Well, so much for the summer like heat. We have been thrown right into some crisp fall air. With such a diversity of crops on the farm there is always a crop or more that will be happy with the weather at hand. We can thank last weeks heat for this weeks warm season crops but by next week their production will slow down. Many other crops like beets and greens won't mind the cool a bit.
When corn returns to the share next week it will likely remain for the duration of the season. Our friendly neighborhood deer have decided to eat your share of lettuce, so salad greens and kale will have to satisfy your greens needs. We are doing what we can to dissuade them from this habit.
Still plenty of time to sign up for the winter CSA. Our storage crops look great and within a week we will begin seeding greenhouses into winter greens. Local veggies while the snow flies! Sign up on line at heronpondfarm.com or drop me an email and I can you up on this end
