I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but it has been hot! We are excited to get through this heatwave and into some cooler weather. We have been working early mornings and late evenings to deal with the heat of the day. We have also kept our irrigation going almost nonstop. We’ve been doing a lot of transplanting, and will have more great crops going into fall. All the produce is still looking good and we have another great bag for you this week. We included a large butternut squash this week. This squash is very versatile and can be used in both savory and sweet applications. Have a great week and thank you for supporting our farm!
