It's a colorful box this week folks! We're beyond thrilled that the second succession of the spring broccoli has proven to be abundant and it's making another appearance in your boxes this week. We've been grilling the broccoli recently and it's amazing sprinkled with salt and parmesan cheese straight off the hot coals!
This week we've been trying our best to keep up with irrigation and weeding. Both of these tasks are extremely time consuming but we've managed to make a lot of headway. Even though it hasn't been as hot this summer it's been pretty darn dry so moving irrigation lines is a full time job! On that note, due to the cooler weather our tomatoes are developing a little slower than they did last season so it will still be a few weeks before they start appearing in your boxes. Have no fear though--the plants are looking healthy and the tomatoes that we've tasted are delicious! The future is bright!
This week we'll be putting in more fall crops and our first fall sowing of bok choy, tatsoi and spinach is on the schedule. The greenhouse is quickly filling up again with transplants again after a few weeks of looking quite bare!
Anyhow, we hope this week you all get to slow down and enjoy the farm fresh bounty with family and friends. Cheers to the summer harvest!
