A week of dry(ish) weather + the girls in Ohio visiting the grandparents + a backlog of to do items = one tired farmer! All of a sudden the fields dried up and we’re in the ground with kale, swiss chard and yokatta na. Onions, spinach, and lettuce are on deck, and lots more in the hole. May 9th may be a new record in lateness but I saw the writing on the wall and potted up everything. Fingers crossed they catch up so we have something to sell at the first farmers market! Speaking of something to sell, we have lots more green treats for you. There is more of everything available this week for those of you who just got our endless lettuce last week. The radishes are particularly fetching right now! Help me clear room in the tunnel for the tomatoes by adding another head or two of lettuce to your cart – you won’t regret it. Next week we’ll add spinach and swiss chard to the mix.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms reading this. I like to think farming is challenging, but I know it’s a walk in the fields in comparison to your jobs! And a special happy Mother’s Day to the two mothers in my life
