Fall seems to be moving in quickly! We farmers can’t help but be a little excited for fall as the cooler temperatures make working more comfortable and the bounty really start coming in. While we welcome cooler temps, farming in fall is a little bit like gambling– a longer fall with regular lower night temps will allow our plants to acclimate and prepare for an oncoming frost, whereas a warm fall with a sudden frost will shock plants and damage crops. Luckily, we can start using our thicker row cover again at night to add a few degrees of protection to any of our more tender crops. These days are also a time when the fall and summer collide in the CSA share, which we particularly love!
This week we will have:
Green Cabbage, Chard, Collards, Lettuce, Tropea Onions, Bok Choy, Napa Cabbage, Dill, Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Sweet Peppers, Shishito Peppers, Eggplant, Zucchini, Cucumbers, and Basil!
We also love seeing these hummingbird hawk-moths visiting our verbena flowers!
Third payments are due on September 1st for those of you with a payment plan. Thank you!
If you have any teal berry baskets at home, we will gladly take them back for reuse!
