In the share this week…
New Potatoes – the last of these for 2017, but a lot more of the storage variety to come including fingerlings!
Zucchini – it’s beginning to feel like we hit the jackpot on the zucchini harvest
Cucumbers – Likewise, coming in strong… the weather has been very favorable. Knock On Wood!
Kale or Swiss Chard – We had enough of both last week for everyone, but this week will surely be either/or
Carrots – The looooong row of carrots gets shorter each week, but there are still a few weeks worth out there to pick. Time to plant them again for the Fall this week!
Garlic – You might have won the battle Allium Leaf Miner, but not the war. We will be back in 2018!
White Onions – Not quite sure why these look clean of any Allium Leaf Miner damage. Clearly the bug prefers garlic.
Savoy Cabbage – crinkly and rugged looking, but actually sweet and tender…. like some farmers!
Sweet Peppers – Bell Peppers of two different colors and taste. It might be a light harvest to start out but they look to be coming in strong
My Dad also harvested honey this weekend! We will have limited quantities for sale of 1/2 pound honey bears, 1 lb glass jars, and 2 lb glass jars. This honey will sell quickly! If you are interested in buying any do not wait!! We will have another harvest of honey in the Fall.
We also saw a few of the Sun Gold Cherry Tomatoes ripening up and had to give them a try last night…. if you haven’t had a Sun Gold before, you are in for a real treat. Coming Soon!!
Those are what hands look like after weeding a 400 ft row of sweet potatoes!
