Gearing Up For Fall and Winter!

Posted on July 30th, 2022 by Daniel Zimmerli

It might seem crazy to be talking about fall and winter right before another heat wave but our planning and planting for fall and winter has already begun! As you probably expect, our planning for each season starts months ahead of time so that all of your favorite fall and winter vegetables are ready in time.

We've been experimenting with late season growing for the past couple of seasons now and we're really trying to push the limits on how long we can offer fresh produce. For the past couple of seasons we have had fresh lettuce into December and some heads of lettuce that managed to stay nice enough for Lara and I into January!

This season we're growing cabbage, kohlrabi, and broccoli with the intention of having it ready for sale in November, December and maybe even January. Some of those seeds are being planted now. These items will end up in our Winter CSA Share which we're offering for the first time this season. We have a limited number of shares available as we continue to refine our late season growing systems.
