We are really enjoying the extra-warm temperatures that came with the latest weather front. And, although it was pretty wet and blustery last night, we didn't get too much rain to get out into the field and harvest this morning. We did, however, get enough rain to make the ducks pretty happy. Above you can see them roving out from their (winter) house.
This week we have wrapped up our fall root harvest. Everything is washed and packed in the cooler (above, in panoramic view), where it will hibernate until we sell it at market. If you were wondering, each shelf section in the cooler holds about 500 pounds of vegetables! We encourage you to try all our different storage vegetables - including red, gold, and white turnips, Black Spanish and Munich beer radishes, and the classic, sweet, storage carrot, variety Bolero.
The Crystal Spring Farmers' Market ends November 7th; the Brunswick Farmers' Market on the Mall continues until the Tuesday before Thanksgiving (November 24th). Winter markets will be starting up soon - Midcoast Winter Farmers' Market starts Friday, November 6th (1-5 pm, Topsham Fairgrounds), and the Brunswick Winter Market starts Saturday, November 14th (9-12:30 pm, Fort Andross Mill).
Enjoy the warm temperatures, and see you at market!
