We are finished!
All the vegetable seedlings that were so anxiously waiting (or was that us?) for their new home, have been planted. Conditions became more favourable as the week went on, and we madly planted whenever we could.
And today we finished!
Peppers – both sweet & hot …
… and squash were the last things to go in.
All the moisture in the ground, and now the warmer temperatures of the last few days along with the sunshine have really caused things to grow!
including the tomatoes.
The greens & assorted vegetables are looking lush & green …
… but a closer look reveals that much of the lushness is weeds! Right now we`re struggling to keep ahead of them.
But the onions did get weeded today!
What’s in the box?
lettuce mix, snow peas, stir fry mix
The lettuces are doing great – more in your box today.
- Snow peas are finally ready – bright green, plump & sweet. They taste so good you`ll probably want to eat them in the car on your way home!
- The stir fry mix is a combination of various greens including bok choy, tatsoi, mizuna, mustard & kale. Some are spicy & some are sweet. It can be eaten raw in a salad but try it quickly stir fried too. Yes, it is full of holes – insects also like it. A fellow vendor at market last week had a similar mix also full of holes. He tells his customers the holes are a badge of honour – it means his product is organic. Ours is too!
Our vegetables were not the only things to find a new home this week.
We welcomed Willow & Shadow to our farm.
They are adjusting to their new surroundings quite nicely, and looking forward to meeting everyone at CSA pick up!
