Dear CSA Member,

I’m not sure how much positive energy a potato can carry, but this year, the potatoes that we have pulled from the ground have raised our spirits and brought a bit of  joy to the years’ harvest.  They are just beautiful to look at and delicious to eat.  I don’t think we have ever had such a fine potato crop.  If no unforeseen natural disaster is lurking, you should have a good share of potatoes throughout the fall.

The fields are being readied for winter as spent crops are tilled under and a cover crop of winter rye is broadcast.  The winter rye will sprout and grow even in the cold fall conditions and will blanket the fields through the winter months.  Next spring it will start to grow again and will be tilled under when we plow.  It acts as a cover crop for the winter and organic matter in the spring.

Enjoy the vegetables-Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
