Folks,

If you have been with us for any length of time, you know that we try to provide diversity in the boxes.  This fall has been very difficult for vegetables.  Please bear with us. 

Normally we are selling broccoli by now and cauliflower would be in a couple of weeks.  This year is different.  We have a lot of sweet potatoes (as you well know) and watermelon and winter squash.  Most of the crops that we try to have for the fall have not been looking very good. - lima beans, green beans, radishes, - even Diakon radishes are rotting from the roots up.

Thanks you for investing in our farm.  You will definitely get something in your box each week, but it may not have the diversity that we would like.  We are sorry.  Hopefully next year will be better.

Louise
