The fall cover crops are now going in. After the crop is harvested we mow, disk, spread seed and lightly disk again. We then follow with a tool that packs down the earth to create a nice flat seedbed. We hope to be finished with the winter squash and potato harvest by the end of next week. The weather has been cooperating and there is no sign of frost for the next ten days.
The vegetable share includes cut lettuce, spinach, spaghetti squash, green beans, herbs and greens. The substitutions are tomatillo, beets, summer squash and hot peppers.
The fruit share is apples and pears this week.
