Fall weather in Florida, like any time of the year here, can be dramatic and unpredictable. One day we’ll be in love with the cool, dry air from the northwest then the next we’ll be sweating in gulf humidity from the southwest. We choose crops that are adapted to the sudden changes between hot, cold, dry, and humid air during the fall. This week we’re hauling in more of our roselle to dehydrate and we’ll picking in the first Murasaki sweet potatoes and turmeric. We’ve got lots of beautiful arugula we’ve kept hidden in the shade of our sugar cane, along side some tasty radishes and mizuna. We’ll be putting thousands of more transplants in the ground, which will be ready around the first of the year (collards, kale, head lettuce, and napa cabbage). Please wish us and our crops success and come see us at the farmers market this week!- Farmer John
