There are so many things to be thankful for right now. Most immediately, I am thankful that our two bundles of joy slept all night for the first time in as long as either of us can remember Friday night. Combined with sunshine and warm (relative) weather yesterday, and a return to normal temperatures lately, I feel like I a million bucks. Even better, Monday’s forecast sure looks better than last Monday’s forecast – my hands are still thawing out! The last couple weeks made me rethink the wisdom (craziness?) of trying to grow great food for y’all right up until Thanksgiving. Crazy or not, we accomplished it this year and I am excited to share the wealth to show our appreciation for your season-long dedication to the farm. Some veggies will be straight from the fields, some will be straight from the tunnel, and some will be straight out of storage. All will be delicious and I hope will brighten up your holiday meals. Thank you for your support!
Greens for Thanksgiving? If it’s not already a staple in your Thanksgiving spread, it’s time to make it one! Many items are limited, especially the fresh stuff, so don’t delay if you want to assure yourself of a gorgeous light salad to balance out the heaviness of the rest of the meal. The lettuce heads are not nearly as big as I would have liked – next year! To give you some perspective for ordering, I’d say a head of the baby lettuce properly topped should provide enough salad for 2-3 adults. Fewer if they eat salad like this farmer 🙂
Veggie Ordering and Pickup Procedures: Put your veggie orders in online before 8pm Sunday. The website is a little buggy so if you don’t see a wide variety of items or you see items out of stock, try refreshing your browser. Also confirm on checkout that you have the correct number of each item in your cart. The two pickup windows are working well so far, so we’ll keep it going. Choose your pickup window while checking out online: 1-2pm and 4-6pm Monday on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the beat up tan and red barn at the crest of the hill.
