After a soggy start, our fields are dry and the crops are popping out of the ground with gusto! Has anyone else noticed the triumphant tomatoes this season? We are thrilled that the farm team decided to plant tomatoes this fall. Our favorites this season are the cherry tomatoes, Sungold & Black Cherry, which are packed with flavor and color. In addition, we sowed a few experimental beds of slicer tomato varieties–Sakura, Iron Lady, and Defiant–that are looking bountiful and luscious.
This may seem trivial to some, but we are amped about the latest addition of post harvest equipment. Yes, the glorious red monster of the salad spinner! Trying to battle against washing and waiting for the heaps of greens to dry on the racks was a frustrating process that would often end in farmers cursing their sullied crop damaged by water weight of greens on greens. Now, we have a finer quality crop to show for after washing and are seeking more spinners to add to our fleet.
CSA Members – since the Farm will be closed on Thursday, please remember to pick up your shares on Wednesday this week (if you are a normal Thursday pick-up) and Friday this week (if you normally pick up at Whole Foods).
Enjoy your Thanksgiving and sharing this beautiful nutritious food. We hope you’ll bring your family and friends to our Sunday Market this weekend and show them how you support local farms and community.
See you at the Farm!
