Winter Share Week #5 of 7: 12/13+12/15- Still

We're out here still harvesting leafy green things for all our Winter Share members! It's fun harvesting in December, especially when the crop is looking good! No shock that the insanely warm October and November have led to a warmer December, but it makes growing vegetables with only the aid of the sun easier. If you've been reading very long you might've gathered we are supporters of soil grown produce (as opposed to things grown in water with the aid of chemicals, because water does not contain the proper nutrients for veggies to grow, added heat and other artificial inputs). So we grow throughout the Winter in the ground inside the tunnels ('tunnels' are industry terms for unheated greenhouses that are used as growing space). We have all sorts of stuff in them, but we are also still harvesting some stuff from the fields as well. We usually plan on the holiday season being the end of any field harvests, as actual Winter starts then, and the weather is less reliable.

So, this week's share is usually my favorite of the whole Winter Share. It will include: lettuce, spinach, bunched greens, kale, bok choy, winter squashes, potatoes, carrots, beets, parsnips, radishes, turnips, leeks, cabbage, onions, and celery. The 6th share of the season will be the week of New Years!
