2010 Fall Share, Week Five

October 30, 2010 newsletter

This week's harvest:

Daikon Radish
Sweet Potatoes
Butternut Squash
Red Mustard
Salad Turnips
Sweet & Hot Peppers

This week's farm news:

First of all, we need to remind all of you that this (today) is the last Saturday of the season that this farmer's market will be here in Richland Park. We understand that there are plans of moving the market just down the road to a bank parking lot for the month of November. (And maybe even indoors for the rest of the winter - more on that later.) However, we will be back at our old location (the Nashville Friends Meeting House on the corner of 26th Ave. and Torbett, just off Charlotte) for the remainder of the fall share. The pick-up time will remain the same: 8am to 12pm.

Our intern season is winding down for the year. This past week was Ben's last here on the farm. Jesse and Beth will each only be with us for a few more weeks. It's bittersweet when it comes time for our interns to depart... We have made good friends so it's sad to see them go, but we get to look forward to hearing about their next adventure in life. Ben is heading to a farm in Nicaragua for a few months. Beth is looking to purchase her own farm in the Chattanooga area A.S.A.P. And Jesse wants to spend another season with us in Bugtussle (yeah!) leading next year's intern crew and wading a little deeper into the farm scene. We can't thank them enough for all of their hard work & dedication throughout the season. Now's the time for us, the Bugtussle-year-rounders, to take a deep breath, reflect upon a great season, and throw another log on the fire.
