This is our last week of shares ( except for the 2 week extension for those of you who bought in to that). It’s been a blast and a half to see you all and hear the excitement when you pick up your basket.
We will still have lots of produce (at least until we freeze hard, then things will slow down a bit) so be sure to swing by and check out the cold room often.
For shares we are channeling our inner Christmas spirit (like the big box stores do about this time of year hahaha. ) and going with a a color theme of red green and yellow. Really….that wasn’t planned. it’s just was a happy accident.
Yukon gold or red potatoes
Cantaloupe – let it sit on the counter for a few days to finish ripening. They got picked to early because of the frost)
Kombucha squash -you can pick either sunrise red or green.
And as always PLEASE PLEASE take a big bag of peppers. we are drowning in them!
Thank you for supporting us and our farm
Lots of love and happy vibes Ali, Kira and Chelsea
Today I am perplexed! The forecast shows a pretty good temperature drop… more than likely it will not freeze, but do I risk it??? Plus the wind that is supposed to come In. It says the low with chill will be 36 degrees. My little farm seems to freeze when that is forecasted. I have three peach tree still full of ripe, almost ripe and green peaches. Cantaloupe that is almost ready, peppers by the bushel, eggplant galore, tomatillos, sweet potatoes to be dug, the last of the kaboocha squash to harvest and so on. The last of the pears were harvested this morning. Oh my, they are so good right now! looks like a good share week to me! I don’t think I will gamble! Looks like a crazy busy day here!
While we say goodbye to the summer bounty, we welcome the crops that only get better with a frost. Broccoli is on this week, carrots and parsnips sweeten with colder temperatures. Lettuce, spinach, cilantro, kale and chard will become a winter staple. And all the winter squash will keep for months. Persimmons and quince are just around the corner. I love fall! So be sure to visit us after shares end.
This week have welcomed 7 new Chocolate Runner ducklings to the farm. Mamma duck, keep those little ones warm!

Well week 6 is here, that means 2 more weeks until shares are over for the year. And last week we had some really good feed back that you liked the you pick baskets. So this week we are stepping up our game.
There is still the basket with the same amount of produce everyone gets and this week that is…..
Then for our “you pick selection” we have…..
Mash potato squash
Lots of options to choose from we hope you enjoy this weeks options and we will se you all when you get here. Happy fall!
The best part of fall is pumpkins!!! They come in so many shapes, sizes, and colors!!! I love to fill my porch up with pumpkins in the fall. I also like to add mums with them so it brings in more of the fall colors I love!
What you will find in your basket this week…
Arugula & mixed greens bag
And guess what we did again this week?! We have two you pick boxes.
First box is a pick 2. It has summer squash & cucumbers.
The second box is a pick 3. It has sweet peppers, hot peppers, okra, & tomatillos.
Fall is almost upon us. That rain storm we had on Tuesday night just put that chill and feel in the air of pumpkins, fall gardens and sweater weathers….. then we have today, where it’s shorts, tees and sandals again.😐 ah well summer can last a few more days I guess.
On to the real reason for today’s blog. BASKETS!!! Oh my lanta! is it a full Basket this week and I really hope you you love a variety of peppers because there is ton today!
A large variety of peppers both warm and sweet. like jalapeño, wax peppers, Anaheim’s, green bells, and I’m sure so others (but since I already put them in the basket I can’t for the life of me remember what they are with out unloading one or two baskets) it will just have to be a surprise. All of them will be wonderful for roasting though.
