Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. -Albert Camus
Weather forecast for Market hours: Sunny, clear & perfect! Starting in the 60s and in the mid-70s by noon!
Music: They couldn’t be much different: on the west stage, Little Stevie‘s eclectic one-man New Orleans electric mojo band on the west side; on the east stage the soothing and cerebral Dave Kelly‘s acoustic guitars and mandolin.
Make fries with that. There are lots of potatoes in season as well! Get some spuds (traditional or sweet) and make up some over fries (recipes below).
For gardeners: Plant now or ‘til next spring hold your peace. Enjoy these last weeks of 2014 gardening – the weather is great for getting a landscaping plant in the ground.
Let’s talk crops:
What’s a kiwi berry? A. T. Buzby Farm‘s got this nutrient dense super fruit. They say: They’re grown on our farm using organic practices. They are amazingly sweet – just pop them in your mouth. Plus – Corn is still plentiful and very sweet. Great time to freeze some to enjoy all winter. If interested in 50 ears to freeze just ask, $15. Last week for cantaloupe, too.”
DanLynn Organic Farms will have broccoli, kale, sweet potatoes (yam), eggplant, tomatoes, Swiss chard, multicolored and red peppers, collard greens, Napa cabbage, acorn and butternut squashes
