Well summer is back in Vancouver in case you hadn’t noticed 🙂 The plants are loving it. It seems like every day I arrive to the farm, I find the head lettuce visibly larger, the bok choi a few inches taller and zucchini…..I don’t think I even have to tell you how fast those guys grow!
This week was marked by finishing the planting of our slower maturing winter brassicas. Brussels sprouts, cabbage and sprouting broccoli are all tucked into the soil to start their journey that won’t end, for some, until next spring. It always surprises me when I’m thinking about winter in the middle of summer but as the sun continues to set a bit sooner each day, the crops will gradually grow slower and slower. At least the cool months promise tasty treats like winter spinach and lots of kale!
