089 Turkey processing on the farm, pigs to the processor and the vegetable garden is still producing
This weeks updates are a bunch of "end of the farming season" things... Turkey processing is complete! It always goes very slow but we had all of them sold. We were very suprised by how small these heritage birds were this year. We also took our first batch of pigs to the processor and have the second bacth scheduled for next week. In taking the pigs we have chosen our new gilt as well!
This weeks Veggie patch segment is sponsored by farmtek.com - listen to the coopcast for the coupon code to sahev $25 on orders of $75 or more.
We talk about what we are harvesting in the gardens right now and from the green house. The cold and wet spring that stunted the plants seems to have been a blessing for our late season harvest. Tomatoes, zuchinni, and winter squash top the gardn and greenhouse lists. Andy laments about how gross eggplant is and discusses a new use for them (hint - pistols are involved). We also tak a little about the question we get asked a lot about the CSA or other farm enterprises - "is it worth it?"
