AVALON FARMS:

Well, we have achieved the elusive COVID antibodies. Yay, us. We took all recommended supplements and were fever free after 5 days. Really not that bad….but the residual weakness, terrible tastes, etc are the worst! 

Thankfully all the fall transplants were in the ground before we got sick (mostly). We wondered why it was SO exhausting. Then the next day Wendy had 101 fever. They did get planted. Watered by way too much rain and ignored by the farmers. We’ll see what we get in a month. 

Transplants consisted of: sprouting broccoli/broccolini, green cabbage, napa cabbage, kohlrabi, bok choi, semposi and other greens.

Direct seeded were: zucchini, yellow squash, zephyrs, cucumbers and green beans. Had intended to plant carrots, beets and radishes, but that hasn’t happened yet.

Martin's Farmstand:  Honey


Hello,
It is almost autumn already. Tomatoes are at their peak. Most of the time we have a few boxes of canners packed and ready to go with no need to order ahead. We also have lots of yellow beans by the box or by the pound. We dug the first sweet potatoes today and carrots are abundant. Storage onions are cured and ready to bag. As we get to it we bag onions or you can fill a bag of whatever you like.
Peter extracted about 2,000 lbs of honey and today he left for PA with 97 of his hives. He hopes that the bees he has left up here winter well however he is spreading his risk by taking some of his hives to a warmer climate for the winter. He can also start making splits earlier in the spring down there and bring stronger hives up in the spring that can better use the early spring flowers. We have honey to sell now and if all goes well he should have bees to sell in the spring for those of you that wish to become beekeepers. Peter and Carl also still have several butcher hogs (organic feed, pasture raised) that are not spoken for. Daniel

Grumpy Goat:  Missing cream!


Hey everyone. This is a quick shout out to see if anyone accidentally grabbed a Bair Trax Dairy Cream out of the fridge yesterday. Let me know if you did so we can rectify the situation. All dairy products in the fridge are preordered through the Bair Trax Dairy herdshare. So we have a sad customer missing their already paid for cream. If interested in joining the herdshare let me know and I can get you info.

Also remember – no bread for Friday or Saturday pickup this week. You can order fro Tuesday. Thanks!
