November Newsletter

November at the Farm

With the shortening daylight and colder temperatures the work on the farm is quickly coming to an end for the season. We have slowly been taking out all of our summer plants and planting cover crops or garlic in all the empty beds. All of our sweet potatoes have been harvested and cured and we are getting towards the end of our root crops and greens. Before the end of the season we hope to have a new perennial bed put in and all the pathways remulched in order to get a jump start on the weeds next spring. We were very excited to finally be able to move into our new shed this past week! The shed will cut down on a significant amount of travel between the office and the farm allowing for a more efficient work day.

The last week of October marked the last week of our Market Stand and CSA for the year. Special thank you to all of our CSA members this year! We are so grateful to have had you all as dedicated customers this year and loved being able to share all of our bounty with our members each week. The CSA is an important part of our business model because it allows for some cash flow at the start of the season and guarantees sales throughout the season. It also gives us a closer relationship with our customers and encourages member to eat seasonally and try new produce. Look out for information for our 2016 CSA season early next spring!
We had several volunteer days this past month that were a huge help in getting us started on all our fall clean up. The volunteer groups helped us paint the shed, pick up trash, make new compost bins, take out tomatoes, and wood chip pathways. We always appreciate extra hands at this time of year to help us finish larger projets and tie up loose ends on all the projects we have started throughout the year. 

The garden club students took a field trip this past week to Milburn Orchard where they got to pick apples and pumpkins, make apple cider, and enjoy delicious fall treats. Despite the rainy weather on Wednesday they all had a great time. The students also got to show off what they have been learning this year during Cecil Elementary School's Annual Harvest Fair. Every student at Cecil got a chance to come to the garden and receive tours from garden club students and sample one of the garden club recipes!

We hope you all will be able to join us at our Second Annual Growing up Green Farm Feast. This year the event will be held on November 18th from 6-9 pm at Peabody Heights Brewery. Event will include a five course meal prepared by local chefs featuring Boone Street Farm Produce, brewery tours and tastings, performances, and silent auction. See Flyer above for more information and where to get tickets!

I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders..

  3. Divine Loan Opportunity Offered By CHESTER BRIAN LOANS That Save My Family From Financial Bondage {}

    Hello Everyone, I am Rosie Rhoma a single mom from Texas USA, I will like to share this great testimony on how i got a loan from Chester Brian Loans, when we were driven out of our home when i couldn't pay my bills anymore, After been scammed by various companies online and denied a loan from my bank and some other credit union i visited. my children were taken by the foster care, i was all alone in the street. Until a day i shamefully walked into an old school mate who introduced me to Daisy Maureen. At first i told her that i am not ready to take any risk of requesting a loan online anymore, but she assured me that i will received my loan from them. On a second thought, due to my homelessness i had to take a trial and applied for the loan, luckily for me i received a loan of $80,000.00 from Chester Brian Loans. Am happy i took the risk and applied for the loan. my kids have been given back to me and now i own a home and a business of my own. All thanks and gratitude goes to CHESTER BRIAN LOAN COMPANY for giving a meaning to life when i had lost all hope.
