At the Farm we have begun harvesting beans, and cucumbers have started to come on strong. These are added to the zuchinnis and summer squash that was part of the CSA last week along with some herbs and edible flowers to be added to the the salad mix.
Here is a list of what Two Toad Farm will harvest this week:
Salad mix, beet greens, young onions, bunching leeks, dill, parsley, basil, chamomile, nasturtiums, calendula, beans, peas, summer squash, zuchinni, snap peas, hakurei baby turnips, purple top turnips, radishes, swiss chard, red russian kale, winterbor kale, cabbage, napa cabbage, kohlrabi, 3 kinds of new potatoes, pac chois, broccoli, beets, cucumbers, garlic… maybe more.
I’ve working hard trellising tomatoes, and watching the peppers start to size up. I have to thank the three colonies of bees at the farm that are really helping to increase fruit set on the cucurbits and nightshades.
Summer is finally here. Enjoy the season.
