December 1, 2012:  Where did November go?   Only 25 more days until Christmas.   This autumn has been great, as we have had no snow yet and we are getting alot of things done.   Plowing was put off for at least a month later than we generally do as we have had such an abundant fall harvest of vegetables and I hated to plow them under until we had some serious frosty weather. 

The mizuna, bac choy, spinach, swiss chard, mustard greens, lettuce, beet greens, summer carrots, cabbage, and broccoli were all doing extremely well in the gardens.  Even the peppers were lasting.  Just before our first killer frost, Corne and Cian picked tub after tub after tub of green peppers and they are all stored now in our cold storage.  We should have enough peppers until Christmas I would think.  That "honey do" list is finally getting shorter!   Those odd jobs that were put off all summer are being acomplished now, with Corne's help on ocassion.   Thank goodness Corne is still available.   He has been helping us out at the Toronto Market on Saturdays, giving us a break from time to time.    With 2 months of our winter CSA  under our belts we are getting down to just the root vegetables we have stored for the winter and our winter greens from our greenhouses.  Wednesday and Thursday are our CSA days where the vegetables may be picked up here at the farm or we can deliver them into the Barrie area at one of three locations.

My kids really enjoyed going out to Edencrest, to see the animals and the farm. I was delighted to findout all the fresh CSA food you have available, including the pasture-raised beef.
