Severe thunderstorms moved over the farm last week dropping over 3+ inches of rain
Welcome to Week 9 everyone! I can't believe it's almost August and we're already talking about fall crops. You should see the pumpkin plants, they're looking awesome.
Mother Nature has been throwing everything at us lately from extreme heat to excessive precipitation, 3 inches plus in some cases. The storms have been pretty severe too with dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning. I think we lucked-out on the last one that came through. Just to the south of us some towns were measuring half inch hail and Warren may have had a funnel cloud from the very same cell that passed right over our farm.
On-top of the weather the crew has been battling weeds, keeping the good fight trellising tomatoes, and staking just about everything. Despite the 90 to 100 degree temps its been getting done and I'm proud of them. It's not easy doing this kind of work.
New to the share this week... fresh garlic, tomatoes, several varieties of eggplant, purple and red savoy cabbage, and a new trio of herbs, enjoy!

WHAT TO USE FIRST
The shelf life of garlic can go as long as a year or as short as a few days depending on how you store it. A properly stored whole bulb of garlic can last up to three to five months in the pantry. Once the bulb is broken, you can expect the quality of your garlic to decrease rather quickly. Individual unpeeled garlic cloves can last for seven to ten days in the pantry.
