The colder weather has also had an impact on the vegetables as well. The zucchini plants took a real beating over the weekend with the high winds and I"m pretty sure this will be our last week with any amount. The cucumbers are pretty well done and this will be the last week picking beans. There comes a time when you spend way to much time picking for the amount you actually get so I think we would be better off spending our time on other crops.
This week marked the first harvest of winter squash. I'm a little disappointed in the Delicata variety as there are not as many as I expected. Must make a note of that to plant more for next season. The pie pumpkins look amazing and the spaghetti squash should be ready for harvest next week. It'll be time very soon to harvest the squash and get them into the greenhouse to cure for winter storage. Well, in reality almost all of ours gets taken through the CSA but I still like to cure it properly so our members can store it for awhile.
