Harvest Newsletter

Greetings from the Garden!  This week's CSA box has lettuce and greens, potatoes, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, onions and garlic, peppers, and cabbage or Brussels sprouts

Field Notes.  Rain - lots of rain.  Ken found a window of opportunity and got the garlic planted.  He has been harvesting roots and I am burying them in sand in the root cellar for winter boxes.

This week the pigs go to the locker.  We always feel sadness and relief - Ken has an extra hour or more each day now.  

From the Kitchen.  Greens!  We have greens each day - some times raw for salad and sometimes wilted with cream or vinegar or a dressing.  Ken has been making soup - a potato cabbage soup and a creamed carrot and other vegetable soup.  We often have soup in the morning as it is warming and the egg production drops sharply when the days get short.

I have been making jam now that we could get some organic lemons.  In side by side comparisons we can taste the difference in sugar and lemons - mainstream conventional vs. organic.

'Til Next Week, Judith
