Farm Happenings for July 30, 2019

Posted on July 26th, 2019 by Alaina Jenne

This week hasn't been to bad with the heat, but the previous weeks have had us all wilting! Our lettuces have really taken a hit. I am not sure if you have noticed, but you most likely have, our Spring Mix taste a little bit different. Lettuces do not like hot temperatures and growing them during the summer months can be a challenge. Excessive heat, even with regular watering, will cause them to flower and have a bitter taste. Due to the heat we will not have any spring mix for a few weeks. But don't worry, we will have it soon!
