Farm Happenings for May 24, 2022

Posted on May 22nd, 2022 by Rae Strobel Barr

Wow, what a first week of CSA we had!    We are still getting plenty of strawberries so be sure to get your hands on some of those!  The greens are another story though as you may have seen from Rae's email we got a BAD hail storm on Thursday that really damaged about 1 acre of crops.   Some fared better than others.   All the high tunnels with our spinach and lettuce are fine.   On our farm we have always had a fear of hail damage but in 16 years we had never seen anything that hurt the crops like this storm.   As always we have a plan to bounce back and still keep planting!   Never stop planting is the main lesson of Veggie Farming!
