THE FESTIVAL DINNER …
A spectacular and majestic night here at Windrose Farm, our hearts are full and truly blessed ❤
We couldn’t have done it without everyone involved!! From Windrose Staff, event planning by FARMstead Ed, the incredibly talented chefs team: Brittany Cassidy, Daniel Mattern, David Wilcox, Tim Veatch, and Roxana Jullapat, wines by Ali Carscaden /15c, and cocktails by YES Cocktail Co., hosted by Bill & Barbara Spencer 🙂
HERBS – BASIL is on the very tail end of the season. Rosemary, bay and sage with the beginning of new oregano and marjoram in very small amounts.
FLOWERS – Oregano, Ornamental Sage, and mint still going!
PEPPERS – We have shishitos in abundance still. Red jalapenos coming on which means, yes, there are some chipotles
TOMATOES – STILL IN THE WIND – Could be just fine!!
GREENS – With the cooler temperatures our greens are growing in at their own pace 🙂 Short on all greens,but some regular arugula is coming in quite nicely.
APPLES – Smokehouse, Melrose, Belle de Boskoop, Johnathan, Jonagold, Mutsu, and Gala, with a few Windrose Gols and Red Gold left.
SMOKIES – 😉 yes!
WINTER SQUASH – Estimating 2 weeks out, but all weather dependent.
