CSA Update June 22

Last week was quite rainy and we are trying to play catch up with field work along with picking for the shares. On Saturday Abby, Hadley and Mike worked until 7:00pm laying plastic mulch for our squash, pumpkins and watermelons. We finished planting them on Wednesday. We are already seeding many of our fall crops for fall in the hoop house now.

The hot days we have had in June have stressed some of our early crops already, some lettuce and spinach are showing signs of bolting and we are worried that our Pac Choi (or Bok Choy) will too. We were going to put another crop in place of Pac Choi, but decided to put in again this week in case it does bolt soon. You got to work with what nature gives you!
