Hello Farm Friends,
We are enjoying a few days without downpours and the cooler air reminds me that Fall is around the corner.
Although we are only halfway through the CSA season, it’s around this time of the year when I begin to acknowledge that, for the most part, if something hasn’t been planted yet, it’s probably too late for this growing season. This reality is bittersweet, as I never get everything planted that I had hoped, but am also glad for the chance to relax a little more and focus on weeding and harvesting.
This is especially the case this Season, with the garden full of beautiful vegetables and equally full of impressive weeds!
Sonora is taking a few days off, so I will have to practice my solo harvesting skills tomorrow, wish me luck. She will be taking over for me at Market this Friday, so please go and visit her there if you can, we could use a busy market after the dismal weather last week.
Today I’m taking the hoe to the smaller weeds that are coming up in our fall crops. In order to do that I have to remove the covers and am happy to report there are some nice looking little radishes and turnips coming along as well as some Broccoli and Cauliflower plants I do hope will head-up before our CSA and Market Season is over. Could this be the year? Fingers crossed.
