News from the farm

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our annual CSA Harvest Festival on Sunday.  It was a beautiful day and we hope everyone enjoyed seeing the farm!  A very special thank you to Barbara Garriel, Alexa Weitzman, Stacey Ornstein and our lovely volunteer, Nancy Glover, for making the day such a success! 

I think we're finally turning a corner towards some real autumn weather this week.  The farm is still bustling, but things do start to slow down just a bit by the end of this month.  The tomatoes in this week's share will be the last of the season.  I'm still amazed that we're harvesting so many tomatoes this late in the season.  If you want to save them to use in soups this winter, just chop them up (with skins on!) and pop in a ziplock bag in the freezer.  - Maggie
