This week was much like last week, but instead of Chinese cabbage I harvested chard. I only took half the chard. I don't think I can eat more in a week anyway. Whatever is munching on it will have one more week before I pick the rest.
At the farmers market I didn't get a lot. I got three pounds of Honey Crisp apples. They will be savored fresh over the course of the next month, though I'm sure I'll sacrifice a bit for some apple cake. And this week I timed it right. I came at 1:05, just after the market opened and waited in line for my last eggs of the season. These three dozen will last a couple of weeks. Maybe this winter I'll start going to Wilson's Farm for eggs. They aren't quite as good as the eggs I've been getting, but still good.
And speaking of Wilson's Farm I went over to stock up on cabbage. I bought three huge heads, each about 6 pounds. Two of the fit in some old apple bags. The other got rapped up in a plastic shopping bag. Sadly they were a bit too big. Last year's cabbage fit along the back of my refrigerator on the bottom shelf. These ones are so big that they don't fit under one of the shelves. Whoops. Right now I have them on different shelves, but they take up way too much space that way. When my kids come home and want apple juice and milk in the fridge I won't be able to fit it all. For Thanksgiving I'll have to take them out and put them in the garage, but hopefully by Christmas they will be pared down a bit.
