FALL IS HERE! With the cooling of the days and nights here in Oklahoma and the beginning of our Fall Farm-To-School program and Fall/Winter CSA Membership, Phocas Farms is in full swing planting our cool weather crops.
Brassicas (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage) will be a part of the Farm-To-School program produce this fall, as well as a part of the share received by our loyal CSA members.
Sweet potatoes will be harvested in October, cured or hardened-off for storage purposes, and ready to distribute to our CSA members in November, just in time for Thanksgiving dinner.
The okra is still in full growdom (a new word for your farming dictionary). Look at the size of that okra. This summer's downpour of rain did the okra well. Nothing more beautiful in the vegetable garden. The flowers remind me of beautiful white hibiscus blooms.
The Swiss Chard is peeking through the ground in the hoop house. Can't wait for that spinach-like veggie to stir-fry up some greens.
Beautiful kale. Dreaming of Kale Chips.
The carrots are just peeking through the ground. These sweet gems will be a part of the diets of the children reaping the nutritious benefits of Edmond's Farm-to-School program, as well as enjoyed by our CSA members.
The turnips are beautiful...succession planted...will be harvested throughout most of the Fall/Winter CSA season. Turnip hash?? Check out this yummy recipe here.
Be sure to get your membership reservation and forms into Steve by October 1st. We're looking forward to seeing your smiling faces again soon.
From our farm to your table, have a blessed day!
