2009 Season, Week Eight

July 11, 2009

This week's harvest:

Sweet corn
"Pablo" Batavian lettuce
"Yellow Crookneck" squash/Zucchini
Green beans
And just a few tomatoes (Many more to come soon!)

This week's farm news:

First off, we want to remind all of you that next Sunday, July 19, will be our annual swimming party/potluck picnic at the farm. You can come anytime but we're aiming to eat around 1:00 PM, then go for an afternoon swim, & then on to a farm tour/chores in the evening. We hope to see you there! For directions to the farm, see our website.

So, big surprise to us, you've got more lettuce in your baskets this week. Somehow (?) the heads that were not harvested last week held beautifully for this week. So enjoy it while we've got it!

On the farm this week the crew harvested half of our storage onion crop. We have them laid out to dry on the tables in our greenhouse.

We've also got a good start on our transplants for the fall garden. We've started cabbage, brussels sprouts, broccoli, lettuce, leeks, more winter squash, etc. It's hard to believe it's time to start fall crops already!
