Over the last week, mornings have been chillier and we’re noticing more color appearing on the trees that border all our fields.
Summer is slipping away more every day. Our last planting of Sweet Corn is yielding its final harvests this week, and we’re sad to see the last of this crop. But on the upside, the sweetest Sweet Corn is always the September harvests–they’ve had the maximum amount of time to develop their sugars. Sweet Corn is one of those crops that always goes out on a high note.
We’re still harvesting Tomatoes, but the clock is ticking there too. It looks like only a few more weeks until our last taste of Tomato season. Cool nights are a little much for this delicate crop from the high plains of Mexico. But before we say goodbye til next season, we’re savoring every last one.
