This Week for U-Pick:  Our permanent herbs beds are all that remain: Lavender, lemon Verbena, Oregano, Thyme, Sage, Parsley, Chives. It's hard to believe we've reach the end of our season together!  Our endlessly beautiful fall turned to mud this week, making the end a bit more sweet than bitter.  After digging bed after bed of carrots under gorgeous skies, the last one was wrestled out of the ground, nearly burying the tractor and ourselves in mud.  It was much more familiar a feeling to be harvesting in those conditions in November than the sunny warm days, but I'm still grateful they were few this year. Hopefully by now you have a bit of a stockpile accumulated to begin the winter season.  If you're cruising through roots and squash faster than you thought, consider stocking up at the extras table this week.  It takes a bit more planning to eat local during the winter months, so stock up now! This week's Farm News includes some favorite holiday recipes that our family loves, as well as some turkey preparation tips.  Thanksgiving truly is my favorite holiday, a perfectly delicious ending to our year of growing food and a perfect time to once again say Thank You for being a part of our farm!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a warm and cozy winter!   This Week's  Recipes: Pickled Daikon Radishes (since it seems I forgot to list it in week #1!)
