September Week 2
Yes, we're still here. We were up in Wisconsin last weekend enjoying the beautiful weather (and some local apples) and let the rest and relaxation overtake us for a bit. It's September now, and while not officially fall, everything is starting to look fall-like. The garden is changing. Some of the plants are drying out and slowing down their production (tomatoes, we will miss you!!), while others are just beginning to enter the world of ripeness (Butternut Squash, we have delicious plans for you). We still have lots of vegetables - new radishes, carrots, lettuce, spinach, beets, chard, and kohlrabi are growing as I type - but things are changing, almost as if the garden knew the calendar had changed to September. We're excited about the new phase of growth and ready to share the harvest.
On another note, its apple time, and we're looking at local (and when we say local, we mean very local) orchards for apple prices. So start thinking about fresh, straight from the orchard apples, and all the pies, jellies, and sauces you can make with them. We'll keep you posted.
