Notes from Green Thumb Farm: 11/1/2015


Summer is now behind us. We had a killing frost the morning of October 19th. Tomatoes, Peppers, Summer Squashes and Eggplants were all gone that morning. We have managed to pick a few more of each of these from lower down on the plants, which were protected by the plants leaves.  We have finished picking all of these now, so we will be bringing in more of our fall crops; Kales, Pac Chois, Salad greens, Turnips, Radishes, Winter Squashes, Sweet Potatoes, Scallions, Beets and Carrots. We may even bring in some Broccoli, Cauliflowers and cabbages, if we can find enough that deer have not damaged.

Our last deliveries are rapidly approaching and we will be bringing in much produce that can be stored at your home. Sweet Potatoes and Winter Squashes should not be refrigerated, but kept in a dry cool location. I store mine in the basement and have them until August of the following year. So enjoy it all!

Organically Yours,

Farmer Bill
