Hello from the farm!

Self-Harvest Update
If you are wondering about coming out to glean the fields, there are still some great vegetables out there despite the many hard freezes that came early this year.
  • collards and kale are in great shape and tasty
  • beets are small but in good condition
  • the purple top turnips are good
  • the red and white turnips are not as fine-textured as before
  • there are still some scallions that I think should be nice
  • chard took a beating from the cold, but worth trying perhaps
Hope you are well and keeping warm,
