Early Summer – 5th week

cucumber!

Oliver found a cucumber!

Good Morning, Everyone!  Hello from the Farm!

We’re looking forward to the July 4 holiday as I’m sure you all are.  This week will be a busy one!

First, please remember that we will NOT be at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday, July 4, as our entire family is gathering for the holiday. So pick ups this week will be at the farm Tues and Thursday.  Those who normally pick up at the Market please make other arrangements with us. Thank you!  And watch for little minchkins when you drive up to the farm!

The rains are causing a lot of problems throughout our area; every garden bed is soggy and the excessive water is affecting the plants.  So our harvest schedule is a bit unusual this year.  Thank you for bearing with us!

This week, we have lettuce and arugula, kale, and chard on the greens menu.  From the herb garden, you will get fresh baby dill and flat-leaf Italian parsley.  Also in your basket, cabbage, cucumber and fresh garlic!   My grandchildren have requested that we make fudge instead of cheese from the goat’s milk this week, so we’ll have fudge in your baskets too (providing there’s some left!)

We are about a week or so away from beets, snow peas and carrots – if we get some sunshine!

Keeping our fingers crossed,  Jane and Charlie
