The final share of the 2017 season.  A dusting of snow on the ground this morning after the balmy temperatures of late Fall. It seems an almost a symbolic end to the season today as the ground is freezing and we can do no more in the gardens.  Our clean up is complete, and the gardens are put to bed.  A first around here-ever!

We hosted our 5th year of wreath workshops the last 2 weekends and  it was tons of fun.  I am always amazed at the creative and beautiful wreaths that are constructed.  It is 1 of my favorite activities and something I look forward to every season.

A busy day in the wreath workshop.

Maeve made a wreath too for her bedroom.

Our days will change again with the seasons, the walk in cooler will go off for a few months, seed orders will be placed, machinery mantenance and repair, reorganizing, and a bit of family fun….

Our best ever season!  Thanks to all who shared this amazing year with us.  We are grateful and look forward to 2018 season.

2018 CSA enrollment open January 2018 to existing members-February 1st 2018 to waiting list and general public.

And garlic’s up!

Sure signs that Spring is on it’s way.  We are enjoying our days outside with the sunshine and warmer temperatures.  An exciting time of planning and seed starting and organizing the rotation and planting schedule in the garden.

The hoop house packed with Spring Share goodies!

We have to keep an eye on things in the hoop house as the temperature can rise quickly.

We are so pleased with the how well the hoop house is growing.  Scott had to double row cover the crops last week with the overnight cold but when he peeked under the cloth it was a comfortable 40 degrees with outside air temperature in the low teens.  Relief!  All of the leafy greens have doubled in size and I planted a long LONG! section of Swiss chard and fennel this week.  We had to squeeze these crops  in and harvesting will be tight but we will dance around and not wear our big garden boots and it should all work out and it is so worth it!  Nothing better then Spring Greens.  We’ve started to  harvest Spinach and expect a bounty harvest next week…..Spring is rolling in fast around here.

Other big deals around here…our organic seed potatoes arrived.  All 300 pounds of them!  We are hoping for 10-13 pounds of harvested potatoes for every 1 pound planted.  That’s a lot of potatoes….!  We have a pretty good planting routine so it doesn’t take too long to get it all in the ground. Depending on the weather we will start planting mid April.

We are getting the garden ready for a bit of tilling and prepped for planting…  Loose ends getting cleaned up for mulch laying.  It is a dry Spring and we think we will be getting in the garden sooner this year.

The sides are lowered on the hoop and grenhouses to keep out the chill.

The sides are lowered on the hoop and grenhouses to keep out the chill.

Brrr……We hauled up wood to the house for the woodburners, put on our caps and pulled out our long johns.  The sides stay down on the hoop and greenhouses as we work in the gardens in a whole new environment.  A quick transition to Autumn life here.  Sad to see the warm summer days disappear but honestly this is my favorite time of year.  It is energizing for me for some reason.

Scott is so happy the late potato harvest is complete.   A duty that was on our mind daily and now satisfying that it is done.  He quickly pulled up the mulch and drip lines and tilled the soil.  We  will plant a cover crop here this week to replenish the soil.

Winter Squash is all harvested and in the greenhouse to cure.  A bountiful harvest and one of my favorite crops to bring in.

Wondering what we will find.

IMG_4626_2

Just getting started and the crate is full!

The Fall crops loved the weather this past week and we will start harvesting some late cabbage and peek at the brussels sprouts that seem so late this year.  We had a nice harvest of green beans and wonder if this will be the end of this summer staple.  Carrots and beets are bulking up and all that spinach in the hoop house is getting thick, juicy and so delicious.  Our heat loving summer crops hung out and shivered in the garden wondering what was going on…..tomatoes sat at almost a full stop,  zucchini vines shut down and the peppers rested on the plants.  I am sure one warm day yet this Fall we will have a nice bountiful harvest before our good bye to these summer treats.

 

A big week of clean up.  The cucumber area needs to get cleaned out and  the trellises down.  The melon patch vines need to go to the compost pile and a cover crop planted and I am going to seed in a few late crops in the hoop house.  Radishes, turnips, and pac choi for the winter shares.

The hoop house is packed with Autumn crops that thrive at this time of year.

Swiss Chard-We start this second planting late in the season so tender juicy stalks are in the Fall Shares.  2 favorite colors a deep magenta and another called rhubarb.

Spaghetti Squash-Another first for us this season and we are thrilled! We planted 2 varieties.  A mini single serving size for the snack packs and a larger variety for the full shares.  A bountiful harvest.  Enjoy!  This was a suggestion from a CSA member on last year’s end of season survey.  A great suggestion and we plan to plant again next year too.

Radishes-A nice sized snacking bag.  The end of this crop in the hoophouse.

Summer Mini Carrots-A collection of 3 varieties.  Carrots grown in the summer are not as sweet as those grown in Spring and Fall.  A strong carrot flavor. Fun to taste the difference.  These are delicious oven roasted or in soups and stews but can be enjoyed fresh in salads or on their own as a snack.

Autumn.  I like to plant a few sunflowers late in the season around the garden for the birds.

Autumn. We like to plant a few sunflowers late in the season around the garden for the birds.

Dewdrops blanket the garden in the changing morning light.  Warm jackets, and we ponder if we really should put caps on while we work.  The garden is transitioning to Autumn.  Our duties shift to clean up, flipping the growing compost pile, cover crops, and still digging the last of the late potatoes from their beds. We are going to peek at the Sweet Potatoes and see if they are about ready.  This will be our last high volume harvest. Our end of season crops are in and the location for the garlic bed this year planned out.  A few late season “experimental crops” are germinating in the greenhouse for Winter Share hoop house growing and we are going to try some late Late! carrots in crates for a cold Winter sweet treat.

A slower pace and my favorite time of year.  This is the week we will harvest all the winter squash and it looks to be a wonderful harvest!  We will set them out to cure and they will appear in our final shares of the season and in the Winter Share bounties.

One of Scott’s big goals this season was to have thick plump Autumn leeks and I think we finally did it.  Last winter we researched varieties and planting techniques and the results look wonderful in the field.  We trialed 3 varieties and all look seccessful.  We are looking forward to this late season harvest and big pots of potato leek soup.

Autumn Leeks!

We have had a fun project going on here the last few weeks.  Gail, a fellow CSA member gave Maeve a Monarch Butterfly catepillar and book about it’s life cycle.  We put the catepillar in a saved screened box that the bees were shipped in with milkweed and read the book and watched the catepillar transition to chrysalas. 12 days later the butterfly emerged.  On Monday night we set it free in the zinnia patch.  Thank You Gail for this amazing experience.

Fast.  That was the theme of the week for us.  The days zipped by quickly and big harvest jobs completed in a speedy fashion.  We are enjoying work in this season’s cooler temperatures.  The absence of the extreme oppressive heat of years past sure keeps our endurance up to chug along.  Happy days of progress and it feels good.  Late season crops are developing with the aid of constant around the clock irrigation somewhere in the garden.  We hope for rain, daily we hope for rain but the irrigation lines run and we are ok.  The popcorn is tassling!  High hopes we make it in time.   The next round of broccoli looks good and we are still digging late potatoes.  We planted and will continue to plant late season carrots and are going to experiment with some over winter carrot varieties for an early season treat next year.  More spinach went in, beets too and a final planting of Chinese cabbage.  I seeded in some pac choi for end of season harvest and have to admit I am starting to miss eating one of my new favorites this season.

Scott removed the Summer Squash jungle.  I danced among the vines for a final harvest that will appear in the shares this week.  The new patch is starting to produce already.
