NEXT WEEK: Regular season folks, you are on your own. Extended seasoners: lettuce, greens, hakurei turnips, bok choy, sweet potatoes.
We were just lightly nipped by the frost last week and most plants survived. Then summer came roaring back and sent the crops into a heady growth. The last couple of morning harvests have started with your farmers frowning at the exuberant green growth in the high tunnel. What can hold for the extended season and what needs to be picked now is the trouble. Perhaps this warm weather will have us eating peppers in November.
We began deconstructing the summer crops this past weekend. There is a long way to go to clean up the fields and prepare them for the winter. All are welcome any Wednesday or Saturday mornings to join in the work from now until Thanksgiving.
