2013 Season, week 18

September 14, 2013

This week's harvest:
Potatoes - Yukon Gold
Red Russian Kale
Muskmelons - medium shares
Watermelons - small shares
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers
Eggplant and/or Patty Pan Squash

This week's farm news:

It was a very busy week. There was so much to do, especially since the Smith Family will be heading south for the beach following market today! Hooray! We are all very excited and looking forward to a little fun in the sun. Jesse and Hannah will be navigating "Ship Bugtussle" for the next 10 days. Eric and I did our best to leave the farm in a state that won't make all of the extra chores overwhelming for them... So that maybe they can even have some peace and quiet on the farm without our wild family! Jesse and Hannah are pros at this point anyways, and we feel so blessed to have them here and confident all will be fine and dandy when we return home!

So all of this busy-ness in the garden this week came from setting most of the remaining transplants, weeding, harvesting the pumpkins and spaghetti squash, sowing spinach, and just generally getting everything in a state of order before our departure. So Jesse and Hannah will be on their own at market next week, and we'll see you in two weeks!
