UPDATE Sunday - July 12, 2020
It looks like another stormy week ahead so be prepared folks!
Seeding the next setting of carrots!
It's been another crazy week in the field. Tropical storms, wind, thunder, lightning bolts (really close ones I may add), hot-humid, and rainy days. We're taking everything Mother Nature is throwing at us and making German Stripe Heirloom Tomato sandwiches with salt, pepper, and mayo!
We dodged a bullet really with this one. This Field Notes would have been a little different with a 4" rainfall and 30 to 50 mph winds thrown in. Luckily we were able to trellis our field peppers and stake tomatoes just before it hit and everything held up pretty good. As a farmer your crops are always one step away from disaster and there's nothing you can do about it.
With that said things are looking up! Those field peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant are looking amazing. We've also begun trials of of trellising cucumbers and more peppers in the high tunnels to have product earlier, later, and to protect them from the harsh summer conditions. We love it when a plan comes together.
It's 8:30pm, dark, and we are finishing installation of the brush washer by truck headlights... on to the next project :)
Enjoy the share this week folks, we have SWEET CORN!
WHAT TO USE FIRST
TIP: HOW LONG TO BOIL CORN ON THE COB
Fill a large pot with water. Pour 1 quart of water per ear into your largest pot, add Kosher salt, then bring the water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, add the corn. Be sure you do not over crowd the pot. As soon as the water returns to a boil, the corn is done. This should only take 4-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and cover the pot with a lid. The corn can stay in the hot water for up to 30 minutes.
