Week 21

  • Leeks
  • Garlic
  • Tomatoes
  • Lettuce
  • Sweet Pepper
  • Kale
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Fennel

The peppers are slowing way way down and we are picking them quite a bit more green.  Using them immediately they will taste more like green peppers but they will continue to ripen up on your kitchen counter.  The white-ish “gypsy” peppers actually taste really nice at the white/yellow stage before they turn orange.

Fennel is making its second and last appearance of the season.  Tomatoes are phasing out and next week there will most likely be a haul of green tomatoes for everyone.  First leeks of the season are here, and they will be featured probably twice again before the end of the season.

We’ll continue to have lettuce a time or two more this season, and there will also be some chicory salad greens such as “sugarloaf,” “escarole,” and “radicchio.”  Arugula and spinach are also in the plans as far as greenery.  Carrots will continue and have started to get some real girth on some of them.

The rye and vetch cover crop mix is starting to come up nicely in some spots.  The sudan & clover cover crop mix we planted in the summer is looking very nice right now.

See you next week, and enjoy these beautiful fall days.

– Your farmers.
