Harvest Newsletter

Greetings from the Garden!  This week's CSA box has potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter tomatoes, celery root, daikon radish, onions, and garlic, greens, sage and a pie pumpkin.

Field Notes.  Ken has gotten his compost done before it became too wet.  He has a new to him manure spreader that mixes all his components together.  He will need potting soil to start winter micro greens.  Once the weather is too cold for the full size greens under layers of plastic and fiber, we move on to what we can do with limited space and heat and light - micro greens.

Ken has also been cleaning up old plastic and fiber and sheds - organizing.  There is little time for this during the growing season.  And I move on to paper work that has piled up.  Now is when we are planning for next season.  We welcome your input!

From the Kitchen.  Thanksgiving!  Everyone has different traditions.  We include a pie pumpkin and some sage for the traditionalists, and some daikon radish for the less traditional.  

My suggestion is mix it up.  If everyone wants potatoes, do that, but consider adding a rutabaga dish for the type two diabetics or sweet potatoes. Add some extra vegetable hors d'oeuvres like grated daikon with tamari or soy sauce. 

In any event we are deeply grateful for all we have and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.  'Tl December 2nd. Judith and Ken
