In the Share this week:Leeks, Garlic, Tomatoes, Potatoes, Squash, Cantaloupe, Bell Peppers, Yummy Peppers, Eggplant, Basil, and Hot Peppers


The nights are cooling, the turkeys are out on pastures, children are prepping for school to start, and all is feeling a bit fall-like.  This weekend I quickly seeded some of the last of the root vegetables for the season- turnips and radishes as well as the first of the fall salad greens (now that the flea beetle pressure has subsided in the field.) My evening walks these days include checking in on the ripening of the winter squash and some of them are ripe, but the vines are so dense so before traipsing through the field we will let them continue to ripen until the plants give up for the season- it won't be long though!
