2013 Season, week 14

August 17, 2013

This week's harvest:
"Sangria" Watermelons
Assorted Tomatoes
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers
"Patty Pan" Summer Squash

This week's farm news:

First off, we want to announce this year's fall share. The fall gardens are taking shape nicely. All of the transplants are looking good. We see lots of butternut squash, just beginning to blush a bit. The sweet potato vines are a rampant carpet of vines which we project will yield abundantly. Pumpkins and other winter squash are setting lots of fruit. We have ample onions and potatoes in storage. And Eric stayed home from market today to broadcast-seed more fall greens and turnips in with our cover crops. He finished the ground work on Friday and wants to sow the seeds before more rain. And with the fall share, we will continue to harvest the summer crops until frost. So if all of this whets your appetite, please join us for this year's fall share! It will last 8 weeks: from Oct. 5 - Nov. 23 (the Saturday before Thanksgiving). The cost will be $175 for a small share and $275 for a medium share. The fall season is typically abundant and is our favorite! Just let us know if you are interested!
