But that was just Race, and Vince still loved him, still won- dered what went wrong to make Race a killer.

She’s getting produce much earlier in the season and much later, too. In 2016, she reported tomatoes and peppers still going strong in the high tunnel in Octo ber. She thought they might even make it to November.
