- Winter squash (it gets better the longer you let it sit on your counter)
- Thyme or parsley
- Sweet red peppers
- Hot peppers
- Dill or cilantro
- Broccoli or cauliflower
- Cabbage (if there is enough)
- Cucumber or zucchini (could be the last week, enjoy them while you can!)
This will be a quick note as I am going out canvassing at noon. People did not embrace radicchio which is a shame. We will be eating that delicious radicchio salad from Toro Bravo tonight with oxtail deliciousness cooked in the clay pot. It is an all peppers all the time dinner tonight. I am super excited about a “Pisto” I made as well that has onions, peppers, tomatoes and zucchini all cooked for two hours. Then your reheat it and poach eggs in it, YUM!
The goats have arrived. We have 4 beauties getting used to life on the farm. Charlize, Wynonna, Uma and Loraine are roaming in the barn pen and making their voices heard. We can’t wait for kids in the spring and to start making goat cheese again.
We continue to work away at combating the aphid invasion, harvesting the winter squash and prepping the farm for our harvest festival next weekend. The farm share goes through the last week of the month. Don’t stop coming by for your share and don’t forget to stop in on October 14th from 2- 6 for dancing, pizza making, cider pressing and lots of fun.
This has been a very disheartening week. Women have been told on the national stage that our stories and experiences don’t matter. Women have been mocked and put down, but we will show the world that we can not and will not be put down. November 6th is coming! That is why I will spend a part of each day making my voice heard. Please consider doing the same. I am happy to chat with people about the issues on the ballot and candidates that will move our state forward. I will have available a brief that United Unidos (our political action group) put together as a guide to voting this November.
Onward. . .
