A late fall snow

Love it or hate it there's a certain je ne sais quoi to the first snow of the year.  Though this is a bit early for my personal taste.  The irony being as a farmer an insulating layer of snow is desirable to protect the soil from winter's cold.

It's hard to complain about snow in December and something tells me that we better get used to.  But I would like to propose this trade to old man winter.  How about early December snow for an early spring this sounds like a deal to me.

Speaking of deals we are keeping them going on the farm for your enjoyment this week

We're sure that you're a little sore from the shoveling so for your anti inflammatory needs we're offering 25% Turmeric 1.50 an oz.

Beets 4lbs for 11.50

Potatoes 5lbs for 11.50

David's very own desert island tomato(Juliets) dried to flavor concentrated perfection.

Usually $5/oz  now $10 for 3oz

Sweet Baby Kale, the first cutting on this planting

$6/bag  Double size bag for $10

Even sweeter carrots

Buy 1lb for $5 get 1.5lb

Arugula $6/bag

Braising Greens $6/bag

Baby Spinach- $6/bag.
