This is going to be short and sweet friends, we still have bean picking to do and a family dinner up at Granddad’s in just over an hour. It has been a busy, productive week on the farm where we continue to “hack away” ( a Farmer Paul expression) at the fall farm tasks. Garlic planting is nearly complete. The bulk of the crop,some 6000 cloves, thankfully underground. The last of the season’s Jonathan apples have been picked and pressed into glorious cider for the cool nights ahead. Fall plantings are cultivated, the high tunnel planted, and now we are picking beans? What? Yep,an experimental late planting of green beans has come through 2 frosts (protected by a floating row cover) and emerged with the most amazing beans we have tasted. So, there is no time for writing, my hands have to remain occupied picking. Wishing you all a lovely autumn week ahead. We are looking forward to a visit with our Boston relatives: Aunt Phoebe and dear cousin Ellie. Family fall fun time ahead.
