News from the Farm…

happy september friends. i hope this email finds you well on this beautiful day. we started our sweet potato harvest last week! they’ll cure for a couple of weeks so that their starches convert into sugars, and then you’ll see them in the share. you may notice that the season is beginning to shift away from the summer crops and toward more fall crops. the melons are done for the year, so i hope you all ate your fill, and the cucumbers, summer squash, and zucchini are starting to slow down, with the tomatoes not too far behind. you’ll start to see more greens and roots in the share as we move into autumn. may you get the chance to take a moment and enjoy the sweet scent of the turning in the air today.

your farmer,
Ray
