Hard to believe September is tomorrow. We’ve been so busy this summer trying to get ahead. We have had our best garden ever as far as vegetables coming out of it. So what we are doing is working. Customers are coming back because they like the taste of our vegetables. So far this season, I’ve put up 30 quarts of spaghetti sauce, lots of bread and pickles and pickled beets – more to come each weekend. Nothing like our own homemade spaghetti sauce in the dead of the winter with our own tomatoes, garlic, green peppers, onion, parsley and basil. Yum!
We have been busy planting for fall. We will have beets, carrots, turnips, radishes, kale, lettuce (cut and head) and spinach. We will also try our hand in winter growing and early spring growing. We will be attending the Thursday winter farmer’s market in Laconia this year. This will be a weekly event this season. And, we are excited about our own market share CSA which we will be offering next year.
Finally, it appears we may actually be building our post and beam barn this spring. We’ve been wanting to build this since we moved here. We will be milling the wood from our own pine trees on our property. Exciting times ahead for us and our farm. Hoping you will come along for the ride.
