Merry Christmas to All,

I can’t believe that Christmas is just a little more than a week away. The Fall of the year has gone very quick with the solstice (winter) just a few days away. I must say that this has been one of the more gloomy Fall seasons I have ever seen. As of this writing we are at 18 days of overcast with only 4 hours of sun. This has not been good for our spinach, lettuce, and greens growing. We have even seen the affects with some of our micro greens, only harvesting one third of what we should have off last week’s harvest. Hopefully with the passing of solstice will bring more sunlight as the daylight time’s increase each day.

On the farm there is not much new to report. The fields are too wet to work. We continue to weed the greens beds and gather firewood. We are seeing some of the fall planted garlic starting to emerge through the soggy soil. This is somewhat encouraging as we know the garlic is rooted and sprouted ready to take off come spring.

This is the week we send a little larger share for the Holiday week. We certainly thought we would have a few more greens to send. In your shares you will receive potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, acorn squash, carrots, radishes, lettuce mix, and garlic. Make sure to check out this week’s recipe for sweet potato pie a great southern treat for a Christmas dinner dessert.

Reminder: There will not be a share delivery Christmas week.

Have a Merry Christmas, Jim
