Fall boxes

Hi friends of Luxy,

We have 2 $50 fall boxes left for sale.  You can order a fall box for pickup at the farm or home delivery for an extra $5.  They will be available Wednesday, October 23rd from 5-7pm and include the following:

  • 1 acorn squash
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 delicata squash
  • 5 lbs potatoes
  • 2 lbs carrots
  • 2 lbs beets
  • 1 bunch kale or bag of spinach
  • 1 bunch turnips
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1/2 lb garlic
Our phone isn't working for some reason, so please email if you're interested!

Jonny, Joséphine and Kim have harvested the rest of the potatoes and are cracking garlic bulbs into individual cloves to plant next week.  We still have enough vegetables left in the ground and in the greenhouse for the remaining 5 weeks of farmers' markets.  After which point, assuming the irrigation equipment, row cover, weight bags, hoops, and black plastic mulch have been removed from the field, we will finally get to rest (sort of.)  Planning for next year is an on-going job; there are seeds to be ordered, interns to hire, intern accommodations to update, planting schedules to create, bookkeeping to be done, CSA deposits to collect, marketing material to design, etc.  Ah, the life of a veggie farmer!  Even when there are no vegetables to tend to, the work doesn't end.  Today is a rainy, miserable day - stay warm everyone!
