September 16 TapRoot CSA Farm News

Hello All - Happy Week 25 from the farm!

Photo: Yes it is true....we are opening the farm up on Open Farm Day September 21, 2014. Josh and Tim will be around to host you at TapRoot.

This morning is crisp and cool. As I was heading over here to Canard this morning I could not stop thinking about the  basil. Looking down at the dash on the car I see the outside temperature is 7 degrees. Basil doesn't like the cold and will soon be wilted and black - a sure sign a new season is upon us. Everyone here is bundled up with hats and coats and warm gloves and I have the heater on as I type this newsletter. The work of bringing in the harvest is ongoing however we will ramp it up over the next few weeks and the storage buildings will soon be full.

We sure hope you have a great week!
