Week #19 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

It is looking more and more like fall here, and it feels like it too! Everyone is still working away and adjusting to the cooler 48-degree mornings. (It is much different than the 70-degree mornings we are used to) Now when we listen to the weather, they are talking about pockets of frost! Currently, on the farm, most of the fall cover crops have been planted. Pete Jr. taught Juan how to run the seeder tractor this past week, and Geo now runs the cultivator. (see our Facebook and Instagram for photos) It is an excellent time of year to learn new jobs on the farm. We are so lucky to have such a great team!

This week is the first harvest of Sweet Potatoes. They are Beautiful! They didn’t mind this extremely rainy summer. We are also harvesting the first of the fall turnips. These turnips are called White Bella Luna Turnips. They are a small, beautifully white, and perfectly round turnip. We hope you enjoy this weeks harvest!
