UPICK at the farm: ?? May have been a frost last night - we will see if the cherry tomatoes and hot peppers survived the cold  night! Parsley will not be affected - it is very cold hardy!

Cooperative Shares:Mushrooms, fruit, bread, cheese.

FARM NEWS:The leaves are beginning to turn, nights are getting colder, the first frost is on the way, it really feels like autumn now! As the weather cools, the vegetables change too. Roots and greens, storage crops like garlic and onions and winter squash; these are the veggies of fall. Filling, dense, flavorful vegetables are perfect for colder weather; great for soups, stews, casseroles, roasts, etc. Garlic and onions are also good immune-system boosters, helpful as we enter the season of colds and flu. The juicy, watery summer crops, great for re-hydrating on hot days, just don't make sense any more. Isn't it great how nature knows just what our bodies need in each season?

As we approach the last few weeks of the season, many members have wondered about "stock up" opportunities. There will be chances to stock up on many of the wonderful items available at Quiet Creek Farm, including fruit, meats, cheeses, wild Alaskan salmon, pizzas, etc. More information will be coming shortly!

Also, information on member renewal for the 2017 season will be available in the next few weeks. Thank you for your patience!

Your farmers,

John and Aimee Good
