We had our first hard frost this week. That means the end of some crops, such as peppers and basil. But many of our fall crops thrive on this cold. Which for our member means two more weeks of delicious vegetables.
Mike and Sarah at Thursday mornings wash-up. Our well water is a little on the cold side now, but at least it wasn't raining as it was on Tuesday. Here they are washing Bolero Carrots and Purple-Top Turnips.
