We will be having our first on farm event August 28th — A harvest potluck and bonfire! Click here for more information.
What’s Going on at the Farm:
This week we harvested cantaloupe which turned out amazing, they were grown in a hoop house and are extremely sweet and very close to or at peak ripeness. Heirloom tomatoes may or may not make the box again as well as we are having some problems with late blight in a low lying area and need to clean those plants out this week. This week I plowed in the cabbage field, early potato field, and removed the summer squash and zucchini beds. Also noted was the first color change showing up in peppers this week. Still looking at a week or two for green beans, sweet peppers and onions coming soon as well.
