Farm Update as of July 9th

Posted 7/16/2018 7:26pm by Judy Crane.

Hello Folks,

So it’s hot and it’s dry but that’s what it’s like in July!  At least temps have moderated a bit from last week’s brutal onslaught. We did get about a quarter an inch of rain from some passing storms but they mostly went around us. I was hoping for more; what we got was okay for watering some recently planted seeds but not the deep soaking that the roots of the crops need. So we will be moving the sprinklers around.  There’s not much chance of precipitation in the forecast for the next week but that could change.

 

Cucumbers are coming in heavy now and peppers and eggplant are starting up as well.  A few groups may get some of the latter this week. We have finally managed to get everyone some peas and so we are starting in on a new rotation this week. We will probably still not have enough for everyone this week but hopefully by next round. Broccoli is also coming in heavier now.  We also have some more fresh onions with tops for you- red this time.

The share for this week will be:  Swiss chard, lettuce, choice of arugula or tatsoi, summer squash, salad turnips, cucumbers, red onions, either broccoli or green cabbage, possibly peas or peppers and choice of dill or cilantro.  We will also receive kale, kohlrabi and choice of fennel, sage, marjoram or savory. 

Enjoy! 
Farmer John
