CSA SPRING SHARE WEEK #9 The garlic is in the shed! More news below.
NOTES ON STORING THE HARVEST Please check out our Vegetable & Fruit page on the website to find tips on maximizing the life of your veggies. We envisage that many of the vegetables you are receiving this week will last for two weeks with careful attention to storing upon arrival. Although we do wash all the greens after harvest, we are washing to take the heat out of the plants and wash away some surface dirt, not to prepare them for consumption. We also spray a seaweed/herb brew about every ten days. While this will not harm you, it does have a taste. We do suggest washing your produce prior to eating.
NOTES ON WHAT IS GROWING
The hot night on Sunday caused two lettuce plantings to be ready at the same time. So extra lettuce this week. The heat also makes the weeds grow faster so we are busy trying to keep crops from getting overrun with weeds. The last melon crop and the watermelon crop are in the ground, happy with the heat. There are the beginnings of capsicums on the plants and also tomatoes on the field tomato plants.
