2016 Harvest 18

Howdy folks and welcome to the last official week of summer! As you'll notice, the boxes are shifting and they are shifting fast. The root veggies are coming in strong, tomatoes are dwindling, cucumbers are on their last legs, and the potatoes and leafy greens are in abundance. We love the shift in seasons and it's always a delight to enjoy a little taste of summer with the first of the autumn bounty.

This week we are happy to report that all of the winter squash and potatoes are out of the ground! It's been one hell of a harvest and our bodies are pretty banged up. But it feels great to have the barn stocked to the brim with a ton of storage crops. It's really starting to feel like fall around here and we're excited to start distributing the first round of winter squash next week. Stay tuned!

Anyhow, we hope this coming week you all enjoy the harvest. It's a great time of the year to sit around the table, clink glasses with your friends and family and enjoy a home cooked meal. 

Cheers from Tumbleweed!

Your farmers,
T & A
