LAST SUMMER SHARE
2020 has certainly been an abnormal year. And for all the no fun it has brought, time still has flown by. And for some reason I feel energized and motivated to farm a successive season rather than bundle up and sleep like I usually do this time of year. Unfortunately Maine's winter will prevent me from firing up the greenhouse and starting tomato seeds right away, but what it does provide is time for planning. I already have a healthy list started of ideas, changes, reflections, projects.... to propel me through winter and into spring. AND a healthy fridge full of colored veg to nourish me. Do you?! I still have a few Holiday & Winter Shares available. And if you aren't sold by those, be sure to check out our weekly FarmDrop!! https://littleridge.farmdrop.us
The welcomed rain gave a much needed drink to my fall crops. They are a bit smaller than usual, but they are MUCH bigger than just 2 weeks ago when I thought I would be serving you chinese "leaves" in stead of chinese cabbage! The deer have been enjoying them as well which means they must be extra tasty. The lettuce seemed to be their favorite, so you will have to get creative with salads this week : )
Last Friday was my 45th birthday and I have been enjoying a few gifts since then ... I have been slightly addicted to after lunch chai. So I was gifted double chai spice loose leaf tea and homemade ginger cookies to dip. Perfect for a fall day!!
I hope you are finding joy in little things and filling your bellies with good food. THANK YOU for loving Little Ridge Farm and for trusting us to serve you. We are excited to continue our CSA and use FarmDrop as a complimentary service. We hope you find both of these a light in your family's lives.
This Week's Bounty: a bit o' lettuce, chinese cabbage, pac choi, savoy cabbage, carrot, onion, leek, potato, red/golden beets, green/red tomato, hot pepper, parsley and your choice of winter squash or pie pumpkin
