CSA Pickup Reminder Thursday Nov 1 Cdale and Friday Nov 2 Marion

Posted 10/31/2017 1:41pm by Jill Rendleman.

So nice and warm today.....sun out and no wind so we moved Big Cool, our largest high tunnel, for winter plantings.  Took me, Abby, Cleto, and Bill about 3 hours to prepare this 30x100 high tunnel, for moving.  The moving took about 30 min only.  So nice to free up the soil Big Cool was covering all summer.  Now that soil will get real rain and sunlight all winter long.  We will soil test and make sure there are healthy microbes and nutrients working over the winter to restore the soil after a long summer of tomatoes and heat.  A little clover, sea kelp, and worm castings will make it happy after working so hard to make heirloom tomatoes.  Its nice to give the soil a winter vacation and treat it with the care and respect it deserves!    

So whats in the box this week?  Thinking there will be some kale, spinach, specialty turnips, beets, parsley, onions......but not totally sure about all that.  When the frost forecast came up we had to cover all the outside plantings.......I still haven't looked in all to see what got toasted by the freezes......but most likely the basil!!!
