Update from the Gardens
Heavy frost has put an end to summer squash, basil, and green bean plants. We were able to cover up our outdoor paste tomatoes to protect them from the frost as they are late to ripen up for our winter sauce stash. The carrots and brussels are getting sweeter and happier the more cold nights we get and it won't be long before we start to fill the root cellar. We dug our sweet potatoes and our small harvest will not allow us to sell any this year. This is mostly due to issues we had early on in the greenhouse when we were starting the plants. We ended up with about 25% of the plants we anticipated we would have. Inside the high tunnels, the baby greens are bursting and the tomatoes and peppers are holding on to the extended season. It looks and feels like autumn in the gardens and we are beginning to prepare them for their winter of rest.
