These soaking rains have really softened the soil, and perked up all of the plants. Now that the ground is saturated we’re doing a lot of direct seeding of carrots, beets, sweet corn, & beans, all of which we’ll be able to start harvesting in late summer. We’re really happy with the tender carrots we’ve been harvesting from our greenhouse. We’ve seeded more into pots with loose soil, which allows them to grow very consistently. This is the last week for strawberries. We’re pleased with our yields over the past few weeks, despite the dry weather in late May/ early June. The wet weather has caused more fruit rot, so we’re down to the last few pickings. We hope you enjoy the share this week, and we’re excited for the summer crops ahead! Thank you for supporting our farm.
