Final Week of the Main Season!
By Charis Lindrooth
Just for fun, the Farmer and his daughter set up a tent on a sunny afternoon - a perfect way to savor the last few warm days.
These October days have been downright balmy. In fact, this is the longest pepper season on record for the farm. For those of you keeping tabs on the First Frost Bet between the Farmer and the Farmer’s Wife, it might end up as a tie. That’s because we have had a tiny bit of frost, but not a hard frost. The only thing damaged so far is the dahlias, which do not tolerate it a bit. Of course, I plan to make the Farmer his chicken and dumplings regardless - he has earned a favorite meal!
As I sit here writing this post, the sky is grey and a gentle Sunday rain only makes the blue-green stripes of kale, cabbage and broccoli in the fields below more striking. The autumn leaves are more muted this season, perhaps due to the warmer temperatures. Crickets are still chirping at night and we are enjoying many migratory bird sightings, as the farm is positioned right under their journey path.
The Main Season flew by as quickly as these birds in flight. One more box, and then we turn to the Fall Share. We are grateful to all who have joined the Fall Share; your participation makes all the difference to us as we wind up our year. We couldn’t do it without you.
