2014 Season, week 18

September 6, 2014

This week's harvest:
"Patty Pan" Summer Squash
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers
and a few Melons for those that have still missed out...

This week's farm news:

Can you believe it's September already? I can't! These months are passing so quickly!

On the farm this week we squeezed a little bit more fall planting in, in between rounds of rain. We yanked out the eggplant (which had completely petered out) and re-vamped those beds for Chinese cabbage, kale, and arugula. We also yanked out broom corn and zinnias (which the sheep destroyed!) to plant some carrots and daikon. We are working on preparing the garlic beds for this year's planting that will be in just a few weeks when we return from our trip to the beach. On that note, I hope y'all got the email about next Saturday: We hope to double your shares next week (combining weeks 19 & 20) so that while we are away Jesse and Hannah won't have to do a CSA delivery in addition to everything else they'll be doing for us!
