Butternut Squash is harvested and safe in the barn for winter storage.
This time of year we are harvesting double time. The regular fresh items are being harvested daily, but we are beginning to tackle the bigger volume items on the farm. Butternut squash, celeriac, sweet potatoes, cabbages, carrots, and beets to name a few.
We harvest these items into apple bins, not the smaller green and yellow boxes. Instead of bunches, and pounds we are harvesting fields worth of produce by the ton. It is an exciting time of year. The storage coolers are being filled so that you can eat all winter long.
Makes a hungry person sigh in relief!!
