October 16th and 19th

Sunday our friend and owner/chef from Flux came over with his beautiful family to carve one of our monster pumpkins!  We enjoyed a glorious fall day sipping cider, cracking walnuts and playing with Simon and the cats.  It's been so much fun having their new restaurant in town, try it out if you haven't.  Like me, Jason loves what he does and it shows in his work!! 

Well here it is, the last pick up week for summer shares.  I know it sounds cliche, but this year REALLY DID fly by.  With the first frost just coming a few days ago, my head is still in September.  When I realize the actual date, I start to panic a bit because we still have loads to do and tons of vegetables to bring in for the winter!!  We hope you enjoyed your summer share as much as we enjoyed growing it for you.  Please spread the good word about Little Ridge Farm and we hope to see you as a part of the LRF community for many years to come!!!

And Order your turkey!!  These fabulous guys will be ready this Saturday the 20th, we have a few left, don't miss out on happily raised meat!!

And finally and MASSIVELY HUGE THANK YOU to my valued employee and friend, Jean.  She has been invaluable on this farm; many hours logged sweating, freezing, getting wet and muddy, laughing, talking and well down right working hard!!!  She has been my constant, never complaining, always moving, my get up and go when I am exhausted.  Plus she comes with a husband, Dave, who has been equally sucked into the farm volunteering, even working in her stead for a short stint when she was injured (!) and farm/animal sitting allowing myself and Zach to have breaks away and vacations.  How will I replace her?!?!?  She is irreplaceable!!!  Jean you are much appreciated and will be missed.

This Week's Bounty: lettuce, pac choi, kale, cabbage, fennel, potato, carrot, beet, pepper, eggplant, tomato, winter squash, leeks, onions, garlic!!!
