The vegetable share for the week includes greens of arugula, mizuna, tat soi or cabbage, lettuce, green beans, zucchini or summer squash, eggplant or melons or tomatoes, scallions or sweet onions or radish, and green peppers or hot peppers. The substitution is tomatillo, soy beans or carrots.
The fruit share includes peaches, nectarines, plums and prune plums. Wednesday includes organic raspberries. Next week Tuesday and Thursday will get the raspberries.
We finally irrigated crops last week but it rained and the whole exercise was in vain. We do know the system is in good working order. The greens look great and the melons are coming on strong with this warm Summer weather. Tomatoes are still struggling and most of the roma types were lost to blight. We are always hopeful that the big tomato harvest is in a few days time.
