Our first real success at winter squash. Its holding nicely in the barn.
So many beets and carrots and winter squash and potatoes and corn… Each row in the big field is like 12 rows in the garden. We planted 55 rows of veggies in the big field next to the heirloom wheat and buckwheat.

We harvested multi-colored maize that Tall will mill into polenta.
We grew carrots for a seed to seed contract with Johnny’s Selected Seeds. We will save the root stock to plant next year. We have about 5 times more than we need. We are finding homes for them at Jackson’s Corner, Spork, Broken Top Bottle Shop, Whole Foods, and Azure Standard.
This was our second season raising buckwheat for Hummingbird Wholesale. We got twice as much!
Aliza and Alex get serious on the potato digger. Late season wind brings up a lot of dirt.
