Today will be an absolutely spectacular October Day with bright sun, light winds and mild, gentle air. Normally we would consider today being the start of Injun Summer except for one thing. NO KILLING FROST YET! Officially, Injun Summer is a period of summer-like weather following the first hard frost. Right now it looks like Injun Summer will be here starting on Monday October 19. This is another way of saying that next weekend it looks like a killing frost is likely and then it will warm up for a period (who knows how long) after that. While we will still have apples, winter squash, pumpkins, potatoes, sweet onions and fall decorations, our beans, sweet corn, peppers and all our tomatoes, except perhaps for some in our high tunnels (they might also get frosted) will be gone until next summer. For more information on what we will have available, along with the specials we are running the next few days, please scroll down beneath the photos…
