Our Pumpkin Patch opens Saturday the 3rd!
After an amazingly gorgeous week of sunny weather, things are becoming definitely more autumnal this week. There was a nip in the air over the weekend, and showers are moving in. The summer squashes are finally throwing in the towel, now that they’re covered in powdery mildew, and they are reluctant to bloom in the shorter days. Last year we were having frosty nights by mid-September, but the basil barometer lives on in scented glory a little longer.
We’ve had a bumpy start getting into a school routine, after the teachers’ strike, as I’m sure many of you have had as well. I’m back to my other job–driving a school bus, and both kids have soccer now, with practices several nights a week and Saturday games, so I apologize for not being more accessible recently.
Please be aware that there are only four weeks remaining of our summer season, and our winter season starts the first week of November. We have spaces left, so please let us know if you are interested, or if you have questions. The new greens are looking great and we have a bumper crop of potatoes and winter squashes, as well as other tasty winter delights—it would be a shame to miss out on all the delicious-ness of the dark season.
