In your share this week:
- yellow squash
- sweet yellow Walla Walla onion
- snap peas
- salad mix
This week's harvest list was written up several days beforehand, edited based on a smaller workshare crew, then re-edited for weather, and changed one more time this morning - opting to skip harvesting something outside in the rain for something grown in a greenhouse. If it's one this this farm teaches - be flexible!
I'm seeing a shift in the farm - it's gradual but obvious. Some plants have given us their all for many weeks in a row and are phasing out for the season. Other crops are showing their stuff and making it know they are ready to join in the action. Then there are some items that just aren't growing well at all and I doubt they will ever develop for harvest. So much to think about, ponder and observe walking around the farm these last few days.
It's been a great year for snap peas. Best I remember in the last few years. We are currently picking from the second planting and the vines are still loaded with peas. They are a time consuming crop. You may be interested to know that it took about 12 combined "workshare hours" to pick and package up the peas for the share this week. (Salad mix is probably the most time consuming crop. I'll pay more attention and count up the hours next week.)
"The share smells like soup!" - said by one of the workshares as we were bagging up the produce today.
Have a great week and ENJOY your veggies!
