New From the Farm – August 24

Good morning from the farm!
We are entering a high point in the growing season, as far as eating goes. There is a very short period of time where one can enjoy the end of the summer crops and the beginning of fall ones. What this means on the farm is that harvesting is very intense. Right now every few days I pick cucumbers, zucchini, beans, tomatoes and summer squash. But other fall crops are patiently waiting for their turn to be harvested such as spinach, lettuce, radishes, turnips, peas, carrots, beets, winter squash, pumpkins, popcorn, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, and brussels sprouts.
Still there are a select few items that technically should be considered warm weather crops, but seem like they want to wait till fall to ripen, notably peppers and melons.
At any rate, we keep busy and keep working to make available as much of this bounty as possible.
