November already?

Wow- we cannot believe November is already here! We have had a busy fall, with many plantings and subsequent flooding. We also added some chickens to the field, and have been making our deliveries to our vegetable subscribers. Although we lost many crops to the rain, we have still had a productive fall. Below are some more pictures of our farm from this season. The first set are from the first week of our CSA, with my mom helping us pack our hot peppers and herbs. Adam is the radish-buncher and I like to weigh out green beans. Also pictured are some of our acorn squash. My parents have been patient and kind enough to let us use their garage for a storage and packing space while our house is being finished (that's another story...).
