Long Days, Short Newsletters

shadow of a farmer 1 - Long Days, Short Newsletters

Hello farm friends,

It’s too hot and sticky today for my brain to put together a half decent sentence after spending the morning building new beds and then pushing wheelbarrows full of compost to the far end of the garden!

The ten raindrops that fell, although pleasant, were not quite enough to revive Sonora and I, and I’m sure our plants are feeling the same way. Unless we get a downpour in the next few hours, I will be putting out some sprinklers tonight as tomorrow is looking even hotter. July, bringing the heat, as expected and yet I’m never quite ready for it.

With much of last week spent harvesting, there is plenty to catch up on this week. Thankfully there is no trip into Toronto this week and the kids are in Camp, so I do hope to cross a few things off our very long to-do list despite the heat.

I think it will be early mornings and afternoon siestas for me!

A few of the crops we hoped to harvest this week need a little more time, but I think CSA members will still find a nice variety this week, besides who can be disappointed when there are fresh peas available.

We will harvest a little more for the Stirling Market on Friday so we don’t run out so quickly, but the peas flew off the table last week so do come early if you’re hoping for peas. For those who can’t make it out earIy I will also add the Market pick-up option back to the web store so you can pre-order. I will update the inventory Tuesday evening.

More next week, ’till then I hope you all have the opportunity to jump in a lake!

โ€” Jenny
