2013 Season, week 12

August 3, 2013

This week's harvest:
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers
Choice between: Patty Pan Squash, Okra, Eggplant, and/or Carrots

This week's farm news:

The season thus far has been remarkably pleasant. Last week after market, we hustled home and Eric hopped right onto the tractor to get some ground ready for a round of fall transplants. We knew rain was coming (again!). We were able to set lettuces, cauliflowers, loads of celery, and leek transplants, as well as direct seeding 3 types of kale, arugula, more carrots, & Roma beans. And then it rained... hooray! Some of these seems have already germinated and the transplants look fabulous. We also started more seeds in soil blocks for later transplanting Chinese cabbage, collards, Pac Choi. Eric also seeded the potato patch to a cow pea cover crop, and it, too, is already germinating. And while the rain was coming down, and gardens too wet for tending, we spent time in the kitchen putting up some of the bounty for winter.
