It seems early that the cooler weather is closing it. Temperatures in the 40’s are not good for ripening tomatoes.
Acorn squash and Butternut squash are ripening in record numbers for this farm. Personal size butternuts are available for $1 each. They weigh about 1/2 pound. Mediums are 1-2 pounds. Larger sizes go up to 3-4 pounds and are still ripening.
