2014 Season, week 5

June 7, 2014

This week's harvest:
*Shelling* Peas
Garlic Scapes
Swiss Chard
"Sweet Valentine" Lettuce
"Crookneck" Summer Squash
Salad Turnips - free choice

This week's farm news:

Well, another week has flown right on by! We had several more rain showers this week which kept the gardens moist and the crops growing. We did a bit more planting this week, too, seeding our second round of watermelons and muskmelons and re-seeding peanuts where the germination wasn't that great. (Or the voles had a party!) Eric put up a deer fence around our "lower" garden to protect the crops, particularly the sweet potatoes, from those voracious mouths.

We had some sweet friends come for a visit this week. We had not seen them for ten years, which is the last time that they had seen the farm as well. From their point of view, a lot had changed on the farm but a lot of things seemed familiar and unchanged. I'm glad for that. And I'm so thankful they made the trip here!
