field notes: november 29

After six months of weekly posting, it’s hard not to check in on a Tuesday.  With the end of both the market and CSA, we find ourselves officially in the “off” season.  Don’t fret for us though.  We have plenty of work to keep us busy at the farm, plus we’re enjoying catching up on our fireside reading during these dark evenings.

If you have a hankering for some P&C veggies during our hiatus, head down to the Crooked House Bistro in West Salem for dinner with Bernard!  Jeff just delivered broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, beets, frisee, delicata winter squash, carrots, and fingerling potatoes this afternoon.  The menu is even posted on their website so you can plan ahead!

For now, I’ll leave you with that beautiful fractal romanesco up top.  We’d given up on this experimental crop heading up, but there it is, fantastic in appearance and tasty too!
