This Time of Year

All the tomatoes, peppers and eggplants are off the fields. If they didn't make it off they are finished. We've had some very hard frosts.

 There are new harvests in the hoop house...french breakfast radishes.

Lots of root crops to sell and store..carrots, beets, winter radishes and a surprise crop of scallions I had sort of forgot about.

Vegetable baskets are still going out. It's nice to be able to add some English walnuts. The baskets are a mix of summer and fall.

Ever try making walnut butter?  It's nice to be able to make your own nut butters out of your own nuts.

There are lots of hardy greens right now. Some from outside, some from in the hoop houses.  Chards, kales, spigiarello.

And dry beans to pick. I've lost count of how many kinds. Just lots. It's been tough to get them all dry.
A late spring planting and a bit too much rain this fall. Some will be seed, and some will just be good eating.

These are the hoop house greens. There are lots of lovely little greens now. Many, many mustards, kales, arugula and chards. Good stuff.

It never ends. It just goes on...differently. But it goes on.

Love the mix of heirloom varieties. You are an inspiration. I look forward to growing dried beans next year for the first time.
