Is a second Indian Summer on its way? Also, what we will have for sale today, Thursday, October 30, 2014

Before talking again about Injun Summer, I must mention today and tomorrow are the last two days this year we can accept WIC Project Fresh or Senior/Market Fresh coupons!  (Yesterday I goofed and I should have said Halloween is the last day we can accept WIC Project Fresh or Senior/Market Fresh coupons.  Oh well, that wasn’t the first goof I made and won’t be the last goof either!)

While we are getting quite late in the year (Saturday will the first day of November) it looks pretty certain we are heading into a rather lengthy spell of above average temperatures.  The European model seems to indicate that next Saturday (November 8) the high temperature may reach 70F and they also are indicating this spell of mild weather will last surprisingly long!  As I remember November, it seems mild temperatures are easier to come by than the sun so I have my doubts as to how sunny it will be.

What We Have For Sale Today:

Peppers (Sweet bell, Jalapeno, and Super Sweet colored peppers) (We protected our pepper field with sprinklers so we are still picking them!)

Learn how to freeze peppers by watching our YouTube video: http://youtu.be/830qJ538Ejc

Onions (Sweet yellow and red onions)
Potatoes (Red and Yukon Gold)
Winter Squash (Celebration, Heart of Gold, Spaghetti, Buttercup, Butternut)

Sugar Pie Pumpkins And fall decorations including pumpkins of all sizes, colorful gourds, green bottle gourds, corn shucks, Indian Corn and popcorn for decoration. Apples for fresh eating and cooking/baking:Honeycrisp, Empire, Northern Spy, Idared, Crispin/Mutsu, Spartan Mac, Stark Jumbo, Cortland, Red Delicious, Jonagold, Jonathan, RedGold, Macoun, Roman Beauty, Golden Delicious and Hawaii. We also have started to harvest our Splendor apples which are a very sweet, crisp apple.  One reason why I purchased, this rather rare apple, was that I saw it being advertised in fancy gift packs in the Harry and David Catalog.  Well, it was a wise purchase since this apple is of high quality and keeps well, although it isn’t exceptionally easy to grow. We also now have limited quantities of Calville Blanc D’Hiver and our Ashmead Kernel apples.  These apples are known for their extremely high Vitamin C content–Calville’s have more Vitamin C per ounce than oranges or any other citrus fruit!  Ashmead Kernel has a very robust flavor–you really know you are eating something different with tartness, sweetness and flavor in abundance.  Calville has the reputation for being the best apple in existence for pies–a few years ago I received a request from a fancy New York restaurant for about 10 bushels of Calville.  Too bad we didn’t have much of a crop that year so I couldn’t fulfill that order.  This year we do have a fair crop from just a couple trees and is a good year to see if you agree with some that Calville makes the best pies and tarts.  Many like to eat it fresh! Because of its super high Vitamin C content, Calville is being used as a genetic source in breeding programs.  The main problem with Caville is that it is really hard to get a good crop of nice looking Calville’s! Trust me here! Our Red Delicious this year are outstanding–they are good sized, dark red and crisp, juicy and sweet!  If you are a Red Delicious fan you will love these! Keep in mind we have Red Delicious free samples as well as Empire and RedGold, so you can taste them before you buy ‘em. While we have sold RedGold apples in the past, this year they are really outstanding!  Sweet, Juicy and full of flavor. Reminder: We now have RedGold free samples!

What we will have for sale today, Wednesday, October 29, 2014

While Monday could truly be called an Injun’ Summer day, yesterday was a borderline Injun’ Summer day primarily because of the cool breeze.  While the latest forecasts are pushing up the high temperature on Halloween a few degrees from the forecasts earlier in the week, it definitely will be a chilly day.  Next week, however, looks to be a bit warmer than normal but probably not warm enough to be called Indian Summer–at least that’s the way it looks right now! It looks like the real chill on Halloween and Saturday will last as long as Indian Summer did at the beginning of the week!  Remember, Halloween is quite significant if you use WIC Project Fresh or Senior Fresh/Market Fresh coupons–it is the last day we, or any other market, can accept them! Today we will have for sale Freshly dug parsnips

What we will be having for sale today, Monday, October 27, 2014 Note: Last Week For Project/Senior Fresh Coupons

The weather forecast for Halloween is for a temperature in the 40s with possibly a shower in the AM and partly sunny weather in the afternoon along with a bit of wind.  Saturday is forecast to be sunny with light winds and temperatures in the 40s as well.  I believe this forecast will change since the models still don’t have a good handle on the weather pattern because of the remnants of the Hurricane Ana, which brush passed Hawaii, is expected to move into Canada just north of Seattle.  This scenario is extremely rare and models don’t do well on rare weather phenomena.

What we will have for sale today, Friday, October 24, 2014.

The high temperature today depends upon when (and if) the low stratus clouds break up.  The sun is so low in the sky and the days are getting so short, this late in the fall, that clouds the sun can burn off in September has trouble with so late.  It is expected to get up to near 80F in southwest Minnesota and many record high are expected in the plains states.  Even if the sun doesn’t come out in full force today here it still should be a nice, mild fall day.

What will Halloween be like this year?  Well, this is interesting since the computer models for Halloween differ substantially from not only different models (say the GFS and European models) but with different runs using the same model.  There is little confidence in any weather model for Halloween this year.  So who knows?  Perhaps this is because the remnants of a Pacific Hurricane is supposed to hit the Northwest Coast in a few days.  Models have a hard time figuring tropical systems out.

More on Injun’ Summer and what we will have for sale today, October 21, 2014

The sun should come out this afternoon but it will still feel cool because of the wind.  Tomorrow will be startling beautiful with bright sun, nearly calm wind and moderate temperatures in the mid 50 in the afternoon.  Actually, tomorrow afternoon will be the start of a period of weather that is referred to as Indian Summer.  From Wikipedia:

Indian summer is a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes occurs in autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. The US National Weather Service defines this as weather conditions that are sunny and clear with above normal temperatures, occurring late-September to mid-November.[1] It is usually described as occurring after a killing frost.[2]

Weather Ideas for Now Until Halloween. Also, what we have for sale today, Monday, October 20, 2014

Halloween is one week from this coming Friday.  In addition to being a focus for parties and is the only day of the year that Trick-Or-Treating is looked favorably upon, it is also the last day that we can accept Wic Project Fresh Coupons and Senior/Market Fresh Coupons!  What is the weather going to be like on Halloween.  Will it snow?  Not likely since it will likely be too warm.  Will it rain like it seems to do more than any other single day of the year?  No one knows but God and he is keeping that to himself.  However, it will likely be warmer than average, (average is around 53 for a high and 37 for a low).

As I have been saying in my blog posts all last week, it looks like this week will be beautiful and I believe one can categorize it as Injun’ Summer since there will be plenty of sunshine, light winds and mild temperatures.  Since it looks like there will be a surprise northeaster moving up the Atlantic Coast, it might not get quite as warm as I first thought a week ago, however, it will still be beautiful right thru the coming weekend.  I am still calling for relatively mild temperatures the first half of November, but that is a long way off to make a definite forecast.

Right now today looks surprisingly nice with some sun this morning and temperatures in the mid to upper 50s–lots warmer than Saturday!!!
