Week 19 – Summer 2010

Oct 21, 2010 | Box Contents, Recipes, Week 19

Hello everyone,

So, as the barometre drops, things are beginning to slow down on the farm. There are fewer and fewer late nights and many of our migrant workers are going home this week. It is a little saddening but at the same time the change in seasons is a truly wonderful thing about our great nation.

The farm does not shut down entirely in the winter. Those later months are spent preparing countless bags of beets and carrots and finding a home for the remaining cabbage and squash (they are stored in giant bins stacked up in our building).

But, there are still things being harvested out in the fields. I know a lot of you mentioned our broccoli was sometimes affected by worms (and that was after painstakingly picking through to find the best ones) but I think you will find the broccoli this week to be the best yet. Prehaps the frost is doing us a little favour in killing off the pests, because the broccoli really does look lovely this week.

Thanks to those who have already returned your survey – I really appreciate it. Remember, you can also return it on the last week after which I will be announcing the winner of the draw.  Only one week left – enjoy!
