Lineage Farm News (and about the eggs)

Dear Members,
Fall is truly and finally here! The maple tree at the foot of the hill is heavy with golden orange leaves, the mountain range across the valley is blooming with color, and the pepper plants just barely missed a good frost Monday night. Our handful of dahlias are toast, and I am very glad to have all of our winter squash out of the field and safely stored.
Bad news for all you egg fans – we were just notified that last Thursday's eggs are the last that Dogwood Farm can provide this season, as her hens' production dropped precipitously and unexpectedly. I have made calls to other egg farmers in the area, and no one has any to spare. Everything has its season, even eggs. I can figure out refunds, or egg share members could also choose to donate the remainder to next season's Good Food for Hudson program.
It was a joy harvesting this latest batch of carrots this morning, our first weed free patch of the year. Many thanks to everyone who made that possible! And many thanks too to Brooklyn member Kara, who joined us through two harvest days a few weeks back, and dove through those weeds to resurface with bunches of beets and carrots.
So I hope you enjoy the butternuts, carrots, beets, onions, sweet peppers, arugula and more that we are bringing you this week, and for the next few weeks coming!
Also, we are looking forward to seeing many of you this weekend! Saturday night may be a bit chilly with a low of 39, but if you like cool weather camping come on up. Sunday night sounds better, only down to 50, if you have the flexibility. And the potluck lunch starts Sunday at 12:30, followed by garlic planting!
Our address is 1630 County Route 7a, Copake NY 12515. Google maps wants to take you around the corner to Empire Road at the last minute but don't let it! There is a big grassy front yard, a garage and two greenhouses, and a sign that reads "Copake Agricultural Center" and that is the driveway to enter.
See you soon!
Your Farmers,
Jen, Jon, and Big Sam
