2014 Fall Season, week 1

October 4, 2014

This week's harvest:
Sweet Potatoes
Sweet Dumpling Winter Squash
Greens choice (between Arugula, Mizuna, Lettuce Mix, or Turnip Greens)
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers
Patty Pan Summer Squash

This week's farm news:

Welcome to this year's fall share! It's crazy to be kicking off this first week with watermelons but oh, well... I'm sure no one will mind! We have had very dry conditions on the farm... With this cold front that is moving in, we did receive about 1/2 an inch. Certainly, we would love a bit more than that though!

The big project on the farm recently has been digging the sweet potatoes. We have just three rows (of 15) to go and that task will be complete for another year. The crop seems good and bountiful, which is such a blessing. And nothing marks the arrival of fall for my family quite like that first baked sweet potato fresh out of the oven. Yum, yum!

The summer crops are winding down for sure. This week might very well be the last of the tomatoes so enjoy them while they last! Have a great week!
