Most of the summer crops are now tilled under and the winter rye that was planted as a winter cover crop has sprouted.  The trees are beginning to reach their fall color peak and it is getting cold working in the field.  Only the hearty fall crops remain and they are beautiful as they respond to the heavy dew every morning and the cold temperatures.

Finally the first garlic will be in your share this week.  We have finished breaking the heads into individual cloves and now can start to distribute the remaining harvest to the CSA shares.  The cloves will be planted in a couple of weeks and will wait underground until next spring.

This time of year the weeks just slip by so quickly.  If you would like to order honey or maple syrup, please make a note to download the form on line from the farm website, www.stoneledgefarmny.org and mail it to the farm.  We will be coming to the end of the CSA season the 3rd week in November and honey and maple syrup make great holiday gifts. Quite a few members have mentioned to me that they like to stock up for the winter months.  We may have some extra coffee if you would also like to order more for gifts or for yourself.  I will let you know how to order extra coffee next week after we distribute October Coffee Shares.

Enjoy the vegetables-Deborah, for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
