A Sign Of The Times

We don't need the calendar to tell us it's October when we have a high tunnel closed up for the chilly autumn nights.
We took the opportunity to go to a Friday night concert in State College (Del McCoury Band and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band) and missed the Farmers' Market last week -- and miss it we did! I missed seeing and visiting with all our customers. We'll be back this week - probably both Friday and Saturday due to the Falling Leaves Festival -- but Friday for sure.
The garden continues to produce and the recent frosts have been spotty here on the farm. The winter squashes and pumpkins on the hill did get frosted and so it's time to bring them in.
I planted carrots late this year to harvest in late October. I also planted some in the high tunnel with hopes of harvesting them all through the winter. The late-planted lettuce and Swiss chard in the high tunnel is looking good too.

I am salivating in hopes of having fresh lettuce this week...please say some will be ready on Thursday? I will be in touch.

We are looking for about a dozen medium sized, orange pumpkins for purchase.
