No, I didn’t jump the gun on Halloween. Boo’s back! Nora aka Nora Lu aka LuLu aka BooBoo aka Boo and Jenni just got back from 2.5 weeks away while Jenni studied (and surely aced) a big test. I’ve enjoyed my Paddy and Daddy time immensely, but it’s good to have the family back together!
On the farm, things couldn’t be much better. The invisible rain shield over Grafton seems to have finally failed, temps are perfect, winds are strong as always up here but not extreme (at least not in the last week, I have a short memoery ha). We’ve been picking some of the biggest greens and roots I have ever seen, and they will only get bigger with the 3″ of gentle, sweet rains this week. As long as we avoid this potential frost they’re warning of tonight (Saturday), we’re golden. I’ve had enough tomatoes to last me till next July, but the MIA peppers and eggplant finally made a comeback once the drought subsided a bit, and they’re now loaded with green peppers that I’ve been patiently waiting to turn. If they make it through tonight, I don’t see another potential frost through the 10 day forecast…which would take us right up to….Halloween!
Veggie Ordering and Pickup Procedures: Put your veggie orders in online before 8pm Sunday. The website is a little buggy so if you don’t see a wide variety of items or you see items out of stock, try refreshing your browser. Also confirm on checkout that you have the correct number of each item in your cart. The two pickup windows are working well so far, so we’ll keep it going. Choose your pickup window while checking out online: 1-2pm and 4-6pm Monday on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the beat up tan and red barn at the crest of the hill.
