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.
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.
