COMING SOON: Peas, Fava Beans, Cilantro, Swiss Chard, Napa Cabbage, Torpedo Onions
We have reached the end of our spring season. There is always an overabundance of something in the spring season and this year it was pea shoots. My apologies if you are sick and tired of them, but they were bountiful and we are all about sharing the bounty.
But summer is early! We have been picking basil, peas are nearly ready to pick, and so much is on the horizon. Next week we start our summer season.
We decided to build another greenhouse—this one will be filled with our tomato plants. The carrots that were in greenhouse 4 are now completely harvested and we can plant the peppers and eggplant in their place. The cucumbers in greenhouse #3 are ready to be trellised, and soon the basil in greenhouse #2 will be spent and we will replace it with melons. I love having greenhouses!
We spent a lot of time working on the u-pick garden yesterday. The cherry tomatoes are blooming, and the beans are ready for their trellis as well. The peas are coming along but will still be a couple of weeks away. The cilantro, dill, and basil are nearly ready to pick, and the flowers will be coming along by the end of June.
We still have some shares of ground beef available—$65 for ten 1-pound packages. And, we have some fryer/broiler chickens available as well. Just let us know if you’re interested. We start butchering next week.
Everything is shaping up for an amazing summer. It feels like July, but it’s only June!
