Thursday, October 22, 2015: Summer-like weather with summer veggies like beans, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant! Plus apples galore and more!

Beautiful Injun Summer weather today and tomorrow continues!  The forecast is for Saturday to be fairly warm but with showers.  I looked at the weather maps and it looks to me like while it will be warm on Saturday, the chance for rain seems less than forecast, although it is likely there will be at least a brief shower sometime Friday night or Saturday morning.  Sunday looks to be partly sunny and relatively mild.

Beautiful Red Gold apples with golden, crisp, honey-sweet flesh.

Tuesday, October 20, 2015: Indian Summer Rolls On! Splendor, Honeycrisp, Roman Beauty, Northern Spy and many, many more apples! Plus we still have green beans and tomatoes!

Injun Summer continues and while it will weaken a bit in a few days it looks to be a rather long and pleasant one.  Leaves are now turning rapidly and are quite startlingly beautiful in many places–especially the maples.  Leaf raking should start before Halloween in many areas.   I remember from my time living in Chicago one of the high points of getting the home delivery of the Chicago Tribune’s Sunday paper was the color drawing of Injun Summer which, if my memory is correct, was printed on the front page of the color comic section of the Sunday paper right around October 1.  The first issue which had this classic Injun Summer art and prose was in 1907, before not only my time but my mother’s as well!  For more on Injun Summer scroll down near the end of this blog.

Monday, October 19, 2015: Indian Summer Starts Today! Plus fall deliciousness including 30+ varieties of apples, 6 varieties of winter squash, and sugar-sweet pie pumpkins!

As the headline of this blog post indicates, today is the official start of Injun Summer (at least the first Injun Summer, sometimes there are two or even three Injun Summers in the Fall)  The reason that this pleasant stretch of mild, fall weather received its name was that the Native Americans told the first white men that settled in North America about this period of weather that almost always came after the first killing frost.

Saturday, October 17, 2015: Latest News! Frost at Magicland Farms this morning! Rainbow over Magicland Farms yesterday and Indian Summer starts on Monday!

It frosted this morning at Magicland Farms but not near Pickerel or Kimball Lakes!  By the way, the SunSugar cherry tomatoes in both our high tunnels escaped this frost. In tomorrow’s newsletter I will provide the very latest forecast by the official US Climate Prediction Center for November and also the upcoming  winter (December, January and February).  The latest forecast for the remainder of October is for warmer than normal with normal rainfall. Perhaps in next week’s newsletter I will provide my own personal view of the upcoming winter, which may or may not be identical to the CPC’s forecast.

Friday, October 16, 2015: Over 30 varieties of freshly picked apples now available!!

Today and tomorrow will be cool although there will be some sun and most likely some showers as well.  While there is no guarantee it does look highly likely we will have our first frost of this fall this weekend.  Actually, we are assuming it will freeze tonight and tomorrow night.  As I mentioned earlier Injun Summer looks like it will start Sunday afternoon and last much of next week and perhaps even longer. Keep in mind that during genuine Injun Summer we have little, if any, summer vegetables available!  However, we have a real nice apple crop this year of over 30 varieties of large tasty apples that should suit every taste and use.

Thursday, October 15, 2015: Crisp and sweet fresh eating apples plus the very best apples for pies and sauce! Also sunny and pleasant October Weather today!

It looks like it will be a beautiful October Day at Magicland Farms.  However, Friday and Saturday look chilly along with frosty or near frosty mornings before a warm-up and sun returns Sunday afternoon and Injun Summer will start most likely on Monday. Snow is possible this weekend across parts of Pennsylvania, upstate New York and New England.  However there too, it should warm-up nicely next week. Keep in mind that we grow over 100 varieties of apples and right now we have available over 30 varieties at our stand with several late varieties we will be starting to harvest the next two weeks.

Wednesday, October 14, 2015: Northern Spy, Idared, Honeycrisp, and many more apples! Also beans, tomatoes, peppers, winter squash, potatoes, etc. etc

Today looks nice.  Sun, light winds and comfortable temperatures awaits us.  Keep in mind a freeze is likely Friday and/or Saturday nights.  Sunday should be fairly nice in the afternoon and Injun Summer will slowly set in on Monday.  How long Injun Summer lasts this year is exactly ?? days. The freeze this weekend (if it happens, which looks likely) will put an end to our freshly picked beans and while it is possible some of our tomatoes and peppers will escape it, it will cause heavy losses.

Tuesday, October 13, 2015: Pumpkins, winter squash and apples! Plus summer veggies like tomatoes, peppers and green beans!

After a beautiful Columbus Day weekend this week will be cooler and cloudier.  While tomorrow and Thursday will be nice, Saturday looks chilly although Sunday looks fairly good after a frosty morning.  Next week more mild air will return and I have now issued an Injun Summer Watch for next week!!

This looks to be the last week for beans this year because of the likelihood of a weekend frost.  Most likely the frost will also affect the tomatoes and peppers although I can’t guarantee we won’t have some of these summer vegetable still for sale next week.  I wouldn’t count on it though!   For more information on our specials and other produce we are selling see the section beneath the photo of our Jonalicious apples which happen to be one of my favorite eating apples although like ususal, the crop of these tasty treats is quite limited.

Monday, October 12, 2015: Huge variety of apples to choose from! Plus many pumpkins and beautiful fall decorations!

Today we should see some sun although the satellite shows some clouds moving this way.  It will be mild and quite pleasant Columbus Day..  It sure looks like that there is a good chance of a frost coming by this weekend which will likely finish our beans and perhaps even our tomatoes and peppers.  Right now our last bean patch is producing quite well with tender and tasty beans.  By next Monday it looks like it will be wiped out by frost since beans are about the most tender to frost crops we grow.  We were blessed this year with quite a good yield of tender and tasty beans.
