From the Fields of Freedom Valley Farm 10.12.16

Posted 10/12/2016 7:43pm by Jim Baughman.

Greetings,

The transition into fall and winter continues on the farm. The green leaves on the trees are gradually turning colors. The farmers in nearby fields are beginning their harvest of soy beans and corn. On the farm we continue to harvest sweet potatoes, potatoes, and plant winter greens. We have many preparations to do before cold weather hits. We have not yet replaced the plastic that was torn off one of the greenhouses what seems to be way back in July. Also the hoop house that was damaged in an April storm has yet to be put back together. Both will need to be done in the next couple of weeks in order for us to grow in them this winter. And let’s not forget about planting garlic, a fairly large undertaking. All in all, I think the transition is going well and we have a few weeks of good weather yet to get it done.

In this week’s shares: Arugula - a great fall and spring salad green (see this week’s recipe for arugula /kale salad). Fall  Kale (see this week’s recipe for Kale/Arugula pesto). Green Bell Peppers great for a stuffed bell pepper recipe. Butternut Squash. Some shares will receive Carrots while others will receive Beets. A great fall bounty that can be used in so many fall recipes. Enjoy, Jim
