Fall is here and leaves are turning and dropping upstate. The season has gone by so quickly….

Four of our Egyptians workers are scheduled to leave in next two weeks, a sign of the end of the season. We’re already planning for next year and to have all ready, I need to work on their visas now. The Department of Labor rep we work with will be here tomorrow to start the process.

We have not had our frost yet but the forecast shows a possibility on Sunday and overcast rainy weather for the rest of the week. On the other hand, NJ farm will not have a frost but sun after Thursday, this contrasts the difference that 150 miles makes.

We’re still looking for volunteers for this Sunday, to pick squash at our NJ farm. Email me or contact your CSA coordinator if you are interested.
