Sonoma’s grape harvest is drawing to a close, a true signal that we are shifting seasons here in Wine Country.
It gets dark earlier each evening and we notice it is no longer possible to take a morning walk in the light around 6 am. Halloween decorations do not seem premature as October flies by, but the colors at our farm still alternate between signs of summer and cues to autumn.
But even as we continue to harvest our precious tomatoes, we know that most of what we are picking will soon be frozen or preserved in some way.
And as we’ve done with the other beds at the farm, we will clear away the 800 plants, refresh the soil and plant something else for our winter garden.
While we are always reliant on the weather for success at the farm, in winter, we are even more dependent on “good” weather, so we stick close to what we know works well for us at the farm.
Our chefs make good use of our carrots, whether at the bar or in the kitchen.
Did you know there are many varieties of carrots? Carrots range in color from orange to yellow, white to red to purple!
The farm palette is colorful each season, whether it is a rainbow of tomatoes choices, all the varieties of squash, carrots and radish.
what will we see at the farm growing here?
