As far as i'm concerned, this will certainly be a winter to remember.
We've held fast through a month with no rain, two record setting cold events and the literal icing on the cake, about a foot of snow. Still, when I catch myself complaining, I look East to the rest of the country and count my blessings.
Sure, two weeks ago the vegetables on the market table froze solid and we lost most of the Overwintering Cauliflower due to cold. Sure, because of heavy snow we narrowly averted a collapsed greenhouse and hungry deer ate a bunch of Leeks. But it could have been much, much worse, right? No one around here ever said farming was boring.....
Our winter crops have held out so much better than expected with the help of various storage rooms and floating row cover to keep the plants from freezing.
At market we still have: Butternut squash, Winter Leeks, Potatoes, Kale, Spinach, Red Mustard, Parsnips, Rutabaga, Yacon, Kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts, Pickles and more!
Soon we'll begin the slow transition to early sown spring veggies, but for now, we're sure enjoying the hearty soups and stews, root roasts and mashes that true NW winters are made of.
Keep watching for the first spring bulbs to flower and come see us at market soon!
