The Wilton farm escaped frost on most plantings but the new zucchini looks damaged, so we will have to rely on the zucchini planted in the greenhouse. They will not be posted because there are so few. Vegetables that decrease in production are not listed but there maybe some so just ask. I don’t post eggs either but occasionally the chickens surprise me with good production for geriatric birds. Doesn’t hurt to ask if you no longer see something no longer posted.
I’m taking onions out of sales so I can have a winter supply, but small occasional orders are OK.
The Amherst farm was hit hard with frost, so all squash vines are dead but the acorn and butternut squash itself is OK.
Looks like the next two weeks are seasonally warm but in October the cold nights start again. Very slow growth on field crops in this cooler weather and less light. CSA selections will be reduced fast.
