Be sure to stock up on storage vegetables while the farmers still have the supply.
Frost has hit irrefutably this week, if not a little unpredictably. We scheduled today around allowing the field to thaw and recover for a couple of hours this morning as we had to yesterday. Nothing is lost so
far. We are harvesting crops as fast as possible in order not to lose them.
The carrots have thrived this year! We'll have them loose and in 5 and 10 pound bags, along with 20 pound bags of grade B carrots at a discount.
We'll also be bringing red, golden and Chioggia beets with greens, carrots, rutabagas, purple top turnips, daikon (Japanese giant white radish), green, savoy and red cabbage, broccoli sideshoots, white "snow
apple" turnips, kohlrabi, scallions, yellow and red onions, and radishes.
Greens include collards, mustard greens, red giant mustard, kale (Red Russian, Toscano, curly green and red), mizuna, watercress, rainbow chard, spinach, arugula, greens mix, tat soi, radicchio, and sorrel.
Herbs include basil (Genovese, lemon and anise), Italian and curly parsley, thyme, oregano, lovage, marjoram, savory, chervil and epazote.
We'll also have our apple trees hardy for successful growing in Alaska.
