When Skippy and I visited Waltham Fields, we walked through the CSA fields as well as the community plots and experimental station. These are photos of the CSA fields. Rows and rows of colors and textures. The last crops, enjoying the late fall sun.

Local farms are finishing up their seasons now. Last crops are roots (carrots, potatoes, parsnips) and hardy greens (cabbage, cauliflower, escarole and kale). Lots of collards too – a southern green, often grown in very warm areas because it resists bolting. Similar to cabbage, but a loose head, great big leafy leaves and mild flavor. I’m trying to grow some, but planted too late this year. A challenge for next year.

The heads of lettuce are fantastic at this farm! Beautiful. I enjoy walking through a field and seeing the such an abundance of expertly grown crops. One of two beautiful heads in a home plot, but here rows and rows!

    Evening, thanks for the note on Collards, I know what they are now.
    The fields of veggie pictures are superb. Beautiful lettuce plants almost a bouquet of a plant when picked. Looking at those leaves at the bottom left, we grew "California Mix" late (Rocket, mizuna, beet leaf just some of the mix) am going to try "Provencal Mix" which, apparently, can be overwintered under a cloche – can you tell I am desparate for something green over the next few months!!
    Happy Halloween by the way!
