Battling the Elements
I was reading some of my older posts and noticed that we were very wet this time last year and the insects were an issue. This year has been unseasonably dry. It seems like every storm that approaches the farm either dissipates before its arrival or splits up right overhead. Fortunately we setup drip irrigation for most of the crops, but nothing beats a nice soaking rain.
This week we will adding bell peppers to your share. The variety of bell peppers we grow are called Ace. Like most bell peppers, they turn from green to red as the season progresses. So for the next few weeks, you will be getting green bell peppers along with a hot pepper.
With the peppers, you'll be receiving pickling cucumbers, standard cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, snap peas, green and yellow string beans, cabbage, Swiss chard, kale, carrots, beets, dill, basil and radishes.
I will be available from 3:00 to 6:30. There's a good chance I will be ready to distribute the shares earlier. If that works for you, please text or email me.
