Last Tuesday the temperature dropped to 32 degrees. Now it is 68 in the shade on our porch and it feels like August outside. It works for bringing in the fall harvest. We have lots of crop for the season extension and winter shares.
For the Vegetable Share we are upping the greens count and combining the herbs with the greens. This will give you more choice. The winter squashes will include Butternut, Acorn, Spaghetti and Delicata. The roots are a choice of carrots, beets, potatoes, kohlrabi and japanese turnips. The share also includes radishes and scallions or leeks. The substitutions are eggplant and hot peppers.
The fruit share includes apples, pears and seedless grapes. The variety is Mars from Erdle Farm. The other fruit is from Singer. I do have bad news. There will be no Quince this season. The crop was lost to insects.
