On the farm this week: And all at once it is winter. We were so blessed by the warmer weather then bang! 9F below and snow to-boot. As you may be thinking that the warm weather is helpful to grow produce, and it is, it can also ruin our winter season. We need our crops to get used to the cold before it really takes over in order for it to survive the winter. Most things did but we definitely lost our turnips in this last cold streak. Oh well, lucky for me and you we have a new greenhouse to fill this winter :) Cheers

We wash everything in your bag but we wash them in bulk so some things may need an extra rinse at home. Please bring your bag back next week so we can re-use them! thanks!
