THIS IS WHAT WE GROW WHEN IT RAINS AND FREEZES…………….
Mustard greens growing in “vine” boxes on tables in one of our hoop houses. We don’t have room to do a lot, but we are happy with what is happening. Looking to borrow from the best of two worlds. Protection from heavy frost and rain being in a house, but some “tough love” growing in Paso.
WINTER BREAK TIME- We will be at market on the 21st. Then taking off two weeks, 12/28 & 1/4. Plans are to be back after that. We will use some of that time to reapply for our CCOF organic certification and get ready to start peppers and tomatoes !!!
APPLES – Good into New Year with Mutsu and White Pearmain. Small box counts on Bramley, Hudson Golden Gem and Belle de Boskoop. Long on three other varieties – Jonagold, Red Gold and Gala.
WINTER SQUASH – Still good for at least another month on Butternut, Fairy, White Acorn and Spaghetti.
GREENS – growing slower now with the rainy days that will be followed by more frost. So we are working on the houses during our break. And Bill will be planting cover crops!
