This week looks like the October weather that we all know and love: cool and wet.

As always this time of year, I feel a great affinity with squirrels. We all know what is coming and we are racing around to bring in all we can for storage for the colder months. There are lots of “lasts” this time of year: the last transplanting of lettuce, the last planting of cover crops, the last time we’ll use the seeder, etc. We’ve got all our winter squash and potatoes in, now it’s time for the parsnips, carrots, turnips, and winter radishes to all be harvested. 🙂

We had three heavy frosts this weekend and today is the last day of summer. It’s always a bitter sweet moment when seasons change. I love the fall but we know that colder days are coming and there’s lots to do before the snow flies!!

We’re now harvesting our potatoes and sweet potatoes then we’ll move onto parsnips and carrots.
