HAKUREI TURNIPS OR BEETS
RED CABBAGE OR SPINACH
CILANTRO, DILL OR RADISHES

NEXT WEEK: You're on your own 'til Springtime. We recommend stocking up at the BadSeed Farmers Market this Friday (1909 McGee 4-9 pm) and throughout the winter, every Friday 4-8 pm.
Another growing season is drawing to a close with this the last week of the extended CSA season. Overall, it was a successful year with full shares through Spring, Summer and Fall. Potatoes and onions did very well. The lettuces, zucchini, cucumbers and broccoli also enjoyed the cooler temperatures and plentiful rain.
Winter came early this year with a low of 10 deg. F this morning. We breathed a sigh of relief when we took the double layers off of the high tunnel beds today and all looked undamaged. These cold snaps remind us that winter growing is a gamble. So, while we can we are clearing out the high tunnel for the last week of the CSA and for the Bad Seed Farmers Market on Friday. If you haven't made it down before or if you are a die-hard regular, there is nothing like this market to get you in the mood for Thanksgiving. Hope to see you all there!
