Greens and Other Goodies

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I was so tired and out of my normal routine last Thursday I completely forgot to write a blog post. I wanted to write about our Thanksgiving feasting. Of course, many of our vegetables were featured, but we also gobbled up some delicious turkey from Apple Creek Farm in Bowdoinham. You can find them at the Brunswick Winter Market at Fort Andross as well. 

Greens, greens, greens! We hope to have a fair amount of greens up until the new year. We are limited by the cold somewhat, as well as the daylength (which means that most plants do not put on any growth between mid-November and mid-February, even if they remain alive). This week we will have sweet and tender kale, chard, spinach, and lettuce mix. 

We are experimenting this year with some fun and funky non-traditional wreaths for all your festive occasions. We will most likely have them only at the Brunswick Winter Market on Saturdays, but you can also find some at Cully's Gullies Christmas Trees just down the road from us if you miss them at the market. Ben will be down with John Cullen at Cully's Gullies selling Christmas trees every weekend in December until Christmas. 

We have made a lot of progress on the new greenhouse this - this is the one that will be heated. The kit got delivered on Monday and it's coming together really well. I'll post some pictures in next week's blog. 

I'll end with a photo from harvest this morning (below). This was after a couple hours of harvesting in the rain, and it felt like a really good sign.

See you at market!
