So with fall in the air I'll start with the cool weather crops that came out of the garden last week.
|Kohlrabi, Calabrese Broccoli, and Dazzling Blue Kale|
|Camp Joy and Piccolo Dattero Cherry Tomatoes|
|Sweet Gold Cherry Tomatoes|
|Smoked Onion & Chipotle Cherry Tomatoes|
|IPK P 633 Italy|
|Pickled I'itoi Onions|
Zucchini and squash are coming in on a regular basis but cucumbers have slowed to a bare trickle. Much of the zucchini is going into the dehydrator also.
|Pink Plume Celery|
|Tomato Pie with Sweet Onions and Ricotta|
One more report on the Soberanes Fire, and it's better than usual. This is day 74 and 132,092 acres have burned, but containment is up to 94% with full containment projected by October 15. The fire isn't really spreading anymore, most of the growth is in pockets of unburned fuels. No more burnout operations are being conducted. Fire crews are working on hot spots and directly working on the line that has the potential to run towards Tassajara. So we've been enjoying fresh air and blue sky for the past week. The end is in sight, although the fire won't be completely out until we get some significant rain which likely won't happen until November or December. The culprit(s) who started the fire are still at large.
