Well folks, it's hard to believe that after today we've only got one more week until the 2017 farm season is a wrap. Thank you everyone for being a part of our extended family this season and for putting your trust in us to grow you and your families the best damn food we know how to grow. There were plenty of ups and downs this season but for the most part, Taylor and I can hold our heads high and feel proud of what we were able to produce. Thousands beyond thousands of pounds of food have been hand picked from our farm, washed, and packed for CSA, markets and restaurants. It's hard to believe that it's just been the two of us for the past 5 years but we're happy to announce that next season we'll be adding some extra hands to the field crew!
This week we were blessed with plenty of rain followed by a few days of warm sunny weather. It's the perfect temperature outside to prep the fields for our big garlic planting (happening next weekend). We sow garlic in the fall and it chills out in the field all winter and wont be harvested until next July. This season's garlic was awesome so we're saving the biggest, healthiest looking cloves to plant as our seed garlic. Fingers crossed for another great harvest in 2018.
We hope you all got the invite to the Migration Harvest Dinner on Friday November, 10. The food will all be farm to table and paired with delicious beer from the always amazing Migration team. Check out ticket info here. The tickets may go fast as we're opening it to the public but want to give CSA members priority (and a discount) so if you're thinking about attending I'd recommend getting tickets ASAP!
Alright folks, we hope you enjoy your veggies this week. As always, there are recipes below to help inspire you to cook through the week.
Cheers to the harvest!
