Autumn is here and we welcome its arrival. After an especially eventful growing season, your farmers are looking forward to a winter rest. But, we are not there yet! Much lovely fall crops must be harvested, brought in for storage or protected outdoors. The high tunnel is ready for its hat to go back on for the wintertime. We planted it full of greens back in early September. It is nice to keep the plastic off of its top and ends for as long as possible to avoid overheating the plants inside, but it needs to be buttoned up before the first frost.
Out in the fields have a nice blanket of various cover crops that Tom sowed in late July. Sorghum Sudan grass, cowpeas, mung beans and oats cover the Spring fields. These plants growing now are next year's fertility.
Speaking of out in the fields, "Outstanding in the Field" is returning to our farm on October 14th. Chef Ted Habiger from Room 39 in KCMO will be feeding us multiple courses of local delights from our farm and others in the region. Event details and tickets are here.
