2012 Fall Season, week 8

November 17, 2012

This week's harvest:
"Oak Leaf" Lettuce
"Hakurei" Salad Turnips
Daikon Radish
Sweet Potatoes

This week's farm news:

Another week in Bugtussle just zipped right on by... leaving us (already!) at the final fall share delivery for the season. Thank you all so much for your participation and support. We plan to begin making winter vegetable deliveries in early December so keep a look out for our emails! (After today, this market moves to the indoor space across the street - in the "Love" building behind and across the street from McDonald's.)

This week was quite a bit colder than we've had yet this autumn. Several nights in a row of freezes in the twenties. This proved to be pretty hard on the heads of cauliflower, even though we had it protected with heavy row cover. So the cauliflower you are getting today has a bit of frost damage so you'll want to eat it soon! Frost damage or not, thought, it is absolutely delicious. It's been a few years since we've had a successful crop of cauliflower so for us, it is a real treat!

We want to wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and we look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!

Many blessings to you all!
