News from the field:
Kohl crops are fizzling out, we will have kale and collard greens for another couple of weeks or so, but they really don’t like the summer heat.We are scrambling to harvest & store all of the beautiful cabbage we grew this spring, in addition to staying on top of the weeds. The rain gauge here at the farm registered 4.5″ with Thursday’s rainstorms — our crops love it, but the weeds do, too…Onions are getting bigger by the day, (you can see LOTS of pictures of them on our Instagram feed @priapigardens). Okra is just starting to come on, and the French fillet beans and fennel will be right behind. Maybe if we stop staring at all the green tomatoes on our vines they will ripen? Peppers, squash, and zucchini are also taking their sweet time. Lots of lettuce, herbs, and beets available now. We hope you all have a great week, and thank you for your support of our small family farm!
