2012 Season, week 18

September 1, 2012

This week's harvest:
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers
Sweet Potato Greens
Patty Pan Squash
A Few Tomatoes
Okra - small shares this week

This week's farm news:

It was a busy week again! Eric spent many hours on the tractor harrowing and rolling. He planted about 3/4 acre of cover crops, which included many food crops, too... kale, turnips, daikons, mustard, cilantro, kohlrabi, along with crimson clover, rye, vetch, and oats.

Then on Thursday Cher, Eric, and our friend Lindsay set out nearly 2,000 transplants: collards, lettuce, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, Swiss chard, and kohlrabi.

We're definitely feeling a sense of accomplishment having the gardens planted for fall and winter. Just in time before this next round of predicted rain (hopefully!) sets in!

We also spread compost for our 2013 garlic patch. Eric got it tilled in so now we'll be ready to plant that crop soon, too. With such a bustling and productive week, we're feeling pretty good about the fall share! We hope you'll join us! It's looking promising!
