Farm update – 11/4/2018

November already! This has been an off-kilter fall for sure. Between the warmth of September (much above average mean temperatures, and record warmest minimum temperatures) and losing October to hurricane Michael, nothing on the farm has gone exactly as planned. As I look at pictures from previous years' fall harvests, I can't help but notice… Continue reading Farm update – 11/4/2018

Now that we're two weeks into our fall vegetable season, the weather is finally about to catch on that it's time to turn cooler. The cool down looks to be courtesy of Tropical Storm (likely to become Hurricane) Michael. The 10-day forecast has Michael coming through on Wednesday followed by multiple days with highs in… Continue reading Farm update – 10/7/2018
