YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Forkful: August - Week 13
Who's ready for pumpkins!
Are you guys enjoying this amazing weather or what?
It's certainly makes field work more pleasurable, but on the down-side plant growth has slowed a bit. The tomatoes on the other hand aren’t slowing down for anything, we’re harvesting like crazy. Personally, I think I've eaten more German Stripe Heirloom Tomato Sandwiches than anyone on the planet. So good and I feel like I have to get my fill because we're on a slippery slope to fall and winter will be here soon!
We're so excited after scouting the fields because the winter squash and pumpkins are starting to color and reach maturity. Did you know it's been almost 2 years since we had a good fall crop? Keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned, it's shaping up to be great.
Our first and second settings of spinach are coming along nicely and with a little bit of luck we’ll be offering 4 varieties, Millennial, Spoonbill, Tasman and Hammerhead. We’re also pumped to be planting overwintering onions in the high tunnel next week, Bridger (yellow), Red Rocket (red) and Desert Sunrise reds. It's something new we're experimenting with and will hopefully add to our offerings.
Lastly, we're planning for an amazing autumn experience here at Bardwell Farm! You all have taught us so much and we have listened to your comments and ideas. We have so much in store, stay tuned!
See your smiling faces soon :)
