2012 CSA Newsletter – Week 2 ~ Summer is on…

The Farmers Update

This week’s heat makes me want to curl up inside this bucket of peas.
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.

  1. Great looking box this week. I really do miss the bok choi though. My favorite thing from the sample week and last week. The peas, all eaten raw in salad, were a treat.

  2. thanks for the comment. the bok choi was crunchy and delicious. i have a few more in the cooler that may be usable (from the same harvest, but stored really well). we have one more crop of chois coming in, but i’m not sure they will be as good or even harvestable – they don’t like the heat! More peas to come. if you want extra and have the time ask about ‘pick your own’ when you come to the farm.
