Fall is here and there’s a lot going on.

We have been so grateful for the beautiful weather as fall begins. We’ve had the right amount of rain, sun and wind. This past Saturday was beautiful. Eric, Milo and I were able to take a nice walk through the gardens and look at the fall crops that are coming up.


After walking through the gardens, Milo and I were able to help with the chicken chores.

Milo loves to help feed the chickens.

Totally off topic, Milo will be going as a rooster for Halloween. Here’s the inspiration for his costume, Whitey.

Today we had two round bales of hay delivered. We will use these to cover the strawberry beds and garlic. We will also plant Jerusalem artichokes this fall. This is a new one for us, and we will see how it goes this spring.

We also will be taking the last round of broilers in to be processed on Tuesday, October 4th. Which means we will have birds for sale at the Market on October 8th!

This week at the Market we will have eggs, potatoes, onions, garlic, winter squash, arugula, eggplant, chiles, chard, and kale.
