2013 Fall Season, week 6

November 9, 2013

This week's harvest:
Sweet Potatoes
Butternut Squash
Sweet Peppers

This week's farm news:

The strong winds in the week shook lots more leaves from the trees. The landscape is beginning to have the feel of winter. We dug the remainder of our fall carrots (which are in your baskets today) and they are awesome! We were kind of blown away by their size! These are our winter storage carrots, so we put most of them into our cellar in bins of sand. Our children love fresh carrots so we love having them available for fresh wintertime snacking!

Otherwise the week was spent keeping up with chores, adjusting to the time change, keeping the fires going, and cooking lots and lots of amazing food... the fruit of our season's labors. It feels so good to be winding down and restoring our bodies with nourishing food and ample rest. These days are good. We hope you, too, are enjoying the season, keeping warm, and eating lots of hearty meals...
