Farm news, June 20

We will have the following veggies this week:

lettuce mix, spinach, radish, turnip, bok choi, pea shoots, broccoli, chard, kale, arugula and mizuna.

On the farm this week:

We’ve got warm weather now and things are starting to grow fast.  We’ve got lots of zucchinis flowering, so it shouldn’t be more than a couple weeks till everyone sick of zucchinnis.

You can see how windy it was today in this picture; lots of things were blowing away.  The amazing thing is that Shengangs very large hat didn’t blow away!  (Shengangs standing about a mile away in this picture if you want to get an idea of how big his hat is).  Now that I think about it, I’ve never seen his hat come off under any circumstance. So, the only conclusion I can draw is that he must have gotten a hat that was too small and now it’s stuck on his head permanently.

I also can’t believe how often it keeps raining.  It was finally starting to dry out last week and we were looking forward to a full day of weeding friday, but as soon as everyone showed up it started raining.  So we kind of scratched our armpits for a while until everyone decided to go home and then as soon as they left it stopped raining and the sun came out.   I guess if I had a sense of humour I’d find that funny.  Hopefully we can work twice as fast this friday and catch up with the weeds!

That’s it for this week.

See you soon,
