2018: Week 23

Good morning -

We received the first frost last Friday, much earlier than we did last year. Ths affected some of our tender greens, flowers, and herbs. However, our root vegetables and cold weather greens and brassicas are still doing well. We are continuing to cover crop the fields, which can be a bit of a race to get seed in the ground before the true hard frost that makes the soil an inhospitable place for germination.
