2014 Season, week 14

August 9, 2014

This week's harvest:
"Halona" Muskmelons
Tomatoes & Cherry Tomatoes
Sweet Red & Yellow Peppers
Hot Peppers

This week's farm news:

Thank heavens, we had some rain this week! Not quite an inch, but we'll take that without complaint! At this point any amount is a blessing. On Thursday, when our chance for rain was the greatest, we got busy planting fall greens. We had been putting it off because conditions were so dry but we figured it was now or never - as it's getting late in the season for planting. We feel pretty good about what we planted: kale, lettuce, arugula, mizuna, turnips, red mustard, etc. It feel super to have some seeds in the ground and to have them get rained on shortly after planting! Once we see how things germinate, we will have a better idea of what we can offer for our fall share, so stay tuned! Also this week Eric planted our entire one-acre spring garden to a cover/forage crop. It was a huge job!
