End of the Line

It seems but a week ago that I was planting seeds in the greenhouse and now we’ve just delivered the last box.  Overall, this has been one great summer growing season and we appreciate all of you who have been along for the ride.  We had consistent rains through early August which helped establish  good crops and no crazy weather: no tornadoes, huge winds, or bad hail.  

This time of year, like many, we feel like eating high calorie foods and sleeping.  It’s the fall where our bodies ready themselves for winter.  At least for us, after five months of vegetable growing every day, we’re spent.    
Even Coffee Doesn’t Help Sometimes
Don’t worry, Lida Farm’s never sleeps for long.  A vacation over MEA weekend, and we’re looking towards some winter growing.  After a winter’s rest, we get just as excited as ever for spring planting and we’ll be be ready to roll for yet another season!
In the box: 
  • Long Pie Pumpkin: Oblong Orange Squash 
  • Regular Pie Pumpkin
  • Acorn or Red Kuri Winter Squash
  • Fresh Sage and Rosemary
  • Yellow Onion
  • A couple Sweet Peppers: These plants just won’t die off…
  • Parsnips: No, not funky carrots…you need to cook these.
  • Swiss Chard 
  • Spinach
  • Rutabaga
