Most beautiful October!

October 18, 2011

I know all of you winemakers have been nail-biting all season. But it’s been a GORGEOUS fall, and this week of great sunny weather is raising everyone’s spirits!

The fall veggies are loving the unexpected sunshine, too, and the cold mornings are helping the kales and other brassicas load sugars up into their leaves…. making them sweeter and more delicious. It’s the perfect storm for a successful fall harvest.

And I can’t tell you what it is just yet because it will spoil the surprise. But you have a VERY special treat coming to you in your boxes tomorrow (and Saturday!). I’ll start posting some recipes tomorrow.

Enjoy this amazing weather! I’m off to plant garlic, shallots and onions for next year…. dismantle the bean and tomato trellises, till, mulch and cover crop and put the beds to bed! SO much nicer than doing this in the rain.
