I awoke from such a dream

I awoke from my dream last night in a panicked sweat.  Running out to the fields it was dark and unfamiliar.  I couldn't find my way and I just kept calling out to my lost friends, "TOMATOES TOMATOES!"  But alas they were gone.

Yes that is a bit of an exaggeration in the sense of the surreal dream but it makes a good story and the ending is sadly true.  The tomato waterfall has run all but dry for another season.  The high tunnels being converted to fall greens and the mighty 12 foot tall plants occupying space on the compost pile.
This can be a tough time of year for a farmer, pulling out plants you started before February.  With each yank a small sigh, yet I'm reminded of the cyclical nature of life.  With the coming season great things, a little more free time and the tomatoes will surely be back next year.
Don't forget we’re planning on having a Fall CSA.  This is an awesome time to get sweet greens, amazing carrots.  Potentially life changing potatoes.  Ginger that will defy even your wildest dreams.  More details will follow.
