Autumn Has Arrived

How fitting, this year, that the day our calendars flipped over to Fall, we had temperatures that reached the 90º mark! And although it may not feel like fall as far as the temps, and we still have amazingly delicious corn and plentiful amounts of tomatoes and heirloom tomatoes, it certainly looks like fall at our stand.

Most of the fall decorating stuff is in. Pumpkins of all shapes sizes and colors! Giants, cannonballs, jack-b-littles—orange and white, pump-ke-mons of many colors, gourds, amazing squash varieties—all edible but certainly decorative. Corn stalks are being picked, as are both the standard Indian corn and mini-indian corns.

One more word about the CORN. These cool nights and hot days are the perfect conditions for crisp, sweet corn. The ripening has slowed down so we are able to stay on top of picking at its perfect maturity and it is THE BEST it has been all season. Be sure to stop by and enjoy this Autumn Joy!
