The heirloom tomatoes in the greenhouse are gorgeous and we’re starting to see the first of the regular red tomatoes coming on as well. Out in the field we need to stake the tomatoes, but fruit is still a long way coming.
It’s been a long week to get through. Honestly it feels more like three. But we got a few things done. We had chicken processing on Monday, and they all got weighed and into the freezer late Monday night. On Tuesday we survived our annual organic inspection, with better records than we have often had in the past. And we finally went and picked up the frozen chicken parts from the last batch. Wednesday and Thursday are both market days so there was all the prep for those and time at the market, and Friday prep for Saturday while of course looking after several hundred chickens and 67 sheep. And with the long weekend, several staff were off for a day, and one for the entire week. It’s been an interesting week.
This week in CSA we have Carrots, Beets, Cherry tomatoes, Garlic Scapes, Lettuce, Onions and Basil.
Well it’s looking like another long week trying to keep up with weeding and watering, and we’re still down a person. Sometimes long weeks mean short updates.
P.s. Send rain.
Until next week,
Nathan and Aleta Klassen
