Looks like thunderstorms on Tuesday folks, keep those umbrellas handy!

We're thankful that the temperatures dropped significantly this weekend. Not only were we racing against time to plant, maintain, irrigate, and harvest crops, we were battling personal dehydration and heat exhaustion. Several of our crew were definitely feeling the affects.
With the temperature change of course we received lots and lots of rain, just about 4" total to be exact. We're still bailing out parts of the farm believe it or not. It was a lot of precipitation to fall in a short amount of time. On the plus side the heat and rainfall REALLY moved our crops along, so there were some benefits. One other disadvantage of the heat and rain are WEEDS and lots of them. In farming you are always fighting something and this will be the new battle moving forward.
Enjoy Week 3 and all it has to offer folks!

WHAT TO USE FIRST
DID YOU KNOW...
Garlic, by cutting off the scape you are asking the plant to send all of it’s energy in to increasing the bulb size, rather than in putting energy toward flowers and seed. Since the bulb is what we eat, we pull the scape a month or two before harvest. Plus, scapes are delicious and can be used just like garlic, it's a win-win!
