Hello all!

APPLE FESTIVAL. First of all, before I forget... The Adams Morgan Apple Festival will be the final Saturday of this month (the 27th) at the Farmers Market. It includes sampling of many apple varieties and an apple pie contest. One of our CSA members has even been a winner of the contest!

Hope you've all had a good week. This seems to have been the year with a long summer, early winter, and no Fall. I've been telling you they weren't calling for a freeze until Thanksgiving, which was true until last Friday when I guess a cold front developed, and now it's supposed to frost tomorrow night. But as I said before, most of the frost-sensitive crops are all but done anyway (eggplant, okra, tomatillos, tomatoes). This week is the last of our sweet peppers, so get 'em while they're here, or you'll have a long wait for the next ones!

Volunteer thanks!
Thanks much to Milos, our volunteer last Saturday at the truck. You are appreciated and it was fun to have you there!
