Winter Sign Ups ready

Posted on by Tim Livingstone

Our winter box sign ups are now ready from the Sign up tab of our website.  

The frost hit early this year and killed our cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, squash vines, ground cherries, and other frost sensitive crops.  Sadly even supposedly hardy crops like peas got hit by the freeze.  We intended to send snap peas again but the frost damaged them to the point they are no longer yummy.  I think the reason they succumed was because the temperature was warm then dropped very suddenly below freezing so the plants had not grown used to the cooler temps.

The good news is that although we won't have as many tomatoes and cukes as normal, our winter storage veggies are looking good and the sweet potato crop looks good too.  The broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage looks like it made it through the cold well.

We also have some great looking fall salad mix coming along as well as fall spinach and radishes.
