July 24, 2022

As the summer marches on, the drought has kept production in the field a little slow, but in the greenhouse, tomatoes and cucumbers are getting into their full swing of production and we are even seeing a first few ripe peppers.  And regardless of the weather, things keep maturing.  This week we are starting garlic harvest.  One bed is undercut to pre dry slightly before harvest and more will follow over the next few weeks.  Onions are also only a few weeks off, and we are working to get the last of the first panting of cabbage off the field so we can reuse the space for our fall storage crops.  It’s that time of year already where we have to think about filling the cooler for the winter months.  Not yet, but planting the seeds.

CSA this week we have Fresh Garlic, Tomatoes, Carrots, Flat Beans, Onions, Basil,  and Cucumbers.

We’ve had a few sprinkles of rain throughout the week but nothing compared to what we need.  Just enough so that we haven’t had a chance to make our second cut of hay  (we need four dry days in a row) but not enough to really do much good for anything else.  Oh well.  We’ll try to be thankful for what we get.  It makes it easier to keep up with irrigation.  

It sometimes feels like not much happened in the week – a trip to the scrap yard and just regular things keeping the place going and markets happening, but that’s life around here.  Today we have an interview for a local TV segment on small regenerative farms so that should be interesting.  I guess it’s a good time to talk about climate adaptation as we continue to find new ways to survive increasingly unpredictable weather.  

Well that’s all the news that’s fit to print.  

Until next week,

Happy ordering!
