We had great weather, a nice turnout, and a delicious spread of food for our CSA member farm tour and potluck! I sadly forgot to take pictures, which is something I actually forget to do every year. Thanks to everyone for coming!

We were so ready for the change in weather and have been loving these past few sunny and mild days. On Friday, before the cold front moved through, we finished up our sweet potato harvest. We got the final sweet potatoes out just before the rain settled in which was nice, but unfortunately for us, we still had things to pick. With a frost advisory in effect for the weekend, we wanted to pick some peppers for CSA and basil and beans for market before the crops got toasted. We scouted for any remaining peppers while rain dripped from our hat brims and lugged our crates of peppers through the increasingly muddy fields. While I’m grateful for the rain, I’m a farmer and can’t help but complain that it could have waited a couple hours! The crew got dry and headed home and Ben and I remained out in the field. Tomatoes were also on the list but we ran out of daylight. Fortunately for us, on Monday the tomatoes were still alive! So we pulled another 350 lbs of maters off the plants for CSA. Hard to believe we’ll have tomatoes in both week 21 and week 22 of the CSA! Savor these last few tomatoes!
