Farm Happenings for October 14, 2020

Posted on October 12th, 2020 by Mike Milsom

Here is hoping you each had a meaningful Thanksgiving weekend. Couldn't really have asked for better weather on Sunday.  Just beautiful.  

A bit of a hilarious story... on Sunday I went to visit my friends who were at the TD centre Farmer's Market. Parking is always a hassle down there..especially in my big van.  Anways, I knew that with all things it might be a light crowd so I went down to connect and be supportive.  I rolled up to the gate looking for a place to park just outside when the security guard jumped up and opened it up and confidently waved me in.  I tried waving him off but he was persistent and I thought, "oh"   So I drove in giving him a nod of approval and slowly coasted around to where the stalls where located.  Casually parked in an unloading zone and then went to visiting. Picked up a few nice items to enjoy, shared a story or two then walked back to my van and hopped in. No ticket..nothing. With confidence I drove out to the other side only to have the security person there, just as quickly as the first roll back the gate for me. I was sure to give him a nod of approval as I passed by and then with a chuckle pulled out onto Bank and headed home.  Sometimes things just work out :-)

It really has been a season of blessings.  Remarkably so. Intense, full of growing pains but truly what a year!  I could not have asked for a better group of people to share it with as well.  You have been so fun. Showing off recipies and sending encouraging and also funny messages.  We have already started to build a team of core people for next year and the winter will be set aside to plan, educate and prepare for 2021. I really hope you will be a part of it!  

This week there is our famous yellow and red onions, some great field tomatoes that have just ripened in time, a mix bag of freshly dug potatoes, carrots, beets, kohlrabi and ofcourse all our squashes. I should have eaten supper before I wrote all of that because now I'm starving. 

As always, enjoy. It is a priviledge to have the opportunity to put food on your family's table. Thank for making this season possible.
