This week in the pack we expect to have head lettuce; carrots; sweet turnips; broccoli or cauliflower or cabbage; herb; potatoes; butternut squash; daikon radish; garlic (grown by Stella Nunn at Parkside Farm); and apples (grown by Danny Davison at Fair Acres Farm).

This week on the farm we’ve been working very hard to get the winter crops in.  Bruce started to move hoop houses from the summer crops to winter crops.  We said a fond farewell to Marshall and Hilary who began their big cycling trip today (November 1).

We have only 3 weeks of produce packs left!  There are two preferred ways for everyone to get their deposits back.  1) Let me know by email if you want us to keep it, and apply it to your pack next season; and 2) Let me know by email if you want it back after your last pick up, and, if you want it by cheque or e-transfer.

One morning last week, I went in the cold room and saw that it was organized, and the space very well used.  We knew this change had the marks of Bruce on it.  He is the most likely person to tackle a room and organize it.  Yay Bruce!!  What a fantastic surprise.
