Weather Event 09-02-17

The frost that was expected yesterday showed up this morning with a little extra frosty goodness. Low temps since 5:30am have been right at 32F in the fields.

A quick walk-thru found a solid, hard frost/light freeze throughout the field. Crop losses will be tallied over the next 48 hours, which is how long it can take some of the plants to show the damage. Despite mitigation efforts, losses are expected and they may be significant. I should know by the end of the weekend if this will mean a shortening of the farm stand schedule.

Further information on the frost damage, and any schedule changes will be announced in the regular weekly update.
