It's the second last CSA pick-up for the 2013 season. It seems crazy that its coming to a close already as the weather has been amazing and feels more early September than mid October. I'm very thankful its been so nice as its made it much easier on the fingers harvesting. I still have some pretty crazy cracked fingers and knuckles but it could always be worse.
This weeks large share has lettuce mix, spinach, tatsoi, carrots, parsley root, onions, shallots, bok choy, winter squash, lots of sweet peppers, tomatoes, broccoli and white salad turnips. The grab boxes had leeks, parsnips, cauliflower, beets, kale, collards, hot peppers, dill, cilantro, purple and green cabbage. The herbs are pretty well toast so I wouldn't expect any in next weeks bins except good old parsley.
|Beautiful direct seeded bok choy|
|Everything looked great when I started into the celeriac patch.|
|Yikes!!! This is what I found when I started cutting into a few of them|
|The worst were completely hollow and mush|
We had a great Thanksgiving at my brothers and ate our faces off!!! Wonderful.
|9:30am and the broccoli was still frosted|
|Basil the day before the frost. Not looking its best but still growing and green|
|After frost. Basil is always my tell tale plant on the degree of frost we had.|
|The eggplant were still flowering outside the day before the frost.|
|Tomatoes were still thriving outside. Frost took care of them|
|I harvested all of my sweet peppers from outside before the frost. I got so many!!!|
|Fall clean up|
|Still lots of broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage in the field|
