FARM NEWS: Lovely rain. We got 2 inches at the farm, for which we are most grateful. We had been watering all the roots and greens fields in the hot dry weather of late, but this rainfall will give all the crops a nice boost. It will probably be pretty muddy in the Upick tomorrow as well - so be prepared!

We are picking the first of the broccoli this week. Very exciting! We have 2 more plantings after this one, and they should only get better, as broccoli really likes growing in cool weather. Did you know that some greens and roots, like kale and carrots, actually get much sweeter after a frost? There is a silver lining to the coming visits from Jack Frost after all!

Probably a few more weeks yet until frost; the average first frost date in this region is mid-October. This is just an average however, and the frost can come a few weeks before or after this date. With the way this fall has been going, I am betting on extended warmth and a late frost, but you never know.

Hope you are enjoying the harvest! CSA season continues through the first week of November!

Your farmers,

John and Aimee Good
