Season of Summer
Our sweet indigo friends have arrived just in time for the Fourth of July holiday week, and we are overjoyed for this sweet annual gift. Happy Independence Day, Happy Summer and Happy Season of Berries to all of our members!
We have been grazing on the salmon berries for the last 2 weeks with great anticipation for blueberries and have noticed that the bears in the area have a similar anticipation.
Our leeks have happily been planted over at Carnation Farm ground, and we are loving how well the winter squash is growing.
Our harvest days are full and dominating most of our time now as the cooler weather has allowed for a little less pressure in terms of heat.
We have headed into our second succession of lettuces and are starting in on our first harvest of broccoli for the season. The kales and cabbages will be next as we wait for baby carrots and beets to get slightly bigger. Summer squash and zucchini are blooming in great amounts with flowers and baby veggies in constant motion.
We wish all of you a safe and happy first week of July. In keeping with the Native American names for the moon, we will leave the Strawberry Moon and enter into the Full Buck Moon. This is the time in which the buck’s antlers are in full growth mode and this time is also referred to as the Thunder Moon as storms are more frequent. As we spend long days outside and enjoy all that our natural resources offer, the farm will continue growing healthy, organic produce to grace your boxes.
