It certainly seems like fall is approaching in St. Albert as we’ve already seen a few single digit nights and some of our favourite veggies are slowly saying goodbye for another year. Cucumbers and zucchinis are finished producing quality fruit and this will probably be the last week for beans. Although things start to grow a little more slowly this time of year, the season is not done yet and we still have many more goodies up our sleeves. This week, we brought in over 1000 pounds of onions and laid them out in the greenhouse to cure. Our tomatoes are finally coming into peak production and we are seeing more and more peppers turning colour. Our excellent crew has been hard at work getting these vegetables weeded, harvested, cleaned and packed for you and the markets every week. We have a pretty amazing bunch of people on our team this year.

This newsletter was a collaborative effort brought to you by both Daizy and Jonny. I (Daizy) am passing the newsletter writing torch to Jonny, as well as most of the email correspondence, as I will be starting school on Tuesday for practical nursing. I'm on to the next big adventure! Please rest assured that Jonny will continue growing your vegetables for years to come. Have a great long weekend folks and happy cooking!
