Monthly Archives: September 2014


Wow, September already! Even though the weather is getting colder, the growing season isn’t over yet! Many of the vegetables we grow are frost hardy – including kale, broccoli,  and brussel sprouts. Also, thanks to our hoophouse – our tomatoes and cucumbers are still doing well. We just harvested all our squash today, and we will be bringing that to market for the next two months.

Here are some pictures of the farm!
