The final share of a wonderful summer. We are so happy with the season. Thank you to all members for sharing our gardens with us. We are very grateful for the life we are able to live…..
A light frost visited and settled in a few areas around the garden. It’s time for clean-up and garlic planting. The bulk of our harvests are complete. Most root crops are out of the ground. A few more sweet potatoes to dig, a few rotations of radishes, leeks for a late season harvest and experiments with late autumn Broccoli and cauliflower remain outside. The hoop house is full of delicious cold loving produce for Winter Share. Still a bit of gardening to do but our life changes with this final pick up of Summer Share.
Thanks to all members that returned the end of season surveys. We appreciate the feedback and thoughtful ideas for our CSA.
Wreath workshop dates this year are Friday November 25th, Saturday November 26th, Sunday November 27th and Saturday December 3rd. I can’t wait!
Custom evergreen wreaths available again this year and I am looking forward to making fresh floral thanksgiving bouquets again too. My favorite bouquets to make all year. Place your orders early.
