Even without that wild news, we had and exciting week since I last wrote. First, there was the case of the flying row cover! We were eating lunch last Friday (I had my usually gigantic tomato sandwich(es), yum!), when Peter looked up and spotted it, one of our 160 foot row covers billowing in the air! It must have been over a hundred feet in the air and it was snaking around dancing and rolling. Somehow, I have become the kind of person that takes a video, but for the life of me, I can’t figure out how to put it into this email but here is a link to it:https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2h20Cp9NhW0clJzLTQzeHJmNTQ/edit?usp=sharing. You will hear us laughing and amazed and see the lanky beauty undulating in the sky. Spoiler alert: it does come down and it didn’t destroy anything! Less of a spoiler, more of a it-didn’t-spoiler.
Other great news? We have wintersquash! I was wondering if that was going to happen, considering how weedy that section of the farm became. But it persevered! This week there will be acorn squash and spaghetti squash at market!

And I Love acorn squash. I just cut it in half, place it on a pan, and bake it until it is soft. Then I scoop out the seeds, add a little salt, and eat it with a spoon, with the rind as a bowl. Easy and delicious. Lots of people stuff them or make a
With all that, I will add, this week at market, you may not see quite as much variety as you have come to expect from us, as some of our summer plantings have kicked the bucket (beans, cukes, summer squash, melon), however, don’t lose cheer, more delicious food is on the way (Arugula, Tatsoi, and other exciting greens, Ginger, Radishes, Turnips!). Have a great day and I hope to see you soon!
