We are still feeling the effects of an inordinate amount of June rain here on the farm. It flattened, tore, washed out, and generally bogged down the plants and the soil. We have been making the most of it, but just want you all to know, we are behind and will be playing catch up for a while. We will also not have some crops that the rain has overwhelmed. Some of these not at all and others will just be delayed. Some things that have been effected are beets, greens, chard, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant. However, many things survived (including all the animals!) and we will be having potatoes, squash, onions and garlic from here on out. Cabbages, broccoli and cucumbers are definitely on their way. And beans and okra are doing well but still a ways out. We will continue to work hard and hope for dry weather in the coming weeks to bring you the best food we can. This week’s offerings include:
small amount of small potatoes
romaine and other head lettuces
a variety of herbs
See you at the market!
