Summer Share #18 of 22: 10/1 + 10/3 In Stride

by Erin and Steve on 09/29/19

**FYI We're starting share renewals for the 2020 season for current members next week!**
Sometimes in the dead of Winter, when it has been white and even drab outside for a while it's hard to imagine that things will ever be green again. And then Spring turns to Summer and things start greening. In that same vein, sometimes when the summer is super hot and dry and the bugs are annoying it's difficult to imagine all the green ever changing. Well here we are. The leaves are starting to change and the nights are getting chilly. And the rains have started (grrrr).
So the farm is in full harvest mode. We have 2 more weeks of putting plants in the ground in the tunnels and then it's all harvest. This is why I growl at the rain. It makes it difficult to harvest things, as you can imagine. A lot of our big harvests require the use of a tractor and an implement to lift or pull things from the ground. If the ground is too wet, then the tractors can't get in the fields. So here's hoping for a beautiful Fall. Don't worry, I won't remind you that there was no Fall last year (remember it just rained, and rained, and rained, and the leaves on the trees weren't even a thing, and it was wet, and miserable, and cold, and gross). 
So here's to a great Fall ahead of us, right?! This week's share will include: potatoes, fall and winter squash choice, kohlrabi, carrots, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, eggplant, hot peppers, salad radishes and turnips, flowering broccoli, tomatoes, spinach, celery, bok choy, and kale.
The Fruit Share will include peaches, plums, pears and apples.
