Believe it or not, there is only one more week of veggies after this week. We will have another survey for you after the last box and we hope you take the minute or two it takes to fill it out. We read the survey and have changed our plantings and box contents to suit our members.

Potatoes are here! You will get them this week and next. The sweet potatoes are all dug and you will get a big bag next week. The sweet potatoes were dug late and not cured well enough to last too far into the winter so they should all be enjoyed in the next couple weeks. The beans this week are from Tim Zander, who also supplied us the corn and leeks. The beans are deep green and keep their color when cooked. They are delicious. Our yellow wax beans have flowers but the cold snap we had stunted them too far to produce any beans. The radishes this week are a few different varieties. Some of you have an Easter egg colored mix, some have a yellow variety.

            The farm is really beautiful this time of the year and it looks totally different than it did just a month ago. There is grass growing where the barn foundation resided, the silo is gone for good, the trees are absolutely gorgeous right now, the autumn rains have arrived, and we are winding down. If you didn’t know, the Tuesday Eastside Market will continue indoors starting next Tuesday. It will be inside the Wil-Mar Center on Jenifer St. in Madison from 4-7. We will have similar things that you will see the last two weeks of the season. We try to sell everything that we have left over and then we move on to our winter farming. We raise cold hardy salad greens for restaurants in Madison and surrounding area. You may see some of our stuff at the Yahara River Grocery Co-op in Stoughton as well.

            We hope you enjoy the box this week!

If anyone is looking for a good way to spend Saturday afternoon, come on out to the farm and help us erect our new hoophouse. There will be plenty of jobs for everyone. Drilling, holding boards, connecting pipes, enjoying the nice weather, and then enjoying a home made meal by Andy, drinks included.  We hope some of you can make it. We will start around two and we stop at five, then eat. Let us know if you are coming so we can plan accordingly. Also, dress in layers, it’s supposed to be on the cooler side, which is perfect outdoor working weather. If you can only stay for a little while or have to show up late, we would still love to see you .
