Wow. Are we drowning in vegetables! Harvest time is here and it is ON!
We’ve got a whole barn bay full of winter squash (and if you know our barn, you realize that’s a LOT of winter squash), another bay rapidly filling up with potatoes, an entire walkin full of onions, and we’ve rented a barn bay from neighboring farm to fill up with just rockwell bean plants left to cure and dry so we can thresh them. the rest of the bays in our barn we are in the process of filling up with all the other varieties of dry beans we grow. Not to mention a good three acres of ground planted to winter hardy veggies – things like carrots, kale, chard, beets, lettuces, radicchios, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages, turnips, brussell sprouts, parsnips, celeraic, celery, parsley, cilantro, spinach and oh I’m sure a half a dozen things I’m forgetting.
It’s the abundance time. No doubt. But it’s also squirrel “hoard for winter time.” As in, start filling those pantries with the abundance of summer to stretch us through the lean times of winter. And so we’ve sent SO SO SO much food to the Bayview and Coupeville farmer’s markets today. We hope you stop on by and fill up your larders!
