In the Share: Week 22
LETTUCE F2/P1 The last of the lettuce, mainly red leaf. We have some in the high tunnel for the extended season, but that's it for the lettuce outdoors.
BONITA SWEET POTATOES F/P See Tom's post on these camotes muy bonitas.
SWEET PEPPERS F More ripe ones thanks to a warm week.
ONIONS OR POTATOES P Last of both for the season.
TOMATOES F Dwindling amounts of these.
GREENS CHOICE P Kale, chard or gailan.
GARLIC F/P Silverskin softneck
BEANS OR BROCCOLI F More roma beans or broccoli.
CILANTRO OR THYME F/P
NEXT WEEK: Leeks, sweet potatoes, eggplant, greens, peppers.
On the same day that our commercial kitchen was approved (See Tom's post for more on that) we were greeted by a rainbow shining in our fields. Happy day!
The chicken coop seems to be located at the end of the rainbow. Perhaps our pot of gold is in the form of golden orange egg yolks from our free-ranging flock.
Another natural beauty visited us at the wash area this week. This praying mantis hung around for several days on the underside of the drain table and here on our water cooler.
