Things are winding down a little at the farm, but we still have a few projects to tackle before we are done in the fields for the season. At the end of last week we finished planting next year's garlic. Today we weeded next year's strawberries and laid mulch down on the strawberry and garlic beds for the winter. Soon we will divide our rhubarb, remove invasive plants from our blueberry patch, and get serious about field clean up! Over the next couple of weeks we will pick up our remaining irrigation lines, take down deer fencing, and mow and disk wherever needed.
We also still have some vegetables to harvest before it gets really cold! The store will be open for one more week during our regular hours on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. You can also still order bulk quantities of fall veggies for pick-up this coming Saturday or on Thursday, November 5th. If you'd like to place an order, please do so at least 24 hours before your intended pick-up. You can get an order form in the farm stand, or you can download one by clicking here.
