The rain was a big blessing! One gauge said 2 inches and the other said 3 inches… So I’ll say we had 2 ½ inches! Thank you Lord! The dry soil is now full! Sunday we had a light frost, maybe 31°F,… stopped the sweet potatoes and basil, slowed the tomatoes and peppers. Last night another light frost maybe 30°F… We still should have some tomatoes and peppers for this Saturday, sweet potatoes really dig nice now in the soft wet soil, lots of parsnips, and brussel sprouts, all the pumpkins, watermelon and radishes you want, kale,
chard, lettuce, spinach, and arugula, maybe a few eggplant and red cabbage left. Herbs are done other than Tarragon, and some English thyme. We got 50# of certified organic garlic in from Wisconsin Wednesday (4varities). We will try to plant them tomorrow next to the new broccoli. The rain was perfect for a big
broccoli crop coming soon! Brussels are very frost tolerant. So other than a few root crops and the “brassicas” were about done with outside production. The cold tolerant salad greens in the greenhouse should be fine
till after at least Thanksgiving. We are short of picking help tomorrow (Friday) if anybody wants to come help pick Cherry tomatoes! Next week (Saturday October 26th) we will be closed, thank you to those that
have renewed their shares in your Community Supported Agriculture at the Heikes Family Farm LLC.
See you on Saturday 10-1pm
Sam and Heidi
