Farm Happenings for September 3, 2019

Posted on September 1st, 2019 by Sarah Brown

Hi Farm Friends,

I'm canning away! Are you? Nows the time to make tomato sauce and freeze or preserve it for the winter. My preferred way, after many variations and experiments, is to roast halved tomatoes in the oven and then take them out, peel the skins off, put in a pot to boil, and water bath can. You can just roast them and freeze them in bags too. Check out the extras and add a box onto your share.

Remember to mark your calendars for the farm harvest part on Sunday, Sept. 29th. We'll have food and music and friends and fun. We hope you can make it.

On the farm this week the corn came to an end : ( but the melons are on! We're starting to see and feel the rewards of all the season's work as the big harvest rolls in. Soon potatoes and winter squash and onions will all make their way out of the ground and into boxes and bags for winter meals. It's weighty work but the ultimate satisfaction from so many hours of weeding, and watering, and tending.

We feel an immense responsibility to this land and it's creatures. It's not one that we take lightly and we pursue it with great joy and gratitude. While we may resent the deer this time of year the sweet little frogs that wriggle out of our celery and broccoli remind us of our connection and potential to lie in harmony. Thank you for pursuing harmony with us.

Enjoy this week's goodies.
