Our vegetable are now pre-smoked and come free with bonus earwigs! HA! I'll admit it, it's the time of year I get a little loopy. The farm is still going full force and the kids (and I) want to add dance, bike team and soccer times two to the equation! We have about two more weeks of full speed ahead, and then we can start checking some markets off our "to do" list. The People's Market ends the 20th, Saturday's are over on the 23rd and Driggs goes until the 6th! The CSA is still going strong and we have some seriously heavy shares to go!
We are now in "empty the garden mode". We will keep harvesting all the yummy summer treats until they freeze, but after they are picked each day, we will pull the fall crops as fast as we can until the garden is empty! Beets, onions and carrots are on the schedule for this week. I'm so happy to see a great beet crop this year. Last year's never got weeded and thus, never yielded the way we dreamed. If dreams could weed!
Swiss Chard! I learned something about Swiss Chard today from one of our employees, thanks Jayde! I was in awe of the gorgeous leaves at the market and told her how good the bunches look. She told me she noticed the vibrant color also and did a little research. Turns out Chard gets deeper colors in the fall from the cooler weather. The chard always looked better to me in the fall, but I never put the subtle change of color into words. Check it out this week!
We hope you enjoyed the abundant broccoli, we are happy we planted more! We still have plenty of side shoots to come, but the high point of the harvest is in.
Some folks have been asking about signing up for next season. I almost have the paperwork done. But I am just going to end with a cliff hanger...Exciting changes are in the air. More info soon!
