Apparently we need hurricanes to get it to rain properly around here. Laura caused enormous amounts of destruction elsewhere, but I’m grateful for the rain today (though it did keep me from quite finishing the harvesting for tomorrow’s market).

Lots of green beans and crowder peas this week. The half-runners are the nicest ones I’ve had so far this year. It looks like they appreciated the slightly cooler temperatures recently.


I’ve been bringing in loads of winter squash this week. The squash didn’t do as well this summer as last year, but it’s amazing how many pounds of squash you can get from even a not-so-great patch. Most of the squash still needs some curing, so you won’t see it at market just yet. There is a variety of butternut squash, though, that doesn’t need curing before using it, and I should have plenty of those tomorrow.—Sydney
