Little Friends at the Farm
A Note from the Farmer's Wife
This week the Farm hosted a large group of very enthusiastic Kindergarteners from a local Waldorf school. The kids were thrilled to pick carrots and then race after the potato plow picking up potatoes...and lots of earth worms! A chance to climb on the tractor and eat local apples topped the event. We hope to host more on-farm educational events, and would be interested in your ideas and suggestions.

It Just Gets Sweeter
A Note from the Farmer's Wife
While I am still mourning the departure of the tomatoes, I have to tell you that in some ways the best of the harvest is yet to come. Often by now we have had our first frost, and Jack will probably make his arrival in the coming week. The colder nights and sunny days signal many crops to store sugar. Carrots, cabbage and kale become sweeter, while radishes and spicy greens develop a more complex flavor without abusing the palate. Bitter departs and sweetness follows. I'm sure I could wax philosophical about this natural phenomenon, perhaps somehow comparing it to Farmers in the winter, but I will refrain, in case one reads this.
Our main season ends the final week of October. If you haven't signed on yet for November, please consider doing so. Not only do the veggies get sweeter, but they also get larger - more bang for your buck. We depend on our fall share enrollment to help us purchase fall amendments for our fields.
