This Friday, October 24th is National Food Day and we will be at Community Middle School. We promised to share photos of the farm with the students we are visiting so here are some favorites. (We also promised to share pumpkin seeds from our pumpkins so I better get roasting!)
They say there is a very real likelihood of our first frost tonight and Kevin covered the remaining chard and lettuce with row cover. The broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage can withstand a frost but the last of the eggplant, peppers and tomatoes were harvested ahead of schedule in an effort to save the final share of these fall crops for our Tuesday share distribution. It's been an amazing season, with so much to be thankful for including a dedicated team, mild summer temperatures, thriving plants and enthusiastic members. It's hard to believe the season is over for another year.
Now that another season at Appelget Farm is drawing to a close and the days are getting short, I have some spare time to finally write a blog post.
This blog is about our small family farm and homestead located in Central New Jersey. We grow for our own table but we also grow for the tables of our families, friends and neighbors through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.
