Crazy Harvest Days!

Well it's definitely that time of year.  That time of year when ever which way I turn I see - "OMG! That needs to be harvested!"  I start feeling like a crazy spinning dervish.  Dust flying from my feet and vegetables going up up up in an endless tornado of harvest! 
We've got all the garlic in, cured and dried (and, btw, seed garlic will be available very very soon!), we've got greens, broccoli and her cousins, beans, onions, beets and carrots galore.  And we've started harvest beautiful tomatoes (OMG!), an absolutely gorgeous and abundant crop of potatoes and the dry beans, oh my, the dry beans, are looking like they are going to be the bumper crop of all bumper crops this year (we've still got another month til harvest for those so keeping my finger's crossed).  All told, it's been a heck of a year.  Here's a few pictures to show you in images how great it's been!  And today at market we've got:
* Kale
* Chard
* Mesclun
* Head Lettuce
* Heirloom tomatoes
* Basil
* Onions
* Garlic
* Broccoli
* Beans - 3 kinds
* Peas
* Beets
* Carrots
* Kohlrabi
* Celery
* Parsley
and more more more!
See you there! Farmer Georgie
