NEWS FROM THE FARM

What a relief…. fall temperatures alas for the whole week and sunshine forecasted for entire week. It has been a mixed bag this past week with nice weather but with morning fog which is beautiful but destructive as in the mist lurks fungus spores.

Our new farm property in South New Berlin is in a deep valley and the fog sits in the valley for much of the morning when low temperatures combine with the fungus spores and fog to create the perfect storm. We are harvesting winter squash as well as sweet potatoes. The sweet potato yields this year are a perfect indicator of how hot it has been. Unfortunately, our ginger crop was a complete failure this year. It was ravaged by a disease that we are trying to figure out. We are in the home stretch…summer winding down fast and we hope we have a long stable fall to help recapture some lost sales due to the summer heat. 

Thanks,
Norwich Meadows Farm
