Goodbye Flowers, Hello Winter Greens!

img_3957.jpg

After a snap of summer, we’re looking at snow in the 7-day forecast.  

We took this week to get bulk carrots and daikon radish harvested, beds prepped for winter’s rest, and over-all tidying of the farm fields.

The flowers by the greenhouse have been pulled (I know—I was sad, too!) to make way for cover crops, but there are still some flowers to be picked by the solar panels, that will stick around for Monday.

Soon, though, we’ll turn our flower clippers in for wooden spoons and adorn the kitchen table with soups instead of bouquets.

It’s been a steady summer and fall season, and we’re grateful to you for sharing in the harvest with us.

Though summer flowers are getting pulled, winter greens are growing well in the hoop house and greenhouse.  Some will be harvested for this share, and others will wait for winter, when we’ll be offering a Winter CSA!

We’ll send out more information about that soon, but know that we’ll have fresh greens, plus roots and more for you come January.

This week’s harvest:

  • Mesclun
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Onions
  • Kohlrabi
  • Kale
  • Herb choice: thyme, oregano, sage

See recipes below.

Have a cozy weekend!

In Good Heart,
Kate & Edge
