This first blog post of summer, at the tail end of the Week 2, is very late. And I apologize. I will do my best to be more on top of these things in the coming weeks.
We went into this season expecting another hot, dry year. But it’s been far from our expectation. One brief hot spell, followed by cooler and wet weather has made some crops very happy. It’s also made the weeds happy.
I’m happy to report, though, that our Summer season has started off with a bang. We have so many leafy crops. And peas! In fact, the rain and coolness has made a better season for peas than we’ve had in several years.
The U-Pick garden is up and running, and we have loads of Shelling Peas, Sugar Snap Peas, and so many flowers! Make sure you take advantage of this free opportunity while you can! Later on we’ll have green beans and cherry tomatoes as well, and pumpkins, of course in the fall. But for now, take home armloads of flowers. You can pick any time during our CSA pickup windows: Tuesdays after 2:00 and Saturdays after noon.
