It looks like a nice sunny fallish day. If there was a killing frost (32F or below) in any official reporting station in Michigan during September we could say that the next two weeks looks to be Injun Summer, at least where it frosted. For nearly all other areas, however, all we can say is that today will be a taste of fall and summer returns tomorrow. That just ain’t as romantic sounding but that’s the way that it is…
While there was some rain last night (a bit less than a half inch, I don’t believe the ripe tomatoes were cracked severely, will know more later today) AND we had picked a large supply of tomatoes yesterday before the rain so we will have a fair supply of canning tomatoes today and a good supply of slicers and cherry tomatoes. The only crops that the rain could have hurt, by the way, were the tomatoes. We do have a good supply of most of our summer vegetables as well as winter squash and pumpkins. (More info on what we have is given after the photos!) While we still have a supply of late summer/ early fall apples like Gala, Zestar, Mollies Delicious, Jonamac, Wealthy and Earliblaze we have started harvesting our Honeycrisp, Snow and Macs(small crop)
