We had a an active end to our season with some extra days of harvest after our official “last day of work”. Rutabaga and Watermelon Radishes needed to be harvested and our newest employee Andrea, who will work with us next season, and our trusted employee Kyle came in and helped finish the tasks. We now have over 4,000# of rutabaga, turnips, kohlrabi, radishes, celery root, and potatoes in our cooler to extend our crop availability for the restaurant. Planning for next year has begun with some exciting ideas. We have talked about building mobile chicken coops, adding goats and pigs, putting up another high tunnel, expanding our orchard, and having our CSA be able to be picked up at the farm. So I spend my days dropping off vegetables to Agricola, taking care of the chickens and washing eggs, crop planning, meeting with chefs, and investigating the many possibilities for next year. Winter will be here tomorrow to help shed the darkness and bring in the light. Happy Solstice everyone!
