Philistines vs. Philippines

Hello!

Are you ready for more rain? As you read this, it’s probably raining cats and dogs. Just what we needed … more water. Seriously, it’s like living in the Pacific Northwest but without the good seafood.

I’m keeping it brief tonight because I’m typing in the dark. There is one downside to living in one big room altogether a la the Ingalls family – we need to turn off the lights when it’s bedtime for the boys. We’ve been letting them stay up a bit late but that came back to haunt us this morning when I got a phone call from the grade school telling me that Ben fell asleep on the bus this morning and ended up traveling all the way to Eureka High School. They found him when they did their walk-through at the end of the route. Don’t even ask me how an entire bus load of kids walked past our little porkchop without saying something helpful like, “Hey, that kid is asleep!” It’s a fend-for-yourself kind of world, I guess.

The funny boy thing that happened this week involved a Lego battle. Our little neighbor boy came over to play. When he walked in, Noah said, “Let’s have a battle!” Fresh from church, the other little boy said, “Yea, let’s battle the Philistines.” Noah then responded, “No, you mean the Philippines!” Yikes.

This weekend will be much the same as far as vegetables go … loads of tasty winter squash, fall greens, turnips, carrots, beets, and more! This will be the LAST WEEKED for the summer veggies because of the Saturday night frost in the forecast. So this is your last chance to stock up on sweet peppers and eggplant (if we even have any left). The sweet peppers will be available in mass quantities. Be sure to take advantage of our 5 lbs. for $10.00 deal and then just freeze them for later use in the winter. (Less than 5 lbs. is $3.00 per pound.)

Here’s what we’ll have on Saturday …

Sweet Potatoes
Broccoli
Winter Squash
Parsnips
Eggplant (?)
Leeks
Sweet Peppers
Green Bell Peppers
Summer squash (?)
Potatoes
Carrots
Fennel
Swiss chard
Head Lettuce
Beets
Onions
Garlic

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at blueschoolhouse@yahoo.com, although during the farm season we can’t guarantee that we’ll be checking the email as often as usual. Our phone service is won’t be restored until next week!

Best,
Mercy

Just a note to tell you how much I enjoyed the CSA again this year. I'll miss it next year, but wish you the best.
