This week's farm news:

It was nice to get back to the farm after our family vacation. The gardens all look so beautiful. The cover and forage crops are growing and getting lush. The forest is beginning to be kissed with the colors of autumn. Ahhhh! As much as we relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the beach, we were all ready to come home. We are so, so, so grateful to Jesse and Hannah for taking such good care of the farm - even when faced with some challenges during their second week on the farm by themselves! (And for being champions and dealing so expertly with those challenges and not calling us at the beach and worrying us! The means a great deal to us!)

Now that we are back, we are ready to tackle one of our final big garden projects for the season - digging the sweet potatoes! Next week you'll have some in your baskets!
