last csa

i read where lincoln will be spending 29 million dollars to combat the dreaded ash tree borer. i wonder how many of those dollars will be allocated to hugelkultur response teams. ash is great for that. sweet potatoes did very nicely in a hugelkultur without irrigation. made them as hashbrowns last night - really good, after sungazing probalby my favorite food.  thanks again for all the fun this year.

top 5 disappointments in 2015 csa.

5  carrots. usually they dont grow well for us. this year they didnt even germinate.
4  cantaloupe  need to be planted at the base of the, or hump as my friend calls hugelkultur now.
3  broccoli  justin jones has stopped planting these in the. spring weather is too weird for brocs
2  Lloyd  hard to be disappointed in lloyd for dying but i still am. teh female llamas do not protect goats.  teh only protection they had was "rock" teh old wether who did a good job until mabel killed him a month ago. i am getting out o fteh goat biz i think and back to cows. sure teh neighbors are going to love hearing that.
1  carpula.  still dont have a rough put together to show anyone willing to watch. looks like a winter project and maybe a spring finish. sure barb is going to love hearing that. 

back to the future II predicted the cubs would win the series in 2015.  go cubs!

CSA Extra Innings!

This will NOT be the last week of CSA. We are going to give your sweet potatoes one more week so the last one will be October 15th. Kind of a hodgepodge this week of winter squash, radishes, green, tomatoes and hopefully some watermelon. Eggs are very light this week. The hens must know "Winter is Coming"

See you tomorrow!
