2014 Season, week 2

May 17, 2014

This week's harvest:
"Deer Tongue" Lettuce
"Green" Garlic
Walla Walla Green Onions
Spinach (and Swiss Chard for medium shares)
"French Breakfast" Radishes

This week's farm news:

We had several rainy days on the farm this week. The rain totaled about 4 inches and after all the rain the cooler temperatures made all of us on the farm feel chilly! The locals call this "Blackberry Winter" - the spring-time cold snap that coincides with the blooming of the blackberry blossoms. It felt a bit like winter, too, as I wore a wool hat all day during our harvest!

We have had almost 80 lambs born so far this spring and by the looks of some of the ewes - wider than they are tall - we should still have more lambs on the way! It's a sight to see!
