It is hard to believe summer is coming to a close. Well for all of you maybe, but we have a lot of work to do before we get going with the fall crops. This tends to be the most difficult time of the year because we are still handling all of the summer crops plus now we start harvesting all winter squashes… acorn, buttercup, butternut, spaghetti, sweet dumpling, delicata and soon pumpkins, gourds, mini pumpkins, Indian corn etc. Our warehouse is bursting at the seams with different products that are shipped throughout the upper Midwest. Sweet corn has been coming off at a rapid pace and will continue through the month of September. Cucumbers and peppers have been yielding phenomenally and the quality has been exceptional. Tomatoes have been a concern, although I believe we have taken care of the problem. There has been an issue called black speck that cosmetically doesn’t look pretty but doesn’t hurt the tomatoes taste… but people buy with their eyes so there has been too much waste than we care to discuss. All in all it beats the hail that we received last year so we feel fortunate.
We are now accepting applications for the 2023 season! We’re looking for a variety of talented employees that are highly motivated, have good people skills, are willing to learn and contribute to the overall success of Pahl’s.
