COMING SOON: Green Beans, Lettuce, Peppers, Basil

I’m not going to talk about how I’ve missed the last eight weeks of blog posts. Farm life has been crazy. Busier than a normal summer, because those of us who are here have been working very long hours to keep all the summer crops thriving and harvested, as well as getting the winter crops established. August is the busiest month, and in a few weeks it will wind down. I’ll just add that we’ve learned a lot about hiring field workers for next year.

This is week 10 of 12 in our Summer Season. If you haven’t enrolled for Fall, I highly recommend it. Fall is my favorite—lots of fruiting crops, plus all the hearty crops of October: Squashes start coming in another month, frost-tinged greens, juicy root crops. And we still have plenty of time to enjoy the shelling beans and tomatoes and peppers.

Please email me to sign up for Fall, or pick up a paper application. The Fall season encompasses all of September and October and lasts 8 weeks. Our Winter season covers November and December, until the Holidays happen.

And, since I haven’t blogged in six weeks (gasp!) here is a recap of the summer bounty:
