Farm Happenings for May 28, 2019

Posted on May 26th, 2019 by Rae Strobel Barr

Welcome to the second week of the CSA!  The organic strawberries are having a great run and we are so pleased to see them continue in the share....will we get another week out of them?   Its hard to say.   This last few days the weather got hot fast.   Thats good news for some crops and not great for others.  The broccoli will be coming on strong soon, and maybe cauliflower too.    We definitely had to turn on the irrigation.   Can you believe we already are planting and watering crops for the fall harvest?   Spaghetti squash and butternut squash seeds got planted and watered this week.   As I write this email today we are preparing to have some friends from SAL-Sustainable Agriculture Louisville come to the farm and plant the Three Sisters crop--to be harvested in October.   The three sisters are: Corn for cornmeal, Pole Beans and Pumpkins.   We have been growing this plot for the community for about  10 years now!   The corn seed has gone out across the world to be planted thanks to our good friend Stephen Bartlett.   We love this work and hope that you enjoy the good food!
