Summer Share #17: 9/24+9/27 Here's to Fall!

by Erin and Steve on 09/22/18

Fall starts today and since it was almost 90 degrees yesterday, I will take the high of 61 degrees today. I'm excited for Fall, but that also means the first frost date of the season is on it's way: October 10th is the average. So that means that though the tomatoes have really run the full marathon this year the lower temperatures mean it's the end for them. The remaining Summer crops are the eggplant and peppers, so savor them while they last! This also signals the end of the U-pick fields for the year as they have to get cleaned up and cover cropped to be ready for next year.
Maybe this cooler weather will also remind you to bring your Winter Share payments with you to the farm this week and sign up for the Winter Share. We only have about 10 shares left! We will be opening up the Winter Share membership to the general public after this week, so make sure to reserve one if you've meant to, but haven't already.
So this week's share will include: potatoes, winter squash choice, carrots, beets, kohlrabi, eggplant, sweet peppers, fennel, bok choy, hot peppers, salad radishes, salad greens, tomatoes, lettuce, celery, escarole, and pumpkins!
The fruit share will include: Apples, pears, peaches and plums.
