Winter is making it self known this week. It’s sunny as I write this but cold!
Snow on Wednesday makes it debatable about attending the Peterborough Famers market. Dealing with the weather and probably low turn out will have to be decided closer to Wednesday.
At the farm, tents will have to come down and a small cooler will be set up for your orders. Greenhouse temperatures were 35 F this morning. In the past greenhouses were heated but fuel oil is too costly, so what grows will grow with the protection that they get from plastic.
Rabbits are into the celery now that the electric fences are down.
Outside temperatures tonight are predicted to be in the mid twenties, so even cold hardy greens may not survive. The greenhouse crops should still be good.
