The leaves in our field turned color over night. The winter squash and pumpkins are all harvested and curing. Frost has bit the field basil and tomato plants. The hoop house is empty of tomatoes and is awaiting spinach seeds. Can’t believe it is time for another change of the seasons, but here we are.
Fall brings so much bounty. So much I am thankful for and try to not be anxious thinking about where we will find the time to harvest it all and then were will we find the space to store it all. I take the the 2nds and process them for freezing and canning….my freezer is already full!
With the change of season we have a change in crops. Moving back to the cooler weather crops like radish and arugula and onto new crops likes leeks and winter squash. Lucky for me my seasonal palette changes too and I no longer crave a cucumber but am relishing in the peppers and the last of the melons.
Hope this seasonal transition finds you thankful for so many things.
This Week’s Bounty: lettuce, arugula, leeks, onions, tomatoes, sweet peppers, poblano peppers, eggplant, fennel bulb, celery, corn, beans, dill, cilantro
