NOTES FROM GOLDEN EARTHWORM
Happy October! What a beautiful start to the official fall season with warm temperatures and sunny days! Our crops are all growing well and we’ve even had to start irrigating again with no rain in the near forecast.

I’m finalizing plans for our Harvest Fest on October 20th and I’ll share some exciting details with you next week. Until then, enjoy this week’s bountiful harvest! –Maggie

STORAGE TIPS
