A Change In Weather


Chef Antonio preparing Carmen Peppers

The weather has shifted dipping down into the 40’s at night. This change means a slow down for peppers and a finality for tomatoes. We had a great harvest this year so I am not at all disappointed to see them end. We will start to harvest green tomatoes tomorrow before ripping out plants at the end of next week. I know the chefs are sad to see them go which means brainstorming to make the season longer with a later planting next year??


Fall Radish going to Pi Beta Phi

I am ready for fall and it seems as though it is here. Fall growing is a pleasant shift from the hustle and bustle of spring and summer. It also means less pest and disease problems, which is always nice. We are still very much in a drought so that has kept most disease at bay. Even the crows have seemed to move on to other areas, which means less irrigation problems when we do irrigate.


OMG this was so good!

The chefs continue to produce amazing food with the local vegetables they have been receiving. I had the most delicious sandwich last week from Hendrick House. Jon Curtis was serving a grilled pimento cheese with peppadews and Carmen peppers, tomatoes and onions from the farm. It really played to my southern roots! Soooo good!
