Hutten Family Farm Newsletter for Tuesday Sep 12, 2017

     We have started to pick our fall squash and it is looking good. Most of the summer vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and zucchini are still producing and should continue to do so for another few weeks if the weather behaves. We have another late planting of beans which we will begin picking later this week if I have enough time to get to it. The apple crop is good and we are only a few days away from the start of very intensive picking for the fall and winter. I like this time of year but it is a bit overwhelming sometimes. I sometimes think that it was easier a few years ago but I probably complained back then as well.
     I had the last seed order of the season delivered today. It contained seeds for the winter greens we will plant soon. Things like spinach and arugula and mache and baby kale are directly seeded into unheated greenhouses in the fall. We have already seeded swiss chard plants in the heated greenhouse which we will transplant into unheated greenhouses in a month. Micromix seeding will not start for six or seven weeks because we simply do not have time to do it.
     There are peppers in the CSA boxes this week. The green and purple peppers are sweet. The smaller yellow ones are Hungarian hot wax peppers. Enjoy the peaches this week. We are getting near the end of the peach season.
     Have a good week.
