*I can’t believe this is the last week of the regular season! 19 weeks flew by! Thank you all so much for being a part of the farm this year. We hope you have enjoyed your vegetables and a deeper connection to the source of your food. For those of you continuing on for the late season, I will continue to write blog posts, and if you will not be participating in the late season and would rather not receive the blog then all you need to do is scroll down your email to the bottom and hit the unsubscribe button…thank you!

**We hope you can make it to our end of the season Harvest Celebration! Here are the details…
Saturday, October 17th (This Saturday!)
Noon to 4pm
Potluck from Noon to 1pm (or as long as the food lasts!)
Hayride tours begin about 1pm….
We’ll be pressing apple cider, and Elizabeth Lutz will be offering some face painting for young and beyond.
You can pick out your pumpkin, although we did need to harvest them this year, as they were all ready so early with this warm season we have had.
Please come share the day with us, so we can say thank you for sharing in this amazing season!

IMGP5937 It was another beautiful day out at the farm for the last CSA harvest of the regular season. The photo above shows some newly seeded cover crop being irrigated, and the photo above that shows the changing leaves, the backdrop to the farm these crisp fall days. I wanted to share with you a gorgeous photo that Winter Green Farmer DJ sent in of the field houses on the home farm…
Image 2The field houses extend the season for our farmer’s markets and have been cleared of their summer crops and are now seeded with fall and winter vegetables. Some of the crew was busy harvesting your turnips when I visited the farm yesterday…

IMGP5931While the other half of the crew harvested your leeks…

 We are so thankful that we had such an amazing growing season, and hope you all enjoyed sharing in the bounty with us! You not only supported a local farm, but you let us choose your food each week, a task we take very seriously. You got to share in the abundance of our crops this year, and I hope you feel connected to the season in a way you might not have, had you not been a part of this CSA.
When people talk about the growing season this year, or the weather, you can say from experience that it was a good one! You know that it was a great pepper year, and that you had more eggplant then you ever had before (or wanted for some of you!) but there is something special about being a part of a community surrounding a farm, and your support helps us to continue to do this work that we feel passionate about, as a way to positively impact our community and the planet. You are all a part of this farm and we say farewell to some of you, but we hope to see you again next year for whatever that season may bring!

 Take care and enjoy your last box of goodness from the farm!
