Squash

Our sandy soils of Northern Michigan—and many food crops—suffered mightily this past spring and summer in near-drought conditions. While quenching rains arrived eventually, some fall crops like apples and squash may be harvested a bit later than average. Nevertheless, the fall forecast is fine and markets expect to be full of our favorite cool-weather foods. Just remember to enjoy and stock up early on those tender summer veggies that don’t make it past the first frost. Like basil. Pesto, anyone?
