Out with the old, in with the new. We cleared out the mustard greens from a row in the tunnel and the next day planted cucumbers. It’s about a month later than I was hoping to plant cucumbers, but I’m still learning the ins and out of the tunnel dance. The tomatoes are anxiously awaiting their spot in the tunnel but there is still SO MUCH lettuce in their future home. If you’re not having a salad per meal, it’s time to start before the salad abundance is gone. Yes, including breakfast!
In other exciting news, some of the harvest is moving from the tunnel out into the fields. I companion planted some tatsoi in between and all around the first round of cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage (which look fantastic). So in addition to kale, spinach, chard, salad turnips, and (STILL) unlimited lettuce, tatsoi has been added to the list!
Veggie Ordering and Pickup Procedures: Put your veggie orders in online before 8pm Sunday. The website is a little buggy so if you don’t see a wide variety of items or you see items out of stock, try refreshing your browser. Also confirm on checkout that you have the correct number of each item in your cart. The two pickup windows are working well so far, so we’ll keep it going. Choose your pickup window while checking out online: 1-2pm and 4-6pm Monday on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the beat up tan and red barn at the crest of the hill.
