Folks often ask us; "well, what are you going to do now that the market is done?" Truthfully, the list is long, but the pace is very different. During market season the schedule is set and the harvesting is intense. Much of our crops are harvested for the season and now it's time to clean up the garden, the work area and plan for next year. This week our tulip, anemone and ranunculus bulbs have arrived so we will be preparing space for them and getting them in the ground before the end of October. We like to clear some of the garden and get cover crop planted to be able to return essential nutrients to the ground. But next week Paul and I are going to take a breather and re-fuel before we continue with all those tasks.
Thank you for supporting our small farm here in South Surrey. There are not too many farms that are able to open their doors and support a one day a week market and receive as much engagement. This is unique and that is not lost on us. You have made a visit to the farm on Tuesday part of your weekly rhythm and we are so grateful. It may be a rainy last market but please come out and gather your local produce for a Thanksgiving feast or just to nourish you this week.
