Flashback 2020: High Tunnel Winter Growing
It's almost October and winter is just around the corner! There's only 2 more weeks of the farm share left and a little more than a month before the farm stand officially closes for the season. Again, it feels bittersweet. On one hand we get a little rest and and on the other, we won't see the folks we've shared this extremely challenging season with. One thing for sure, for us, it will go by quickly with all of the planning for next season.
The fields are finally beginning to dry out and give our fall crops a break. We harvested sweet corn, broccoli, broccolini, and even spinach over the weekend, and it all looks amazing. I really wish we would have had normal weather conditions over the summer, we experienced so much loss.
Both of our hight tunnels are cleared out and we're preparing for winter growing. It feels like we get another chance after the crazy season we went through. We should have fresh greens through March if all goes well, stay tuned.

WHAT TO USE FIRST
DID YOU KNOW: Baby Carrots
Turns out they are either immature carrots, hence their small size, or pieces of larger, thin carrots that are cut into pieces. The latter idea came from Mike Yurosek, a California farmer who got tired of chucking blemished carrots away and started cutting and peeling the vegetables into tiny perfection. In 2010, carrot farmers got together and started promoting baby carrots as an alternative snack food — a successful campaign that has plenty of people snacking on carrots instead of chips.
