Hello everybody. Anna here.
We’ve been busy as usual at the farm. We kicked it up a notch when we found out on Friday there might be a frost Sunday night.
Friday evening and the weekend was spent harvesting the rest of our winter squash (just in case it did frost, we didn’t want to lose it), and they look amazing! Earlier this month we harvested a small amount, and it wasn’t much in comparison to our massive second round. Since it didn’t really frost, we might get a tad bit more squash later since we left several armfuls that weren’t at all ready.
There wasn’t a high risk of frost Sunday evening, and we didn’t think it would happen, but before sundown we covered some of the plants that are more susceptible to frost and closed the doors to the hoop house with our onion bounty. Since there was nothing else we could do at that point, we went out and met friends. When we awoke Monday morning and went to the farm, we were happy but not surprised to find no frost damage.
We found a few broccoli and hope they keep on coming so they can make their way into everybody’s shares.
This week your share will include…
Kale or Collard Greens
Cherry Tomatoes, Tomatillos, or Shishito Peppers
Okra, Summer Squash, or Shishito Peppers
Sweet Peppers, Hot Peppers, and/or Eggplant
And maybe more!
