Time has a way of accelerating this time of year.  It seems as if it was just weeks ago we were planting a spring crop.  Now the harvest is just about complete.  It would have been nice to have had more rain this past summer.  The period from July 1 through September 30 saw less than four inches of rain.  A typical September has more.  The apples were a bit smaller and the crop quite light due to many trees not having a bloom.

The vegetables from all three farms did quite well even without irrigation.  The winter squash crop is outstanding.  Added varieties are planned for 2015.  The harvest of Adirondack Blue and Red potatoes as well as Peter Wilcox and Reba was just perfect.  In short, the plan is to double the vegetable production next year.  Already the garlic planting will more than triple next year.  All seed orders will be in by December and planting will begin in February.  Many of the hot pepper varieties will continue to be harvested well into the winter as the plants are growing in the greenhouse.  The harvest of Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, listed as the world’s hottest pepper, has been outstanding.

 Pumpkin picking rides will continue until Halloween.  With many pumpkins in excess of 30 pounds and upwards to 50 pounds, the huge stems make those outstanding pumpkins for carving.

Ladies Night at the Farm is scheduled for Friday, November 14 from 6 PM until 9 PM.  Please pre-register at the store or by email farmingct@cox.net.  A full house is expected.

Thanksgiving turkeys will be available again this year.  We raise many heirloom varieties such as Narragansett Bourbon Red, Holland, and Bronze.  There is no comparison to the flavor and moisture of a home-grown turkey free of hormones and antibiotics.  A $25.00 non-refundable deposit is required.  The weights will range from 10 to 45 pounds.  Placing your order early will assure you of the size you need.

The poinsettia sales season begins in Mid-November and Christmas tree sales will begin for cut your own trees Saturday, November 29.  Pricing will be same as last year.  Pre-cut Douglas, Balsam, Fraser, and Canaan from two other Connecticut farms will be available.

Beef, pork, chicken, and turkeys all raised on our farm are always in stock.  Please call for availability of sides of beef.
