What's happening at the garden this week

We are harvesting and curing our winter squash. The storage onions are cured and being distributed. We are putting in more cover crops and our production fields are shrinking as we get ready for the end of the season. Our fall crop of broccoli is looking great and so is the cabbage. The slicing heirloom tomato plants are no longer producing much, and the saladette and cherry tomato plants are slowing, too.
