Harvest for March 13, 2012

Today promises to be a very warm day in March… we are enjoying the warmth and sun, and praying that it doesn’t fortell another hot summer like last year.  Meanwhile, the farm is a hotbed of activity; we planted 87 fruit trees last Wednesday and Thursday, worked in the greenhouse on Friday seeding tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers by the hundreds, along with dozens of other vegetables, and then transplanted kale and collards on Saturday.  Yesterday we moved our big 30x 96 high tunnel in preparation for planting the early tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers on Friday.  In short, the season is off to a roaring start, with plants being seeded and transplanted everyday.   We have a great harvest today, which includes the following;



Lettuce in the greenhouse in March

Head lettuce
Purple top turnips
Jerusalem artichokes
Green onions

Sweet potatoes

Winter Squash
Baby lettuce
Hope you’re able to get out and enjoy the weather today, and I’ll see you at the pick-up.

    Our share (1/2 share) included an orange squash in the shape of a fat tear drop. It was not an acorn, spaghetti, or butternut squash. But it was delicious! I roasted it in the pan with a loin of pork and I believe it was the tastiest winter squash I’ve ever had! Please tell me what kind was it?
