We had a touch of frost a few nights ago.  Just enough to kill a few pumpkin leaves, but that’s enough to bring fear into the hearts of most farmers.  We know that it’s just a matter of time until the frost turns everything in the field to mush.  Until that time, we’ll enjoy the bounty!

It’s such a shame, we’ve had to disallow comments on the blog due to too much spam.  I love getting comments and questions from customers but the spam management was just becoming too time consuming.  Boo Hiss. On a lighter note, this week’s csa will be a hit.  This hot weather has pushed forward some beautiful crops (as I ‘m…

The weather was cool, cold even.  I was making soup!  So we decided to put a beautiful roasting chicken in the CSA.  Then the weather went up to 35 degrees!  Who the heck is going to turn the oven on for the next little while?  Not me!  So you now probably all have a chicken in your freezer for use…
