In your share this week:
- Salad Mix
- Japanese Turnips
- Spinach, a small bag for everyone
- Chinese Cabbage
- Pac Choi
- Italian Parsley
Some projects checked off the list this week: transplanted the last of the broccoli and squash; planted the potatoes; finished weeding greenhouse 4; and Shain has planted more carrots, spinach, and other crops.
Some projects we'll be working on this week: transplanting romaine lettuce, tranplanting basil, starting some more basil and dill, repairing greenhouses, mucking out a goat pen, turning under spent plantings of salad and arugula, and hopefully some more weeding.
In todays efforts of harvesting and cleaning the Japanese turnips for this week's share, we learned that bugs have already gotten into them. Nearly 25% of what I pulled today were eaten on or otherwise damaged by a larvae type creature that lives just below the surface of the soil. The best thing to do now is harvest heavy each week, picking everything that is big enough to eat, and sort out the bad turnips for the pigs. Too bad for we love the Japanese turnips.
I posted a farm update last night with several photos. Please scroll down to read.
Have a great week and ENJOY your veggies!
