Farm Update for the Week of June 27th

Hello Everyone, 

So we are still waiting for some rain. There is some in the forecast for tonight and Tuesday but they have been wrong so many times now… I mentioned a rain dance in last week’s episode; my form of rain dance is to head out into the fields on my seeding tractor to do some planting. This has worked often in the past to get the skies to open up but I tried it last week and only managed to squeeze out a few drops! 

We have another beautiful share for you this week with a few new items. The second planting of arugula is ready and it looks great; we also have gorgeous beets and Swiss chard. There is sufficient broccoli for everyone this round and we have a lot more sugarsnap peas coming in as well. We are heavy on lettuce so we are sending 2 heads this week. 

The share for this week will be: Broccoli, summer squash, arugula, beets, choice of kale or Swiss chard, peas (sugarsnaps for sure if you have not yet received them), 2 types of lettuce, scallions and choice of an herb (parsley, summer savory or sweet marjoram) 

Enjoy! 
Farmer John
