This week at the Farmers’ Market Eric will have chicken, chicken feet, eggs (all sizes), tomatoes, green beans, scallions, peppers, eggplant, okra, cucumbers, summer squash, fennel, basil, potatoes, garlic, broccoli, chard, collards, kale, beets, pumpkins, and sunflowers.
Also, for those of you interested in a pasture raised turkey for Thanksgiving, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org, we have just a few turkeys left to reserve.
Well, we haven’t mowed the lawn and the back field since May. I really can’t say that we missed it. At all. But watching the grass turn brown and the few bushes we had left die off, it was actually nice to say, “well, I guess I’ll get the push mover out tomorrow night.”
It’s so nice to see some green again. We have had 5 plentiful rains and the plants are really starting to show their appreciation. The okra is blooming, the edible pumpkins are almost ready to come off the vine. I am thankful for the recent rains.
Eric has diligently worked on our pickling and canning list for the winter. He put 6 five-gallon buckets of pickles in the walk-in cooler last week. In the next couple of weeks, he will work on sauerkraut and canning tomatoes. If I haven’t mentioned it lately, I am also thankful for my farmer.
Enjoy the cooler weather this weekend.
