In the Share: Week 6
CARROTS The first digging of carrots - so tender with tops on.
LETTUCE We have nursed these babies through a heat wave with shade cloth and lots of water. Enjoy the last lettuce until fall.
GARLIC Freshly dug and juicy
CUCUMBERS OR SQUASH It's a hard choice, but we are not growing much of either this sabbatical year.
HERB CHOICE Basil, parsley, summer savory or cutting celery in mixed bunches
IN TWO WEEKS: new potatoes, sweet onions, green peppers, and herbs.
We are loving the beautiful weather the past few days. The rain has softened the soil and the late summer and early fall beds are in good shape for planting.
The summer crop of peppers is looking great. Next door is a bed of flowers (mainly zinnias) which is now open for u-pick for the membership. Pick all you want - they are free and our way of saying thank you for your support! So if you are on the farm to pick up your share or for your work shift, or just happen to be in the neighborhood go ahead and pick yourself a bouquet.
