October Newsletter 2014

October Newsletter 2014 Wow, what a busy month October is. I love October because the weather is usually cooler, of course that hasn’t been true so far this October. We hardly have time to enjoy the nicer weather. We are so crazy busy now. The Pumpkin Patch opened on the 4th and I started delivering CSA vegetables on the 7th.  We’re getting ready for the Fall Harvest Dinner on Nov. 2nd too.  We are getting winter vegetables ready to plant. It’s hard to believe we’ve been doing the Pumpkin Patch for 13 years. It takes a lot of time and...

September Newsletter 2014

September Newsletter 2014Every month when I sit down to write the newsletter, I try to share something new and interesting. I have been told that I share too much personal stuff in the newsletter but I say that this farm is personal and I will continue to be personal.

Animals have to be fed and watered. We have to start getting everything ready for the Pumpkin Patch: signs need to be painted, fences need to be repaired...

June Newsletter 2014

June Newsletter 2014 June is my favorite food month. All of my favorites are ready for harvest in June. My very favorite is sweet corn. I can eat nothing but sweet corn for dinner, the first few days of corn picking. The squash are ready in early June. I love a good squash casserole but just plain squash and onions can’t be beat. The tomatoes are also ready in June and while I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, I love some tomato pie. One of my favorite things is okra and tomatoes or as my family calls it gumbo....
