June 2013 Garden Update0
Howdy folks! It has been quite a week for us. On the family side of things, our first foster child went back to his family yesterday. On the farm side, the weather has finally been warm. A healthy mix of rain, humidity, sun and some natural fertilizer (fish emulsion) have proven to be very beneficial to the gardens. On one hand I’m very pleased with how healthy everything is and how it is progressing along given this season’s circumstances. But on the flip side, I was bummed to have to contact our members today to let them know that we’ll have to skip a week of deliveries since nothing is quite harvestable at this point. (We’ll still provide 20 weeks of produce… just with a one-week break in the middle.)
For now, I wanted to give you a quick photo update on what the garden looks like. I didn’t take pictures of everything, but this will give you a general idea of what we’re growing right now. There are also eggplants, peppers and various squashes (including pumpkins) in the greenhouse.
