In the Share - Week 18
YELLOW ONIONS F/P We are very proud of our onion crop this year. This week we begin to share with you these big beautiful yellow ones, which are also our best keepers.
GREENS F Turnip greens, kale or maybe some rapini (broccoli raab) by Saturday.
SWEET PEPPER F/P
EGGPLANT, SALSA PACK OR GROUND CHERRIES F
TOMATOES F/P Just one or two or some cherry tomatoes
HOT PEPPERS F/P See Tom's post on roasting the Anaheims
HERB CHOICE F Chives, parsley or a dried herb
NEXT WEEK: A few more summer fruits: peppers, tomatoes, eggplant along with potatoes, garlic, bok choy, kohlrabi and lettuce.
The summer harvest is dwindling and the fall crops are just starting to produce. During the transition from one season to the next, the shares will be lighter. Less time harvesting means more time to tend to the crops. Today we tackled the broccoli and cauliflower beds.
On Monday we pulled the chicken coop down the row a pace to some fresh crabgrass. Unfortunately, we are really good at growing crabgrass. Lucky for us the chickens love it and it is fun to see them stripping the stems of those pesky seeds. You can see in the photo that they did a fabulous job of cleaning up their old spot in just three short weeks.
