This weather has been something. First the sun is out shining and making me take off my jacket and start sweating and then the big gray rain cloud floats over and drenches me with water. By the end of the day I don't know if my clothes are wet from rain or sweat. It reminds me of the story of the Sun and the Wind trying to see which is stronger and can make the old man take off his coat.
Anyway, I have been working hard planting, planting, planting .The Lower Garden if full of lots of wonderful veggies - Celery, Chard, Broccoli Rab, Field Onions, Scallions, Shallots, Leeks, Peas, Carrots, Celeriac, Sweet Peppers, Fry Peppers, Hot Peppers, 5 kinds of Slicing Tomatoes, Paste Tomatoes, and flowers. The Blueberries have berries as well as the Raspberries. Things are looking good!!
There is always a catch however, we are sharing our peas and Beans with a Bunny!!. Yes, this year the Bunny found us. I am trying to catch him/her and give them a new home in the woods.I have sprayed the plants with Liquid Fence (It is an organic egg base deterrent) but that means that the peas and beans are struggling to out grow the giant muncher.
The upper East garden has baby Zucchini Squash starting to grow. The potatoes are planted and up in their cozy potato boxes, and we are preparing the bed for the Sweet Potatoes. Still need to get the Winter Squash in the ground.
The CSA pick up starts Thursday, June 21st. from 4pm to 7pm here at the farm. We are getting excited to see all our extended farm family. I have put together a pick up schedule I will be emailing soon - Hopefully this weekend.
So all you CSA members get your bags ready!
