Field Notes. We are monitoring greenhouses this time of year. If it is cloudy, they are cool, and when there is sun they warm up quickly. With shorter days and more of an angle to the sun, they need to be closed up earlier. We have had a slight nip of frost, and expect frost in either of two conditions: 1) a cool cloudy day that clears late in the day with no wind or often right around a full moon. The full moon signals the end of some tender crops, but also the cool weather sweetens several crops - squash for example.

Fall greens are so good - the texture, color and flavor are so beautiful and delicious. I have been using all of them in salads as the flavor is mild, but they are also great braised as well.
