Roma tomatoes

Those Roma tomatoes I promised you last week will definitely be in your share this week.  We picked 4 crates of them yesterday. Plenty of slicing tomatoes as well.

Hope you liked the Delicata Winter Squash. You’ll get more this week.

Zucchini and peppers are still kicking out. Swiss chard, beets, turnips and lettuce look good.

You’ll get the last of the basil as well as your weekly garlic.

Pole beans have produced an extra crop due to the warm September weather.

Our 3 apple trees have produced fruit this year.

It’s the biggest crop we’ve

ever gotten from these trees which we planted so long ago. We’re still trying to determine if they’re actually ripe because we’re not sure what variety they are, the tags having disintegrated. We’ll have some for tasting.

Three Roods Farm will be featured in the Soil and Conservation District’s Fall Farm Tour on October 3rd from 10am – 4pm. This is a good time for prospective CSA members to see the farm.  Tell your friends/family about this opportunity.  Remember that our harvest that weekend will be on Sunday October 4th.

Interns Evan and Julie

A fall crop of interns has landed.  Evan Dayringer lives at the Strawbale Studio but spent yesterday helping out at 3RF. Julie Bojanowski has come to spend the fall and winter with us. She’s small but very strong and energetic. Eileen, pictured with the Roma tomatoes, also came from the Strawbale Studio yesterday to help us here. The Strawbale Studio is dedicated to the art of natural building. I highly recommend you not only visit the website, but take some time to attend an event or workshop there. You and your family will be amazed to see what is happening right here in Oxford, Michigan!   www.strawbalestudio.org
