What we have available this November

Ahh the sweet little whisps of snow that get your butt in gear firing up the wood stove and prepping yourself for the winter harvest!  We've had both little kids in the barn with us today while we graded for Saturday's market and all went pretty good.  Warm in the shop so our 19 month old runs around, .... and our 2 week old son sleeps soundly all bundled in his stroller by the wood stove.  Really nice to be able to work with the kids around.
We are still field harvesting a lot of crops.  Fresh from the fields we have Cauliflower, Kale, Celeriac, bunched Carrots, Brussel Sprouts, perhaps some Swiss Chard (not really a priority and it's getting old) and Broccoli!
From storage we have Rainbow Carrots, Juice Carrots (the uglies), Beets, Potatoes, Cabbage and Onions.   



Our Cabbage storage is looking nice. We've got Reds, Winter Greens and the above sassy Savoy's too!
Carrots are just incredible. All that rain really allowed them to germinate wonderfully and grow a great size.  And SWEET! Even the larger ones are not woody, they are packed with awesome flavour and sweetness! We have glorious oranges plus the rainbow types with added 'purple haze'.  
Be on the lookout for 'Cheddar Cauliflowers' during mid November as well as Romanesca's and big whites.  
We'll keep harvesting the Kale in the snow!  
The French Fingerling Potatoes with their golden buttery flesh are amazing roasted or making killer oven fries with coconut oil and sea salt! 
We are headed into winter with a really nice bevy of winter crops for all to enjoy. Come visit us at The Brickworks some Saturday soon!
