In the Share - Week 2
TAT SOI OR SWISS CHARD
IN TWO WEEKS: lettuce, greens, strawberries and herbs.
Last week was our first off-week of our alternating week CSA distribution. While not a typical sabbatical, getting a week's break from the harvest/delivery schedule opened up our days for other projects. With our extra time we managed to complete some repair to the outside of the farm house and get all of the cabbages mulched before the rains came.
We are lucky that only 2.5 inches of rain fell the last few days. We know other farmers with flooded fields just a few hours south of us. The Spring plantings are all in and growing nicely. We hope with a little warm and dry weather we should be able to start planting the summer crops of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers by later this week.
