This week's harvest:
Sweet Red Peppers
Yellow Crookneck Squash
This week's farm news:
The week was fairly hot & dry. We are starting to really need a good soaking rain. We had just a few sprinkles earlier in the week which didn't amount to anything more than a morning dew... And when the temperatures reach the nineties, moisture dissipates quickly!
We harvested our onion crop this week. Several thousand bulbs are now drying on racks in our greenhouse. Yum! Caramelized onions are one of my favorites!
We also dug a few potatoes to see how they look so that will be the big project for next week.
We set out transplants and direct-seeded our winter squash and pumpkins this week as well. So keep your fingers crossed for some rain in Bugtussle!
