Wow it’s been a hot one this week. I love the heat as much as our crops – I just need to remember to drink twice as much water as usual! We spent a good part of last week tidying the farms as the weeds attempt to push ahead of our crops. Fortunately our amazing volunteers are helping keep our rows weed free and our veggies growing strong.
Even through we are months away from winter we are starting to get our winter crops in the ground, including head lettuce, brussel sprouts, cabbage and sprouting broccoli. They need to utilize the sun of today to store energy for the veggies they’ll give us this winter. To make room for these crops we are pulling out our garlic haul in the next week or two and let me tell you, it’s the biggest garlic I’ve ever grown. We have fresh garlic at market for a few more weeks and then we’ll have cured garlic until winter. Give one of these massive garlic heads a try, you won’t regret it!
