Winter 2015 (1 of 3)

Well folks, it’s catch up time on the blog. We often get the question in the winter – what do you do? It’s kind of a crazy question to us, because from our view there seems to be no end to the work! So in the next few weeks we will get you caught up on what’s been happening in October, November, December – and let you know what we are doing now!

Pekarek’s Produce Pumpkins and Squash

The CSA ended at the end of September and so did the blog posts, but there was a lot of activity in the end of the year. Farmer’s markets continued into the end of October and as usual, we had a lot of fun with pumpkins and squash.

Most of the year, we watched the pumpkins in disbelief – they looked horrible. We had a wet spring and got in late, then we had some pretty good heat. It turned out that the varieties that usually do poorly did great! The ones that usually do great did poorly.

We had two successful winter markets in November and December. This was the first time we have done these markets and we had a great time! Thank you to all of you who attended.

December 13, 2015 Market – Butternut Squash, Acorn Squash, Sunshine Squash, Kabocha Squash, Spaghetti Squash, Broccoli, Salad Mix, Spinach, Kale, Turnips, Red & Orange Beets, Carrots, Potatoes

We are really hoping to expand these in the future and they have given us thoughts on a winter CSA centered around holidays. Take a look at these pictures and check out all the produce we still had at this time of the year.


Next week: CSAs and seed orders. We are excited for this year’s CSA!!
