Farm Happenings for October 16, 2019: Week 3 of 12!

Posted on October 11th, 2019 by Robinette Farms

The first freeze is on its way!

We will have several nights in a row of freezing temperatures on the farm (Friday night through Sunday night) and that means a new season on the farm!

The crew has been busy pulling our sweet potatoes out of the ground and harvesting the last of any eggplant, peppers, and chard that we may want for the next couple of weeks. Most of the other crops that are still in the field will do surprisingly well with temperatures that are hovering around the freezing temperature of 30-35 degrees.

So our broccoli, cauliflower, beets, cabbage, turnips, radishes, parsley, kale..all of those will be quite happy and will get sweeter as they are kissed by frost! We will start to lose many of these crops when we start to see temperatures in the low 20s at night -- hopefully we have a few more weeks before that happens!

We are also excited to report that we will be working with Fox Run Farms out of Brainard this fall and winter to supply us (you) will butternut squash! We will also be buying in Asian Pears from them for purchase as an extra item in the coming weeks.

Happy Eating!
Farmer Chloe
