Farm News: “It’s amazing what sun can do for vegetables!” is Farmer Chris’s deep thought for the week. What a nice, hot, sunny weekend, helping the broccoli and other crops to rebound from wetness. We hope you are enjoying Indian Summer, remember our Gleaning event is on the farm this Sunday from 10am-noon, together we’ll harvest some crops that have been left behind for various reasons, and donate the produce to Long Island Cares food bank. If you are on Long Island (or heading our direction), we have our Pumpkin Festival “funpass” every Sat and Sun in October from noon-4pm including a bounce house, pony rides, pedal kart track, and farm train which are a lot of fun for kids. Free for CSA members!
