I love watching the colors change across the mountain-side behind our farm, from shades of green to red, orange, and yellow. It is a beautiful time of the year. Closer to home, there aren't many colors left to enjoy through the rows of crops, from greens and reds to shades of brown. I'm hoping that touch of WHITE I saw on the mountains Monday won't come back again for a few more weeks.

Found another interesting veggie shape on the farm this week that I couldn't resist taking a picture of. This photo is dedicated to the romantics out there. You know who you are.
Last Friday, Mr. Hathaway's class from Afton Elementary School came to visit the farm. (That's my son Eli on the right in the green striped T-shirt.) They had a good time learning about things like making compost, why we use row covers and greenhouses, feeding pigs, and milking goats. We also dug up a short row of potatoes, picked tomatoes and washed up as many carrots as they wanted to eat. FYI: (In the photo above) No, the kids are not giving you the "thumbs-up" sign, they are showing you their yummy carrots.
This week your share will include:
French Fillet Beans - last of the season
Sweet Yellow Onions
Bulgarian Chile Peppers
Red Norland Potatoes
Assortment of Tomatoes
Have a good week. Enjoy! :) Tara
