Farm Update 10-18-18

I knew I was forgetting something yesterday, and the update was apparently it. Needless to say, this will be a short one due to time constraints.

The weather basically acted liked it did earlier in the year and changed major seasons without real transition. Winter is here, and from the forecasts does not look to be reverting back to fall anytime soon, if at all. The first snow came down Thursday in the early morning, and daytime temps have been in the low 40s. I hope everyone got to enjoy the fall, which apparently took place over Columbus Day weekend.

The temps have done the expected damage. All of the fragile crops are done, and even some of the hardier stuff like Cabbage and Kale has taken some damage. Please note that the What’s Available page will be updated a little later Friday morning after I know for sure what I’ll have.

The ladies are adapting pretty well to the cold, though they don’t like the high winds that have accompanied its arrival. Egg production appears to be holding steady for now, with the split between Lg and XL returning to about even.

Please note that the last day of the full farm stand will be Sunday October 28th. After that I will be changing it to a reduced selection, self-serve stand, which will likely be open for the follow 2 to 3 weeks on the same Friday to Sunday schedule as the current stand. While it will be self-serve, I will still be around should you require assistance

That’s it for now. Hope to see you all at the farm soon. Have a great week.
