Farm Update!

The farm is in full swing as we reach mid-summer. Crops planted at the beginning of the season are coming to fruition. Last week we were able to harvest cucumbers, mustard greens, pole beans, onions and turnips. Some of the beds in the field have been re-tilled and seeded for a second crop. We had a good amount of rain so plants are – for the most part – well watered. Soil conditions are not optimal but better than last year and able to yield produce. The youth team has been enthusiastically engaged with learning and helping with farm work. Say hi and give them a pat on the back when you come to pick up your veggies. What you should incorporate into your meals this week: basil!
