I keep getting the question of how much longer we’ll continue with the pickups. Short answer – until we run out of sweet delicious carrots and the rest of the stock of veggies we have stored in April’s basement! My gut tells me it will just be one more week after this one. But then again, the spinach is looking fantastic and we’re actually just about to start harvesting from the next planting (a very late, optimistic “why not” planting). So who knows….does that clear things up? Either way, time to start stocking up!
It’s always hard to pull the plug on a season, but sometimes you get subtle reminders that maybe, just maybe, it’s time. Like Monday, after our big Thanksgiving pickup, I found this in our mailbox – the first seed catalog for 2018! While attempting to keep my mind on the task at hand, I find myself daydreaming about big plans for the future. And what a great question on the front – certainly an off-season newsletter subject! Short answer…I grow for the cutie pictured above with the huge grin on her face while eating a carrot almost as big as she is that I pulled from the clean organic dirt a few minutes prior which wasn’t sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or any other type of ‘cides. Why do you grow?
Put your orders in online before 8am Monday. We’ll pick it fresh Monday morning and have your order available for you to pick-up from 4-7pm Monday on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the big red barn at the crest of the hill.
