Box Contents:

¾ lb Mixed Sweet Peppers

1 ¼ lb Early Girl Tomatoes

2 ea Acorn Squash

¾ lb Arugula

1 hd Napa Cabbage

1 bu Parsley

Box Notes: This is the first week of winter squash! The acorn squash is always the first squash of the season because it ripens faster and we harvest it before the other varieties. The fall greens harvest is starting to flow in earnest. With arugula and Napa Cabbage in this week’s box, we have cabbage and little gem lettuce coming soon. The field of leeks was recently weeded and the crop is looking great. We’ll begin the leek harvest in December.

Field Notes: We are pleased to begin selling the straw from the grain we harvested this year. The timing of the straw sales is critical because we don’t want the beautifully baled and stacked straw to get wet in the first rains. This year, we have about 3000 bales of straw to sell. Today we sold 512 bales and soon we’ll sell the rest. One of the requirements for organic dairies is that the straw used for bedding has to be certified organic. Because our straw is CCOF certified organic, we are able to sell it to the organic dairies in northern CA.
