Fall struck hard and fast last weekend, in the guise of two chilly nights with near-zero (Celsius) temperatures. We worked hard to harvest the last winter squash and to cover our basil. Most other vegetables, be they brassicas (cabbage, broccoli, kohlrabi) or umbellifers (carrots), thrive in cold weather – sweetening as the temperature drops. As for our solanaceas – well, we’ll be serving tomatoes again this week, but you’ll have to eat them fast as they may not keep long on your kitchen counter. All said, though, we can’t complain – our fields are still going like gang-busters, as if a first frost were nothing more than a bump in a country road.
