Posted on December 7th, 2021
Happy December!

We've been having wonderful harvest days during this mild December weather. With just a few nights below freezing, the tatsoi, arugula, baby kale, lettuce and red mustard have been going strong.

We focused on getting as many beds of potatoes dug and picked as we could this week. Overall, the weather has been very wet this fall, and we took advantage of the dry week.

Above is a pic of Sam enjoying beet beauty. One of the farm-workers, Sophie, happens to take great photos. We are reveling in the fall abundance, though certainly wishing for a dry-out.
