Next week we will harvest the first of our fall cabbages and will have both red and green cabbages at pick-up.  We also plan to start harvesting our fennel.  And, we will  probably have spinach again next week.

We grew several varieties of onions this year and so far have distributed purplettes (the mini red variety), white, and the red torpedo.  Soon we will start bringing our yellow storage and red storage varieties to distribute at pick-ups.

We are also just about finished with our stock of Spanish Roja garlic and will soon be switching to a variety called Music.  If you wanted to try planting some of the Spanish Roja this fall, now is the time to grab a few heads to set aside as seed garlic. (We plan on planting our garlic towards the end of this month.)
