Farm news, August 25

We’ll have the following veggies this week:

lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, dill, cilantro, parsley, basil, arugula, peppers, eggplant, onions, carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, beets, kohlrabi, melon, corn, tomatoes and celery.

On the farm this week:

It did that thing this week where it starts raining and then keeps raining for 4 days straight.  Jonathan doesn’t like being wet for 4 days.  Jonathan doesn’t like wearing a toque in August either.  We started harvesting the storage onions last week and I was hoping to cure them on the field, but with all the rain I wasn’t sure it was a good idea to leave them outside (any one out there know?).  So we carried them all inside to dry.  Was it necessary?  We’ll find out soon (because they all didn’t fit inside)IMG_1266

We’ve also got lots of celery this week that, in the words of Rich, is ‘definitely edible’. I’ve always found it hard to grow tender celery, so have not tended to grow very much.  But this week I’m inclined to agree that the celery is edible, so I hope you do too.  If you don’t eat your celery, you can always cut it up and freeze it and use it for soups in the winter.

That’s it for this week.

See you soon,
