Starting to feel a bit like the peak season hu? finally. 

we are expecting highs in the upper 80’s for the rest of the week, which should kick the tomato crop into high gear. We are pulling just a few lbs. of red tomatoes, but not quite enough to go in all the boxes yet.

The fields got some more rain. and we have successfully seeded down some of the ground for next year in a clover/buckwheat/oats mix. we chose that cover crop because it was what we had in the garage. but it looks like a great stand and should add some good organic matter and Spring nitrogen to the soil. Needless to say, in the new ground there is still no shortage of rocks. But seemingly less than the field we are in now. 

Green peppers should be on their way next week as well. and then all the sweet roasting peppers and bannana peppers will follow. We might give you 1 week of hot peppers, we know how much most of you don’t use them.

Things are humming along here on the farm no major break downs, just a flat tire, and plenty of going to bed tired.   the last couple weeks we managed to get our hay up for the winter. Here are some photos of that .

    Thanks for the beautiful yummy vegies! Nice balance to the boxes. A produce stocker from River Valley unofficially said your farm had the best CSA boxes. Cudos!
