What’s been going on!
The first day of winter, woohoo! Yet again a gray and wet day as we are on our way to or have eclipsed already the wettest year ever recorded depending on the weather station you look at. We are well ready for this season to be finished. When I left two weeks ago I had no idea that we would get 11 inches of snow plus rain and ice. I felt guilty as Betsy was home doing a great job of keeping the little tunnels cleaned off and the power went out for a day and a half. Just to cap off the year.
A good walk in the desert and time to reflect on where we have been and where Peregrine Farm is going. Despite the crazy weather season it has been a pretty good year thanks to the dedicated folks we work with and to all of you who support us no matter how bad the conditions at market might be or sometimes how irregular the harvest might seem. We are grateful for such a brilliant community.
We are appreciative of the time we have spent with Jennie and honored to be able to continue to work this beautiful and productive piece of the earth. We really hope to see you tomorrow at market to wish you a warm and enjoyable Holiday season. If not we will see you sooner than it seems in February!

The bones of the farm, ready for winter
What’s going to be at the market?
In Lettuce this week we have plenty of Red Little Gem and Salad Mix. A few bunches of Collards, Lacinato Kale and Spigariello.
Japanese Salad Turnips. Lots of Red Radishes. A small amount of Leeks. Wonderful fresh Baby Ginger and Turmeric!
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
