Farm Journal
Good evening from the farm!
After Monday morning's frost melted, we worked hard to pull in this week's full fall harvest to take today, Election Day, off as a team. In doing this, we hoped that our crew members could do whatever they needed to do to cast their votes safely. Another Prairie Crossing farmer took the day away from the farm to volunteer as a poll observer. We hope you were able to cast your vote, too!
Later this week, we will take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to harvest popcorn (before the squirrels harvest more than we do!), finish clearing supplies and irrigation out of the fields, and conducting our soil tests before winter.
And while we await the soil test (and election!) results, we will focus on providing you with the best of the autumn harvests from our farm and those of our farming friends in Wisconsin and Michigan.
All of our and their vegetables are USDA certified organic and provided to you from small-scale, family farms. We all thank you for supporting our farming families!

Notes from the Farm Kitchen
Many of the fall crops store nicely for months. Cranberries can be kept in a plastic bag and used within several weeks, or into a ziplock bag in your freezer for use at a later date. While spinach should be used within a week or two, root crops (e.g., parsnips, rutabaga, kohlrabi, turnips cut from their greens) can be stored within plastic in your refrigerator for weeks. Potatoes and garlic are best stored within a cool, 50 degree dark space.
