Farm News – September 5, 2016
Hi Folks, I hope you had an enjoyable Labor Day weekend. I guess we dodged a bullet with the hurricane moving out to sea — although I confess I was hoping it might spin a little precipitation our way. There isn’t much rain in the forecast ahead, and we have another heat wave arriving later this week. We are in the final push to get seeds in the ground for the fall crops like spinach, arugula, turnips, and radishes. I guess we will have to continue moving the sprinklers around to ensure germination! It is what it is, as they say, and we do what we gotta do.
The share for this week will be: Gold potatoes, peppers (many red), beets, eggplant, lettuce, beans, choice of arugula, broccoli raab or tatsoi, red onions, choice of bok choy or kohlrabi, and tomatoes (many plum types).
Enjoy! Farmer John
