FARM NEWS 9.5.10

This week at the farm: Vacation Time! While Labor Day is not a holiday here on the farm,( we will be laboring away) come Tuesday we'll be on our way to the beach. We can't quite believe it, leaving the farm during the growing season. We can't even remember when the last time this happened. We did go to a wedding a couple of years ago at the end of September, but the fact that we might actually get to the beach while it is warm enough to swim is a little mind blowing. Of course we have a great crew that will hold down the fort. We'll be leaving after Tuesday harvest and apprentices Biz and Renee will be managing the Friday harvest. They'll also be responsible for the animals - piglets, chickens and of course the cows and milking. We're sure we're leaving the farm in capable hands. We make sure that the apprentices get their vacation sometime in August. It can be a long season and we know without a break one can tend to get run down and burned out. So hopefully everyone will head back to work in September refreshed by a break and ready for a wonderful fall.

Here's the harvest:
onions, leeks, lettuce, kale, chard, cukes, zucchini, carrots, potatoes, peppers, hopefully tomatoes...
