What’s been going on!
A bit hungover from last night’s election results which is all I will say about that. We have been back for a day and a half so are still re-ordering out lives, catching up and planning the next week or so. Great trip to Sicily and Rome for which a full trip report will be forth coming. We did get to many markets and we did manage to get seeds for one of the tomatoes we were looking for.
Incredibly balmy weather while we were gone and of course Jennie did a great job of both managing the farm and markets. Too warm, in many ways, for this late in the season which is pushing some crops meant for Thanksgiving up into this week and the late season peppers are off the hook. In anticipation of the near freeze on Monday night Jennie picked 18 cases of green bells plus 7 or 8 of red bells and corno di toros!
With so many peppers left we will bring out the roaster again this Saturday! Get them while you still can.

What’s going to be at the market?

In roots we have tender and sweet Japanese Salad Turnips. Red and Watermelon Radishes. Carrots and Red Beets. The last of the Baby Ginger. Plenty of fresh Turmeric! Maybe some Lemon Grass too.
As a reminder if there is anything that you would like for us to hold for you at market just let us know by e-mail, by the evening before, and we will be glad to put it aside for you. Just so you know, sometimes not everything listed will be at the Wednesday market.
Hope to see you all at the market!
Alex, Betsy and Jennie
