The final fall crops are going in the ground this week, and we are hustling! These last plantings will get us through the end of the year, plus a bit beyond. We’re also planning some surprise crops in the greenhouses. Fingers crossed!
We are moving next Tuesday’s deliveries and farm pickup to Wednesday, so that we can go south a bit and experience the eclipse. We’ll be back Monday night, but we’ll still need a day to harvest. Please mark your calendars! Weekend pickups will remain the same.
We have several plantings of green beans coming on strong, with the final planting today. This last planting will (hopefully) mature in early October, and it IS a gamble crop. But sometimes we have beautiful weather in October, and if that happens, we’ll have lots of beans!
With all the challenges this season, the late rains, my injury, and then a hot, dry spell, our u-pick garden has suffered. There are some zinnias, cherry tomatoes, and there will be pumpkins. The gladiolas and dahlias are up, but it’s highly unlikely that they’ll grow enough to bloom, but you never know. We’re really glad the wildfire smoke has cleared and we have fresh air, plus a bit of drizzle. Bring on the fall!
