Field Notes: A wild storm with isolated showers, hail and even a tornado (touched down in Davis) hit Yolo County Saturday evening. Some parts of the county were not hit but others including Woodland and Davis were hit out of the blue with strong winds, golf ball size hail and bucket loads of rain. It actually looked like it had snowed on some roads! Some fields are flooded in Woodland. In our region, the Capay Valley, we only received a few sprinkles of rain and some mild winds. Old-timers in the region are forecasting a wet winter. We shall see!

Box Notes: While the evening temperatures are cooling down significantly, it’s still warm enough during the day for the summer crops to continue to ripen and for the winter crops to grow steadily. We’ve had an amazing potato harvest this year, the longest ever, with spring and late summer planted potatoes still coming out of the ground.

Hoes Down Harvest Festival, Saturday October 5, 2019 from 11 am to 11 pm. For ticket and event information visit: http://hoesdown.org/. Ticket sales are limited this year and only available via online, advance purchase.
