After a long summer and a few weeks of “second spring”, Autumn is here in Northern California. Fall is a curious season here. Just as some trees drop their leaves and show off fiery colors, colder weather flowers thrive and our “winter crops” start to take off and show some fire of their own. There is a whole other burst of color, and it is just coming to life. There is always a touch of spring here, and we are grateful for it.
Our herbs and greens enjoy the milder weather and keep the salads coming. The fennel, Brussels sprouts, artichokes and chard all show promise. The citrus trees will yield fruit before thanksgiving and the colder weather strawberries are having a blast. The apple cider kit is in the mail…more fun on the way.
