We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! You probably noticed the cold, cold, cold that blew in that day — yet it was the following night that really hit hard. The temperature in our valley fell to 17 degrees…but thanks to Farmer John’s diligent work all day (and well into the evening) Friday, every single row was covered.

We did lose a few things, and others are burned and singed, but all-in-all the farm came through it all right. We’re having to spend a good deal of time cutting off the bad stuff to get to the good, so some of our quantities might not be as bountiful as last week. Still, it’ll all be pretty darned good, considering the circumstances!

For this Wednesday’s farm stand, we’ll have LOADS of beautiful broccoli,

white Snow Crown cauliflower and orange Cheddar cauliflower,

as well as our all-lettuce salad mix; spinach; baby Asian mustard greens; Red leaf lettuce; small heads of Romaine & Butterhead bagged together; bulk sweet white turnips; escarole; bunches of white and purple kohlrabi; watermelon radishes; Napa cabbages; bunches of Dinosaur kale; bunches of chard; bunches of Brussels greens; cilantro; fennel; and anything else we find that wasn’t ruined by the hard freeze.
