Walking slowly around the farm, it’s obvious that summer’s bounty is beginning to decline.
We’re selling a lot of tomatoes, melons and cucumbers this year through various marketing paths. It’s great to see all this vibrant food moving into the community. Our farm stand has been a wonderful addition. We anticipate staying open until either the weather or lack of product, forces us to close. Thank you all for folding us into your Saturday routine.
The transition from summer’s full heavy crops to the more intense, longer-in-the-ground, cooler-season foods, is happening. Kales and cabbages, beautiful brussels sprouts and feathery fennel and asparagus, are all looking very fresh and new.
This is the time of year things move around in the shops and storage areas to make room for winter squash, onions and shallots.
Additionally this year, Paul is renovating some of his growing fields to make things easier next year.
