October finds us deep into harvest season. We are picking all of our principal crops like peppers (bells, jalapenos, poblanos, and chilies) squash, and beans daily. Additionally, we are undergoing ground preparations and seed selections for next year’s garlic and strawberry crops, and we are also looking over field audits in order to make plans and projections for next year’s growing season.

We very much enjoy hearing from you, so please don’t hesitate to keep sending us your crop-related questions by selecting the email link below! – Ian Teresi

The quality of our Pepper crops remains very high as the season starts to wind down. The yields are good, too. The quality of the peppers has been excellent this year because the temperate spring and summer helped the fruit form nice thick walls.

The quality of the squash has been very good this year, though our organic productions have tapered off.

Both our conventional and organic beans have been steady all season. We planted more Organic beans this year than in years past, and they have done very well. Harvest should continue on into November.

Most of the ground is prepped and ready for planting, which will commence in a few weeks and continue on into the end of November.
