The garden at Grace Valley Farms grew well and prospered this year! We were able to harvest large quantities of cucumbers, zucchini, sweet corn, and green beans earlier in the year. Now that beautiful fall days are here, we are harvesting other garden goodies in great abundance. Even though it frosted on September 7th, we have had many days in the 70s and 80s since then. These warmer days have extended our growing season and the garden continues to mature and produce for us.
The cantaloupe plants produced well over 150 fruit! We were able to sell a number of them to a nearby store specializing in locally produced goods. The store sold out in one day! As well as selling the cantaloupes, we ate many ourselves, and gave lots away. We even shared them with our sheep friends!
Our winter squash patch yielded numerous types of squash. Above are the Heart of Gold squash. They are our favorite as they are sweet and mellow.
