Farm notes:
This week marked our final field planting. We had a few flats of head lettuce and salad mix to plant and enlisted the help of our flower harvester and bouquet maker, Brooke, to get the job done. The greenhouse is now empty, circulating and vent fans turned off. It is hard to believe that the greenhouse will remain empty until the end of February when we will start next year’s onion seedlings. It is also hard to believe there was once a time when the greenhouse was so full of flats, we were strapped for space. But the brisk air, shorter days, cool nights and changing landscape are all daily reminders that the summer season, the season of a packed greenhouse, marathon planting days, and endless weeding jobs is coming to a close. At the same time, the vegetable harvest is still going strong. We love fall for this reason: a slightly decreased work load with an abundance of vegetables still coming out of the land. We hope you will enjoy all the unique varieties of turnips, kohlrabi, greens and radishes we grow as much as we do!
