End of the Season Thank You

Farmer Pam and her weekly helpers (Michaela and Jana)
 We had such a lovely season this year! Blessed with no hail, few grasshoppers, and unseasonably mild temperatures, our garden exploded with an amazing amount of beautiful vegetables, fruits, and herbs.

We want to thank all of our garden helpers for their hard work, and we thank each and every person that enjoyed eating our vegetables this year.  You are the reason we are able to do the work we love.

We hope to see you again next year, and stay warm this winter!

One of the mid-October share baskets for this year Includes chives, basil, carrots, red and golden beets, turnip, bell and anaheim peppers, chinese cabbage, arugula, spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, turnips, garlic, summer squash, celery, bok choy, and cucumber.  .

The Annual Garden Pizza Party

We want to thank everyone who came out to the Garden Pizza Party  this past Saturday.  We had so much fun talking with everyone, giving tours of the garden, and eating great food.  The weather was also perfect for spending the evening outside.  Here are a few photos from the event!
Everyone got a pumpkin!

The popcorn stalks grow so tall!
