Well, this is going to be another short update, due to the time and when I have to be up tomorrow morning.
The “big news” is that I have decided to keep the stand fully open until November 18th (the Sunday before Thanksgiving).
AROUND THE FARM
The work continues, though this past week also included work around the property that had to be attended to. Let me tell you, there is nothing quite like having to do roofing work in 35 – 38 temps, with winds gusting up to 25mph. Keeps life interesting, that’s for sure. Anyway, the other work kept me from finishing the small temporary farm stand building, but it is about halfway done. Unfortunately, this means being out in the weather under the tents for this weekend, which should be fun given the forecast for Saturday. Good thing I have a mega-sized box of hot cocoa packets.
IN THE FIELD
There’s not too much going on in the fields right now except prepping for winter. There are still a few crops in the ground, mostly Potatoes and Cabbage.
FROM THE COOP
The chickens are adapting to the colder weather, but they still don’t like the wind, which has been gusting through the farm like there’s about to be a tornado. Egg production is continuing without interruption. Anyone who would like to order any quantity of eggs please let me know as soon as possible.
OTHER GENERAL INFO
The stand will be open Friday – Sundays until November 18th, on the same schedule that’s been in effect the last few weeks. I will do my best to keep a good variety of produce available. Please check the What’s Available page to see the most up-to-date list of what I have and what I’ve been able to get.
That’s it for now. Hope to see you all at the farm soon. Have a great week.
