CSA Week 16 Sept 23-26
This past Saturday night (during the last few hours of the summer season), we got a frost. Our sweet potatoes, zucchini, and cucumbers got nipped. Fortunately, our sweet potatoes were mulched nicely by all the weeds growing around and above them. Unfortunately, our zucchini was pretty much killed. They were beautiful; we had just started picking them, and we expected to have a bountiful early fall zucchini harvest. The only good thing about this is that we don't have to pick them anymore.
This week's share will consist of most, if not all of the following, as maybe a surprise or two. Beets, cabbage, dill, arugula, onions, lettuce, chard, tomatoes, and Sweet Potatoes!

how sad to lose the zucchini and cukes-- farmers have to take it all in stride I guess. Hope the early frost does not mean a long hard winter--thought that was what we had last year!
