This will be a short newsletter so I can be off to make deliveries and get home again to dig potatoes. A little more than half of the rows were harvested last Saturday before the project was called off due to the ground being too muddy. We are making another attempt at it this evening.
We are just starting to harvest the peppers this week. They are coming on slowly. Usually, the Hugangarina Hot Wax peppers get a little more kick to them as time goes on. The Bell pepper plants are just putting out a few larger pepper and soon there will be enough for everyone at the same time.
Cabbages are done for the year. I was thinking back on this crop today. These cabbage plants were some of the very first transplants put outisde into the greenhouses and here we are getting their last yield this late in the season. Shain has picked us a good variety! They aren't meant to grow any larger than a softball and I like the smaller size. It's a little more manageable for my fridge and for recipes.
Greenhouse #7 was delivered this past week. It's the first time in all our greenhouse deliveries that the shipping company loaded the 2,000+ lb. containers on a truck with a back-end lifting gate. For all the other deliveries, we had to unload the shipment one piece at a time. I can't tell you how happy this made me, and the 4 other men who were here to help.
It's our last farmers market this Saturday, September 24th in Jackson. We have had a great year at the market and wish to thank the Jackson community for supporting us there.
Have a great week and ENJOY your veggies!
