Howdy Folks,

Summer has officially ended and with it go the warm weather crops. The tomatoes are definitely over for the season; the peppers should continue producing for a few more weeks. The eggplants are full of small fruit but they are sizing up very slowly. (more…)

Hi Folks,

We received a bit more rain this past week from the storm that passed through on Thursday. It wasn’t much, perhaps a quarter of an inch, nothing like the downpour experienced in the eastern part of the state and NYC.

Hi Folks,

As predicted we received some much needed rain this past week, a total of a little more than an inch, that fell mostly as drizzle and light rain over four days. Such a protracted period of precipitation makes the harvest more challenging, especially for the potatoes, which had to be dug by hand, without the help of the potato digging machine. I’m not complaining though, after such a dry summer we’ll take whatever we can get, and be grateful for it. (more…)
