Notes from the Field:

We finished emptying the fields this week. . . no moment too soon!  This past Wednesday evening the sun poured through the trees in the west, imposing communication: "I'm setting;" evoking the feeling: -- there's not much time left.  And we finished pulling the leeks for winter storage.

Farming this time deepens the reverence, appreciation, and wonder of soil, sun, weather, and nature as a whole.  How did some crops make it and not others?  How do we learn from the season?  What do we do with all the storage radishes??

I hope you enjoy this month's bag.  I want to load you with variety and abundance to keep your winter diet in balance - my hope is that this bag will last you into the next!  Recipes this week - some fresh ideas as well as perspective on what may challenge you.

Enjoy and we'll see you next month!
