YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Winter squash are here!
Monitoring the fall/winter crop at sunset
Autumn feels like it's arriving early this year. The 10 day forecast is saying evening temperatures will be in the 40's and 50's. I wouldn't be surprised if we had an early frost!
The cool trend has definitely slowed crop growth a bit and we're already switching gears. The new spinach settings are really looking good and we're still harvesting lots of tomatoes, peppers and sweet corn. Cultivation is ongoing and some field cleanup is in progress.
As High Tunnel 2 nears completion we are scrambling to finish several other projects before winter, including a greenhouse. The summer has been a blur for me and I really can't believe fall is almost here. So much to do before winter.
We're excited and happy to announce Bardwell Farm Pumpkin Days will be held every weekend from October 5th through November 10th! While shopping for your pumpkins and ornamentals, sample hot apple cider and apple cider donuts, pumpkin bread, pear ginger tea bread and ginger molasses cookies from Woodstar Cafe, new coffees from our partners at Indigo Coffee, new fall jams and jellies from Mother's and so much more!
To kick-off September there is a taste of fall in this week's share, enjoy!
