An adventure awaits

Well, I am off to Italy for a few days to attend Terra Madre, a sustainable food conference in Torino.  It is very exciting, although I am unsure what to expect!  There will be farmers and food producers from all over the globe, which is kind of a mind-blowing concept to me right now.  So, I am going with an open mind with the intent of sharing and learning as much as possible.  I am almost sad to be leaving as we are in the midst of harvest time bringing in beets, potatoes, and carrots, but I am happy to know that there are many hands keeping the farm chugging along - I am sure they won't skip a beet without me:)  Ciao for now!
a happy beet harvest: Becky, Eric, Bridget, Jean & Josh

Greens keeping warm in the mini-tunnles

I found my camera the other day! On it I found some lovely pictures from the field this summer...perfect warm sunny shots for a blustery October day. Here is the winter squash field, a shot from within "Thunder", one of the tomato tunnels, and the bean field. The winter squash is sweetening up in the basement, the tunnels are just about ready to be rolled onto greens from the winter.  And we should have some great dried beans as well for the winter market.
