SWEET PEPPERS Pretty purple peppers
LETTUCE OR CUCUMBERS We are harvesting the last of the lettuce tomorrow morning. Cucumbers will replace lettuce later in the week.
NEW POTATOES First digging of the potato crop, Red Pontiac. Tender new potatoes should be kept cool and eaten within a week.
WALLA WALLA SWEET ONIONS Thanks to the Saturday CSA crew for bringing in the harvest of 1200 feet of these babies. These are not for storage, but are sweet and mild.
BASIL Can't have fresh tomatoes without it!
IN TWO WEEKS: tomatoes, peppers, carrots, garlic and beets
I have never been happier to see someone in my life than when I picked up Farmer Tom at the airport today. A week of running the farm without him has been challenging for sure. Luckily I had a great team of people that helped keep the farm on schedule. Special thanks to Marlene, Jody, Brendan, Maria and Todd. And man, the CSA crew on Saturday killed it by bringing in all of the Walla Walla onions plus the last 300 feet of garlic.
We are in full on harvest mode right now, with little time for much else. In this heat, no crop lasts for very long once it reaches maturity in the field, so the pressure is on to bring it in, cool it down and get it stored properly.
We are thankful for all of the hay mulch we put down this Spring. The mulched tomatoes and basil are looking pretty darn good.
