2014 Fall Season, week 2

October 11, 2014

This week's harvest:
Sweet Potatoes
Spaghetti Squash
Greens choice (Arugula, Cut Lettuce, Mizuna)
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers

This week's farm news:

We had our first frost of the season this week. So it was farewell to most of the remaining summer crops. Somehow a few tomatoes survived, and the sweet pepper plants mostly just had their top-most leaves touched by the frost. The melons and summer squash were scorched, though!

Otherwise this week it was rain, rain, rain. Typically, October is our driest month of the year... That is certainly not the case this year! We are thankful for the rain even though it makes things challenging for us as we try to wrap up any remaining garden work for the season. So I guess what I'm saying is that we didn't accomplish much in the garden but had a nice week doing other things. We hope you had a nice week, too!
