Thanksgiving was a really great holiday- my family visited for the weekend so we cooked a huge feast that just wouldn’t quit — we had turkey sandwiches and soup for days afterwards… Thanksgiving was also my last weekend attending the farmer’s market. There have been frosts at the farm, so the tender vegetables have stopped producing. Everything that is left (there is quite a lot!) will be stored for our use in the winter – Looks like we’ll be eating a lot of potatoes. I’ve also started to harvest parsnips and brussel sprouts and protecting the lettuce in the field with row cover. Hopefully we can stretch salad season well into november.

Lots of variety this week!
We have red and green cabbage, daikon radish, turnip, beets, carrots, radish, zuchinni, baby patty pan squash, cherry and slicing tomatoes, ground cherries, cucmbers, head lettuce, salad mix, kale and swiss chard!
This past weekend was my first time at the New Glasgow Farmer’s Market. It was a really great market, steadily busy and lots of interesting folks to meet. I had kale, chard, green onions, and a variety of herbs. I’m wishing I had more veggies planted, but tomatoes and peppers are coming along. Maybe some new potatoes too.
