To my surprise, we have not had a frost yet this year. The morning of October 5th was cold, down to 39 degrees and so far that is the coldest morning yet. Things are going to sleep anyway, nature knows it is time for a winter nap. We have all of our crops harvested with the exception of the winter squash which I will finish this week. Saturday we picked the last of the beans and a small bucket of peppers. We have most of the beds mowed off and ready for the raked leaves, lime, manure and maybe planting some wheat if the weather cooperates some this fall.
I am about half way thru shelling and sorting the beans and most of the corn is shelled. Over the next few weeks, we will be updating the site with some more new items. We are several weeks ahead of last year. Southern Exposure Seed Exchange has received most of their contracted seed for Aunt Mary's Sweet Corn and Cherokee Greasy Beans and we should have their balance shipped to them yet this month.
