Still in the GARDEN!!!!

I can't believe we still have stuff growing in the garden.  I mean lots of stuff.  I went out to the garden on Thanksgiving Day hoping I'd find some fresh herbs and a few carrots and I got a huge bounty.

Parsley, Sage, rosemary, thyme, cilantro, dill seeds, tarragon.
Fennel and carrots are below.  We have LOTS of carrots.   All about 4 inches long.
We have celery, kale, swiss chard (it won't stop growing), arugula, pak choi, maybe some random beets, and some asian greens that are about 3 feet tall.  There are smaller kohlrabi and maybe a random leek or spinach or so as well.  Just stuff that decided to take off and grow.

Maybe the frost this weekend will get everything-- so if you want anything, call up and we'll show you where to pick.  Might as well get it now as we may then let the chickens and pigs root through it after.

The carrots are really good.  I just cleaned them with a rough sponge thing and didn't need to peel them-- I don't know why all this stuff decided to really grow and thrive in November-- but it did.

For future reference, Angelic Organics used to offer a special 4-delivery "winter" share of these vegetables that take off in the cool and wet of fall. 4 boxes spread out over 6 weeks or so in November and early December. They charged an extra $100 or so for it, and probably didn't sell as many shares as for summer. It was totally worth it. One year the cold set in early and we only got 3 boxes, but hey, that's CSA life for you!

That's a great idea. Though if you want some of the veggies-- I won't charge the summer csa folks this year. It must have been all the great rain we've had the last few weeks and warmer weather.
