood cookstove! The shorter days are beginning to limit the amount of outdoor project time we have each day -- just in time for the surge of seed catalogs that are arriving in our mailbox daily... Time for sitting back with a hot cup of tea & dreaming about the ripe, juicy tomatoes of summer. There's so much to be thankful for!
