Farm News – November 6, 2023
Hi All! As expected we were hit quite hard with a freeze last week, three nights in a row with temperatures dipping into the mid 20’s. We harvested a lot of peppers ahead of the cold blast; some green, some ripe, and some in between. They represent the last taste of the summer crops for this season and will be in the shares this week and next (if they hold up well).
For the rest of the share we are relying on root crops, brassica/mustards, and our storage crops. We still have beautiful cauliflowers heading up – purples, yellows, and even some of the other-worldly looking Romanesco. We also have some broccoli, but it is the last large planting and for all members to receive some, it will be in small bunches. We have a small variety of spaghetti squash called Angel Hair. I know that some of you are not fans of spaghetti squash and I wish that I had more of other varieties to share, but for whatever reason this is what has kept the best.
The share will be: Lettuce, radishes, rainbow carrots, fingerling potatoes, garlic, choice of arugula, broccoli raab or other mustard greens, cauliflower, bok choi, broccoli, spaghetti squash, choice of cilantro or parsley and Napa cabbage. Premium shares will also include celery root and Yacon.
The fruit share for this week will be: Pink Lady apples and Bosc pears.
Enjoy! Farmer John
