We’re happy to see the sun today after almost 24 hours of rainfall on Sunday. This front fooled the weathermen (not very hard to do) and surprised us with about 4-6″ of rain over various parts of the farm. Thanks to our tremendous amount of ground work the past few seasons all of our crops are sitting above the waterline this morning. Now that the rain has passed we’re prepping for two or three nights of frost this week. During the next 48hrs we’ll see the tail end of the strongest polar vortex this season. The wave of cold that has dropped feet of snow on the midwest and northeast will now challenge our tender lettuces, kales, peaches and strawberries. We’re rooting for the gulf breeze to keep us above freezing so that we can continue to grow your favorite springtime crops (we’ll also be covering these crops with frost cloth or irrigation water). Thank you all for supporting our farm during times of inclement weather.
