Fall on Full Hollow Farm. Don’t let those colors fool you. Just because it’s October and the temps are getting cooler, doesn’t mean that nothing is growing or there aren’t things to be done.
I made my way to Full Hollow in mid-October on a Friday, a.k.a. harvest day for the market. It was rainy and cold but the cool weather crops were still thriving and remnants of successful summer crops were still hanging around.
The hoop house held a delightful surprise. Winter squash! Hurray. It is one of the late season treats I always look forward to. I like to decorate with them, bake them, broil them, mash them, stuff them, and turn them into pies, muffins, and breads. What a versatile bunch!
Oh delicious organic garlic. I dream of you for much of the year.
Still a few stragglers hanging on the tomato vines. Thank you, vines, for producing so many wonderful fruit including the 70 quarts preserved in my fruit cellar.
Harvest time! What a treat to see various treasures coaxed from the ground.
Cabbage!! I plan to share a yummy Cabbage and Italian Sausage Soup farm-to-table recipe later this week. Check the Spark Creative Photography blog in a few days for all the details!
The sun came out just in time to make these “wash the veggie” shots extra amazing.
Brad’s tiny little gourds. Perfect size for gourd earrings!
One final month of Farm Fotos – November edition, will be coming in the next few weeks. Check back to see the farm put to bed for the winter. Cheers Farm Foodies!
