2012 Season, week 19

September 8, 2012

This week's harvest:
"Patty Pan" Summer Squash
Assorted Sweet Peppers
Assorted Hot Peppers
Greens Choice: Kale, Mizuna, Cut Lettuce
Tomatoes and Basil

This week's farm news:

With several inches of rain falling in several different rain showers this week (some gentle - some heavy!) the farm is definitely wet. All of the cover crops that were sown last week are doing wonderfully. It is such magic to watch the brown soil slowly transform into all shades of green. While not a lot of actual garden work was done this week, we found ourselves quite busy with preparing the farm for our upcoming family vacation. We also had a few lovely visits from dear friends throughout the week, including our 2011 interns, Jesse and Hannah. And it was a very special visit because they were here to look at a few acres of the farm that we have offered to sell them. After leaving Bugtussle last fall, they have been so eager to find their haven and carve out their own little homestead - and have been met with many challenges up to this point. Because they are so dear to us, we decided to offer them a little piece of Bugtussle... It looks like we might have some new neighbors! [For an update, check out Jesse and Hannah's post on Sunday.]
