We’re definitely feeling the seasons change with these cooler mornings. We’re in peak harvest season so we’re spending most of our time collecting all our produce treasures from the fields. We’re also still finding time to direct seed and transplant fall crops, but our window of opportunity is winding down. We’ll still be transplanting fall alliums, mostly garlic and onions, right up to Thanksgiving, which will then be harvested next May/June/July. We hope you enjoy the delicata squash included this week. Many customers tell us that it is their favorite winter squash. Thank you for supporting our farm, and have a wonderful week!
