Sprout Farm News Letter October 30, 2020 www.sproutfarm.net Open 9-5 daily
This New England weather is living up to its reputation. I was in East Bridgewater this morning picking up some fresh pressed cider when I looked out the door and saw snow mixing with the rain. Last weekend's tee shirt weather is going to give way to winter jackets and costumes that fit loosely over puffy jackets. Tomorrow is Halloween and if you happen to stop by and you have some children in costume we would love to give them a treat. We will still close at 5:00 but that's when the serious Trick or Treating gets under way. We are just about out of pumpkins. The small pumpkins sold out on Wednesday and there's only a handful of medium size carving pumpkins left. Even the black cats are staying warm in the house.
The greenhouse cherry tomatoes are finally here and they are delicious. We have pears and a wide assortment of apples. I saw beets in the cooler along with kale, broccoli, lettuce, pac choi and Swiss chard. I predict that the temperature will continue to fall tonight and that will be the end of the cut flowers bouquets and the green and wax beans. We do hope the weeds die in the frost and give the turnip a little more room to grow. I'm going to Carver tomorrow to pick up more cranberries.
the watch word for this week is quiet. Jay and the girls are working in the greenhouses setting up pots for next spring. It will be here before you know it but I'm looking forward to those really quiet winter months. Time to quilt!
Well, that's all for now. Stop by and see us soon.
Jay and Phyllis Sprout
