Bitter Frost Advisories and Sweet, Sweet Corn

behold the field - Bitter Frost Advisories and Sweet, Sweet Corn

Sorry for the very late newsletter.  It seems that September is the new October when it comes to frost warnings! Needless to say I was busy today harvesting things that might not make it through the night and covering crops that I’m really not ready to say goodbye to just yet. Fingers crossed that none of it was necessary,

That was the bad news, the good news is that the corn is ready and the whole family agrees it is delicious. The peppers, also popular with the wee ones around here, are abundant and a good size this year. I’m hopeful that we can bring the plants through the few cold nights this week so we can have lots of reds and yellows in the weeks to come.

There was also a nice second flush of eggplant so I will send those along this week.

Fall crops are looking beautiful, the daikon is getting huge and the broccoli and cauliflower looks promising. There are a few successions of cabbage coming along nicely including some giant napa cabbage for some of you this week.

There was some dill hiding behind the potatoes we harvested two weeks ago that appreciated the extra light and is now big enough to harvest. More potatoes coming too.

p.s. Toronto, it seems like the earlier pick-up didn’t work for lots of people, so for now I will stick around from noon ’till 7pm. If you need your share packed please let me know on WEDNESDAY evening so I can bring enough boxes/bags.
