COMING SOON: Hard Squashes, Kale, Swiss Chard

Time is flying by now that Fall is here. Days are shorter, and just all we have to do is harvest and clean up. The big slow-down. Since I’ve missed a few blog posts, I’m including photos of the last few weeks here.

In other news, we’ve had two new additions in the cow herd! First came Coral, Garnet’s first calf. She’s a cutie!

Then came Bob Dollar, Juniper’s ninth calf. He’s pretty darn handsome. (If you’re a fan of Annie Proulx, you’ll recognize Bob Dollar from her book, “That Old Ace in the Hole.” I’ve listened to it four times this summer.)

Both pairs are doing great, and the babies are frisky and play together when they’re not sleeping or eating. Check them out!

We’ve harvested the sweet potatoes and are sending them up the hill to Auburn Mountainview’s nice, hot greenhouse to cure. Then we can serve them up for Thanksgiving week!

The tomatoes keep giving, the beans are starting to stop, and soon it will be squash, greens, and potatoes season. Personally I can’t wait for some frosty-sweet kale.
