Fall colours are close to their peak here at the farm as we slowly progress through fall storage harvest.  We’re still waiting on some things to mature – cabbages that should have been ready weeks ago are hardly heading.  It’s been a strange year and some crops seem delayed.  So we’re hoping we have a longer warm fall for that to mature, but may end up with a much lighter storage crop than we had hoped for.  The storage carrots won’t be enormous, but we’ll at least have something from them.

CSA this week we have Lettuce, Rutabaga, Tomatoes, Carrots, Delicata Squash, Beans, Cabbage, and Cilantro.

This week was the first since July that Nathan had a Saturday off of market and since even longer that we took one mostly off of work.  We were thankful for our team pulling together to make it possible for us to have the day to celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary.  So much has changed over the past six years, and we are thankful to be able to farm together.

Also this week we managed to make some good progress on the greenhouse endwall upgrades.  There are still the sliding doors and top trim on the one end to finish, but most of it is done, and we got rid of most of the holes.  It feels really good to see progress.  We still need to replace the top plastic and the rollup side vents, but that’s a job for another day.

This week we will have fresh lamb.  I forgot last week to say preorder, but if anyone wants a whole lamb cut to your specifications, let me know today (Monday).  $9 per lb hanging weight.

Well that’s the news for this week.  We’re thankful for the rain we have received this past week.

Happy ordering!

Nathan and Aleta Klassen
