Final Farm Stand of the Season
Later this week I am very lucky to have a group coming with the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps. Since this will be my last opportunity to have a large number of working hands, I had to make the decision that we'll be pulling up the majority of the plants this week. By taking up all the plants this week, the plan for next week is to start tilling the soil and planting winter rye as a cover crop (while the temps are still warm enough for the seeds to germinate).
Although this week will be our last regular farm stand, the plan is to have an alotted time of veggie deliveries for another month (like we did at the start of the season). These deliveries would include the winter greens, onions, pumpkins and winter squash.
Hope to see you in front of the chapel on Wednesday to celebrate such a wonderful season!
