On to the notes...
It's Week 10 and believe it or not we are halfway through the farm share. Where is this summer going? In less than 2 short months the pumpkins will be in and we'll be drinking our spiced lattes, and eating apple cider donuts, but I digress. We still have 10 weeks left to savor all of the farmy goodness!
Soil sampling has begun for our fall spinach, overwintering onions, beets, and storage crops. We've also been turning-over our spring fields and planting cover crops of sorghum and sudangrass, buckwheat, oats, and tillage radish, as well as sunflowers. These cover crops help build organic matter and preserve the soil as it rests.
The science behind cover crops is absolutely amazing. I know I have mentioned this before but for the people who have not heard about it yet, the next movie you should see is The Biggest Little Farm. Cover crops played a BIG role in bringing this farm's ecosystem back from the dead. Check out the 10 minute preview below! Awesome movie. Let us know if you like it :)
WHAT TO USE FIRST
Put your container of blueberries in the fridge, keep them from the crisper drawer, the air doesn't circulate too well. Depending on how ripe they were when you bought them, the blueberries will stay good for up to a week when stored this way.
