Fall

Fall is undoubtedly here. We got our first frost Saturday night. We harvested all the rest of our winter squash on Sunday morning - we think about 4,000 lbs! - with the help of two pickup trucks and a bunch of friends. Many great thanks to those who showed up Sunday morning and pitched in, even for a little while! Below you can see a Ben-cam view of the process (okay, I didn't stick a camera on Ben, I just held my camera above his shoulder).

'Tis indeed the season of abundance: not only are the vegetables pretty much pouring out of the fields, but the new flock of laying ducks has started to come into lay, and the eggs are pouring in as well. 

Chef Ali has a couple new recipes for us this week, featuring the delicious Chinese (or Napa) Cabbage: Cellophane Noodle Soup with Beef and Chinese Cabbage  and Peanut Noodles with Asian Slaw.

See you at market!
