This is a short and simple post just to let you know what you received in your share this week. We’ve hit high, busy season on the farm and we’re working about 60 hours per week planting, harvesting, weeding, and getting you your food!
The greenhouse peas are nearly finished and we’ll be waiting for a week or two until the outdoor peas are in full bloom. That experiment has turned out to be AMAZING, as we’ve already been harvesting and sharing sugar snaps with everyone for three weeks! That’s at least a month ahead of outdoor harvesting window. Pretty cool.
We continue to harvest greenhouse carrots planted in February, but other than that all the items your eating now are outside.
Potatoes, beans, the first round of broccoli and cauliflower, summer squash and cucumbers are all planted outside. The tomatoes are blooming. We’re getting ready to put the winter squash transplants outside this week, as well as the second round of broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbages, AND the Brussels sprouts for fall.
Please accept our apologies if we are difficult to communicate with for the next month. There really is very little time to spare as we get all the food planted!
There are two weeks remaining of our Spring Season, and the Summer Season starts in just three weeks. June 17th is the first Tuesday pickup and Seattle delivery. I can’t believe it’s already here! Look for your startup email this week, and if you are signed up and don’t hear from me, please let me know!
