Final Harvests

Summer is almost officially over (I saw the first wooly bear caterpillar today and the brown bands outnumbered the black so it should be a less harsh winter...if you go by these kinds of signs and symbols. Keep an eye on the acorns.) and with that the final harvests are coming in. It has been a tough season due to a very cold and wet spring that reduced about 100 seedlings to slug grub at the carriage house farm, but things have been marginally better at the Farm School. Today's harvest was a good one and here are some photos.

Final carrot harvest



Swiss chard (which is is the soup pot right now)

Last potatoes (russets, Yukon Golds, and reds)

The whole lot.
