Our rented cooler is filling up with our ongoing fall harvest. So far, celeriac (being harvested in the photo), kohlrabi, and about half of our cabbage and beets are out of the field.

Our big fall harvest continues this week.  We decided to rent a cooler to help us get the crops in and at the right temperature for October.  This time of year is always challenging with our storage crops fighting with our weekly harvest for space in our barn!  But the weather looks amazing... read more »
