One more week of deliveries left for our regular 2011 CSA season. We have a few weeks of winter storage and extended season shares to harvest in November and then it’s planning time. I am already looking forward to next year!
The last week is always a sad one for us, when we say goodbye to our great worker members who have dedicated time each week during the season to help us keep the farm running smoothly. After 20 weeks of dedicated work, all of these workers have earned the title of “farmers” . They have worked hard through many conditions, heat and humidity in particular! We have looked forward to seeing their smiling faces every week!
(Speaking of heat; Zach, really…all those hot peppers you ate in the field without blinking an eye..it hurt, right?)
Last Sunday we had what is not quite our last farm event; a very spontaneous and short noticed campfire and tin-foil dinner party. It started when we thought that everyone should enjoy a nice view of fall from the hill on the farm. I hope you all got to walk the whole farm!
The dinners were scrumptious! Thanks to all who helped with the chopping. There are lots of pictures on our Facebook page, but here are a few.
The next event will be a hoop-house raising, when we hopefully erect our large new hoop-house that we will use for growing cool-weather crops and for getting an early start on some others. We are looking for handy volunteers in early November! Let us know if you want to join the fun! We will feed you and possibly even entertain you!
