Busy September

September 27, 2012

September was full of tomatoes, basil, watering (although it did finally rain, yay!!!) and tours.  We had a great time with the Tapestry Charter School.  They brought about 70 children and harvested all my dry beans as well as getting a good portion of them shelled.  We also found a caterpillar that was covered with parasitic wasp eggs.

We also were a stop on the Tour de Farms ( ) ( again this year.  They stopped here around 10:30 – 11:00 and headed on to Bippert farm in Lancaster.  We rode our bike (actually we both rode the tandem so singular “bike” is appropriate) out to Corfu to join them for the afternoon at Oles’ farm.  We rode our bike back after a delicious meal, fine conversation, and great music (none of this wimpy “ride the bus back” stuff for us!  😉 ).

Today, I must get ready for a UB class to come over this afternoon.  I think potato harvesting is in order…

This Saturday will be the last opportunity for purchasing produce from the stand this year.  We are closing for the season at the end of the month.  If anyone is  interested in green tomatoes, we will be cleaning out the tomatoes in the hoop house.

Hurray for cooler weather and rain!

Until next time,
