Farm Update- Week of July 8

Posted 7/9/2019 11:27pm by Jeff Schrimmer.

Here is this week's message from Farmer John:

Hello everyone,

So we received some much needed rain over the weekend. The broccoli and cauliflower are heavy drinkers lol. I also have a lot of seed in the ground waiting to sprout.

We have some wonderful cucumbers for you this week. We continue to have broccoli and the cauliflower is beginning to head up in larger quantities. We will begin a rotation with these two items this week. Some groups will receive cauliflower and other broccoli. We have decided to call arugula an herb this week so your choice will be parsley or arugula.

Last week some groups received fresh yellow onions (Tuesday) and the rest received sweet onions. We will reverse that for this round. The sweet onions don’t keep well- so use them up.

The full share for this week will be: Lettuce, summer squash, peas, cukes, onions, broccoli or cauliflower, escarole and choice of spinach or chard, choice of radishes or salad turnips, kale and choice of arugula or parsley.

Farmer John.
