News From the Farm

This week already marks the half way point of the CSA and the box screams summer. Tomatoes and eggplants are rolling in, the sweet corn is crisp and delicious and we have the fixings for some terrific summer salads. While the box reflects summer, the work on the farm has been centered around the fall for a couple weeks now. I spoke about our major fall brassica planting (which is looking good) and our onion harvest (which is fantastic – we have 1200 some pounds of onions in the cooler and at least that many still curing in the barn). This week we uncovered our winter squash. The plants have been growing under a row cover, which protects them from bugs and weather. The plants look really healthy and if all continues to go well we’ll have acorn and butternut squash as well as pie pumpkins, but not until the final shares.
