What we're up to:

Welcome to the Fall CSA! We appreciate you all supporting us this season and are excited to feed you for the next two months! This week on the farm we pulled our onions and winter squash for curing in our old greenhouse for a few weeks. We also mowed and raked out the potato plants to make them easier to harvest on monday. It feels good to start pulling plants and feeling the cool breeze on our faces rather than beads of sweat. Our tomato plants are slowing down and we pulled most of our cucumbers as well. Moving into fall greens and brassicas is always a welcomed change. pictures from the farm
