After a rather cloudy and wet summer, the leaves are beginning to turn colors on the trees and grapevines around the farm. Summer 2011 was fairly typical, with the farm accumulating just under 750 GDD(50F). We received rain on a regular basis throughout June, July, and August and the plants really responded!
Even with our long summer days, there is only so much that can be done.
I will continue selling produce from the farm into early October. Vegetables are still going strong and it looks like I will have a pumpkin or two to sell, as well.
