Things are buzzing along at Vrdnt, and this fall is proving to be one of the busiest seasons yet. If you’re a CSA Member, perhaps you’re picked up on the shift that is happening. Slowly but surely, we’re harvesting more and more cool-season crops and less and less warm-season ones. Soon, crops like peppers and long beans will be a distant memory, replaced by bushy bunches of kale and crowns of broccoli. Despite the relative heat this past week, us farmers are already thinking of impending frosts. Perhaps it’s a bit of PTSD from last February. Curious what this shift actually looks like on the farm? Scroll below to see some shots of Vrdnt - our little slice of ag, nestled in the Lost Pines of Bastrop.
But first, some quick farm updates:
Our November 6th farm tour/volunteer day is quickly approaching. Becky will be giving two tours: one at 10am, and another at 1pm. Bring a picnic and hang out! At some point, we’ll do a bit of weeding for those who feel like getting their hands dirty. No volunteering required to visit the farm and enjoy the space! To RSVP, email us: email@example.com.
Our Secret Garden campsite is open! (Dog friendly!)
Did you see that we posted a Definitive Guide to Storing Your Vegetables?
