This is the the time of year when we go out in the morning with sweater or jacket and possibly even a wool hat. Then as the sun climbs over the trees (assuming its not cool and rainy like today), we tend to shed the layers wherever we are when we suddenly get too hot - maybe in the middle of the pepper row while harvesting or weeding in the carrot bed or while spreading cover crop seed in an onion bed after they've all been harvested. Then as the sun quickly dips low behind the trees in the afternoon we are just as suddenly chilled and we try to remember where we left our layers earlier that day.
Get your Halloween pumpkin this week as part of your share if you'd like!
Please don't forget we are having a garlic planting day on October 13 at 2:00. Come on up if you can - we'd love to have some help to make this task go a little faster!
And fall/winter CSA shares are still available. $306 for 7 items/week Nov-Feb. Its a great deal with lots of great vegetables. See us at market for details.
a few cherry tomatoes
a few green beans
a few dragon tongue beans
a few peppers, green and ripe
winter squash - delicatas this week
celery root i.e. celeriac (its baaaack!)
