Here comes the cold. We frantically harvested tender greens today and will cut more tomorrow for Friday. The winter blanket of Canadian air behind the windstorm is going to snap us all back on track with the fact it is mid October. We had our first two killing frosts this weekend with 29 and 30 and the forecast for Thursday night is 28 which usually means 24 for us out on the farm. Our white crop covers give us about 5 degrees so hearty stuff under cover like chard will be fine. Cabbage and beets outside the cover will also fair well as they can handle down to about 20 without damage. Lettuce on the other hand...not a Maine native.
See you all at the farm for our second to last pickup this week.
