Fall-ing into Autumnal Gardening at Better Farm

Raspberries growing like crazy in our raspberry patch.
Sure, we've got a couple of weeks before autumn is truly upon us. But at Better Farm, the gardens have sent a clear message that summer's a thing of the past. Instead of being overloaded with summer squash and cucumbers, the crop boom has changed to Brussels sprouts, raspberries, soy and lima beans, and our second round of lettuce. Here's a photographic tour of what's happening out here:

Stop in at our farm stand to get in on some of this organic freshness! And as always, we've got a ton of tomatoes and string beans. Anything we're out of, there's more in the garden so don't be shy!
