Wow – the heat of summer hit hard tis year, with day after day of 100 degree plus. Fortunately, the water is plentiful at the moment and I keep the sprinklers running all day long most days, rotating from bed to bed, zone to zone, to keep everything cool and moist. All the heat (and water) means lots of growth on the farm this week. The brassicas – broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and more, seem especially huge this week.
