YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Forkful: July - Week 7
Sunset in the high tunnel 1
Welcome to WEEK 7 everyone! Can you believe we are halfway through July already, where is the time going?
Another week of sunshine in the forecast, but where's the rain? Field conditions are looking dry but we're not too worried yet. We have the ability to irrigate most fields that are under plastic. It is a saving grace for times like these.
We will start full production of pickling cucumbers this week with the new seeded varieties coming soon. As our high tunnel tomatoes begin to pick up as we wait for our field tomatoes to turn and produce. Our Long Day Triple Sweet Corn has started to tassel and we are excited to see growth here as well, we just need a little rain to push things along.
We are down a tractor this week and it's going to get interesting really quick as production ramps up. It'll be a week of extra running around to get things done with what we have...oh well, life on the farm!
