Our first frosts have come and gone. The more tender crops (tomatoes, husk cherries, tomatillos, peppers, beans and most of the flowers) were damaged by the frost. We were hoping to have some of those veggies for pick your own for another week or so, but there are no guarantees in farming!

We do still have hot peppers to pick this week, so if you haven’t preserved anything yet you should think about making a jar of pickled jalapenos or hot sauce or red pepper flakes with the cayenne peppers still out in the field.
