November 20, 2010 newsletter

This week's harvest:

Butternut Squash
Sweet Potatoes
Salad Turnips
"Little Gem" Lettuce
Swiss Chard
Choose between: Arugula, Mizuna, and Red Mustard

This week's farm news:

So today may wrap up this year's fall share (boy, that went fast!) but there's no need to bemoan having to go back to the grocery story for your winter produce. We plan to bring fresh veggies to Nashville 3 times in December (the 4th, the 11th, & the 18th - please see our sign-up sheet for these dates plus watch for our emails) and then twice a month for the rest of the winter. Baskets will cost $23/small and $36/medium. There's a lot to look forward to: spinach, kale, Swiss chard, leeks, parsnips, celery, lettuce, and continued mixed greens, sweet potatoes, & butternut squash.

When the Smith family returns home from Nashville today, the farm is going to be a much quieter place. Jesse and Beth are each on their way to their next destinations. We completed our last harvest as a group on Thursday... Once they get to where they're going and after they have a nice (very long) hot shower, we hope they will look back & remember this season fondly! We surely will!
