The fields are dry again and we have been busy transplanting and planting. Today the last of the beets go in.
The Vegetable Share includes Fennel, Scallions, Lettuce, Carrots, Herbs, Cucumbers and Zucchini. The substitutions are kale, radishes and kohlrabi.
The Fruit Share is a mixed bag this week. Orchard Park, Amherst and the Farm get Blueberries from Abers and Cherries from Singer. They also get Black Raspberries from Abers to partially make up the week that was cancelled. Buffalo gets Cherries and Black Raspberries.
The rains continued this week but the soil did dry-out enough for us to plant Carrots and Beets for the fall harvest. Carrots are on their way and will likely be in the share next week. This week we are mixing up the share.
The Vegetable Share includes herbs(parsley, cilantro, dill, sage, thyme, rosemary and basil), lettuce, zucchini, cucumbers and scallions or japanese turnips. The substitution is radish.
The Fruit Share includes organic blueberries from Abers and cherries from Singer.
We were pounded with rain on Saturday. The crops seem to be loving it.
The Vegetable Share includes Lettuce, Choi or Kohlrabi, Cucumbers, Greens(Tat Soi, Mustard, Vitamin Green, Amara, Mizuna, Dandy and Kale), and Beets or Chard. The substitution is Radish or Dill.
The Fruit Share is Cherries from Singer Farms.
Please note that the Orchard Park distribution is today and not tomorrow the 4th.
I have been posting all wrong. The Weekly Share has been going into the darker reaches of the internet where nobody could find it, Sorry about that.
It has been cold on the farm with lots of rain. The crops are growing well and the slugs are loving life. Do not be surprised if you find one in your vegetables. They are harmless and not a problem when the weather is hot and dry.
The Vegetable share for the week includes Greens(Arugula, Mizuna, Tat Soi, Vitamin Greens, Mustard, Dandy, and Kale), Lettuce and Radishes. Orchard Park and Buffalo will get Cucumbers. Amherst will get Scallions. There will be some Napa earlier in the week or Chard. If mature Napa runs out we will offer Choi or Chard. There is lots of Napa nearing maturity so no worries.
There will not be a Fruit Share this week for Orchard Park, the Farm and Amherst. There might be Cherries for Buffalo. Usually Cherries follow right behind Strawberries but this is not a usual season.
This is the last week of Summer Shares. Next week the Season Extension Shares start. Due to the big harvest we have shares available. They can be purchased through our website.
Tomorrow the news is the first freeze of the season. That is ok. The kale will taste even better and we can start to harvest the roots that like to be frozen before harvest. This afternoon we will harvest the Wednesday share to ensure greens will be available in the share.
Thank you for being shareholders. We would not be farming without your support.
The vegetable share includes Spinach, Greens, Winter Squash, Leeks and Roots. The substitutions are eggplant and hot peppers.
The fruit share includes apples and pears from Singer Farm.
Enjoy and Thanks!
