Well the leaves are starting to change around here and things are starting to really turn in the garden. We don't have too many more weeks of peppers, tomatoes, eggplants and other heat-loving crops!
Pat was working all weekend getting our spring beds raised and cover cropped. Raising the beds like this will enable better drainage which is critical for our early season crops. We never know how much moisture will come over the winter, or how early things will warm up in the spring, so doing this gives us a better chance at getting into the beds early since the tops will warm up and dry out more quickly than if they were flat.
We will have leeks, turnips and some of our own winter squashes this week but we are going to leave the rest of the carrots in the ground for a bit longer.
We have started harvesting some red potatoes too and they look great!
We will also have winter squashes from Forman Farms, apples from Hall's Apple Market and beets and roma tomatoes from Harmony Farm!
This is our first time teaming up with Greg and his family at Harmony Farm! They are located just outside of Brockville and this is their first season in production. They grow their veggies following the organic standard but are not certified.
Enjoy your veggies this week!
