2010/2011 Winter Share, Basket 4

January 29, 2011

This week's harvest:
Salad Turnips
Sweet Potatoes
Butternut Squash

This week's farm news:

Hi again lovely vegetable eaters! We've finally made the trip to Nashville after several attempts! Boy, the timing of this winter's inclimate weather had been precisely at the wrong time for us to be able to harvest and make the journey to town. We hope that by now your appetites are hankering for some Bugtussle goodness!

Even though the winter has provided us with lots of "weather," we've been enjoying ourselves! We've got sugar maple trees tapped and are actively cooking down the sap into delicous maple syrup, we have hickory-smoked (and are enjoying immensely) the bacon from last year's hogs, we have hosted/interviewed (on the farm) three potential interns for next season, one of which is definitely joining the Bugtussle crew(!), and we've placed the biggest portion of our seed order and can feel springtime's pull even though it's still the middle of winter!!
