2011 Fall Season, Week 2

October 1, 2011

This week's harvest:

Salad Turnips and Greens
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers
Acorn Squash
Butternut Squash

This week's farm news:

Well, we survived! (At least so far!) A whole week went by, and the farm didn't burn down, the animals are all accounted for, and we even made it to market with your veggies! Actually, it was a very calm week. We've had some cooler temperatures and some rain, but the big news is that we started digging SWEET POTATOES! We were eager to get them out of the ground, since they need to undergo a curing process before they are fully ready to show up in your baskets. So GET EXCITED!

Although we have definitely enjoyed the peace and quiet on the farm this week, it is just not quite the same without the family. They are an essential part of what makes Bugtussle BUGTUSSLE - and so are YOU! Meeting all of you and connecting with your lives and your families is a huge motivation to us for starting our own farm someday. This was an absolute LIFE-CHANGING year for us both, and we cannot thank you enough for being part of it.
