Field Notes: Thank you to all who attended the Riverdog Farm Pumpkin Party. The roasted pig and potluck dishes were delicious. The kids really enjoyed the hayride, selecting a pumpkin and feeding the pigs. We hope to see you next year in late October to celebrate Autumn’s harvest at the farm!

Box Notes: With cooler nights on the farm, the tomatoes, peppers and eggplant are slowing down. We are excited to include more leafy greens in the weekly veggie boxes as they become available. Both tops and roots of the turnips can be eaten, like beets. The greens are great braised or steamed. The roots are delicious raw or cooked.
