Sept 4th is an important milestone in our annual calendar at SFF. It is the earliest frost date on our farm (2016). Our usual first frost hits around the Autumnal Equinox (Sept 20-24). Still there is a strong feeling of vulnerability for having tropical plants like tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and cucurbits in the fields. This year the feeling of vulnerability is even more pronounced since our tomato season started super late due to highly unusual spring weather. Maybe it makes the current flood of tomatoes even sweeter. Inspired by their beauty, we even included stems of Sungolds in our Flower CSA Bouquets today! And yet... we took OUT our first bed of tomatoes today (a row of Sungolds). Ahhh, the eb and flow of the year. #firstfrost#yearroundfarming#notillflowers#flowercsa#intensivemarketgardening#tomatoes - 13 days ago

Our awesome farm crew was transplanting and harvesting today, as we do every week of the year! You can’t stop farming, even on Labor Day, but we all do need breaks. We and our farm crew all support each other: From working a reasonable number of hours each week to mapping our schedules so that usually one person is taking some kind of vacation for a part of each week, ensuring we all get lots of vacation time while the farm work stays steady and constant throughout the year! So even though some of us worked on Labor Day, we still celebrated with a little post-work Screemin’ Mimi’s Ice Cream!
