2014 Season, week 4

May 31, 2014

This week's harvest:
"Bronze Arrowhead" Lettuce
"Bright Lights" Swiss Chard
"Red Russian" Kale
Garlic Scapes
Purple Kohlrabi
"Hakurei" Salad Turnips

This week's farm news:

We had regular rain on the farm this week... Little showers here and there to keep everything growing, growing, growing! Including the weeds. Oh my, the weeds! Eric spent a whole bunch of time on the tractor this week, cultivating the crops and keeping those weeds in check. We did a little more planting this week, setting out more lettuce and parsley, and seeding peanuts and parsnips.

With the warmer days, our trips to refresh ourselves in the creek became more frequent - a big clue that summer is upon us! The seasonal shift will be quite apparent in your baskets next week as well. You'll see the first of the summer squash, basil, and later spring crops - shelling peas, carrots, beets, and so on. Have a great week!
