There has been a lot of thick, heavy fog at the farm lately. I don't mind the grayness in the wintertime, especially when it is not raining. It feels as if the moisture is staying in place and protected. It also helps me stay focused in the office on the records and paperwork, rather than itching to be outside.
We took the pigs to the slaughterhouse last week. We were sad to lose their presence on the farm but we do hope to have more pigs in the future. We are grateful for the tillage work they did, for the manure that they left us, and for meat they will provide.
For this week, here is the list for sale:
- Purple Top Turnips
- Winter Squash
- Watermelon Radish
The fennel, broccoli, and chard will be freshly harvested. The rest has been previously harvested and stored. We will also have potatoes and hakueri turnips available for free. When we are growing year round next year, we hope and will plan to be able to offer even more diversity.
For the activity, we will be doing a scavenger hunt. If anyone has craft and activity ideas, please let me know. I would be happy to hear your suggestions!
