News From the Farm | October 2, 2017

The boxes changed quickly this year, from themes on tomatoes, melons, eggplants and peppers to a preponderance of chard, arugula, radishes and winter squash.  It’s as if we mark the seasons as much by what we eat as by the weather.  Hints of Fall first made themselves known with a change in the quality of the light and sun, both more gentle than before.  In a flash, the temperatures might rise again — we can’t say goodbye to hot weather, but the days are shorter and there’s a Fall smell in the air.  It’s enough to make one believe that the summer may soon pass on its way as Autumn comes around.

The winter squash harvest is well underway here at Full Belly.  Some of the squash will be stored in bins and sold during the winter months.
