Panorama view from the greenhouse, which is now occupied by heaps of winter squash.
This isn’t an up-to-date photo… It’s from last week before I cleaned & sorted onions. Now the wire racks are covered in Butternut & Acorn squash, while the floor has twice as many crates of Delicata, Buttercup, Honeynut and Kabocha varieties.
Greens are dunked, or properly termed “hydro-cooled” in the greenhouse.
Here’s John, one of the on-farm interns washing endive for this past week’s CSA share pickup.
Head lettuce in a wheelbarrow awaits it’s turn at the sink.
Jared, another on-farm intern, bags mesclun for the shares, which are given out in re-purposed banana boxes.
“Captain” Bob talking with the interns about what will be going to market this coming week near the list of vegetables in Week 17.
These are some of the most dedicated & hardest working people I know.
Yellow tray full of Basil and boxes of Hot peppers for the heat-lovers.
Equinox brings changing. This is from just this past Sunday.
And the previous Sunday.
Sebastian (the Elder) cozy in the “cold frame” where tender seedlings are a step closer to being set outside in order to “harden off” and adjust to being out in the swing of temperature & elements.
These are all from the last seeding of the season in early September. They’ll be heading to the high tunnels for the Winter CSA share.
Tio. The neurotic farm dog.
In a recent/former life, he was used as a “bait-dog” and consequently has some unresolved issues. He loves laying in the sunshine and being the center of attention.
Dandelion greens (photo from last week’s share) at the greenhouse.
Also from last week, I got to housesit with a sweet pup & kitty:
Who loves a good sock.
A polydactyl kitty. 26 claws and toes in all.
At night, T slept on my legs and Genuine slept on my chest.
Best. Thing. Ever.
Wishing you all a happy Autumn.
