Farm Happenings for July 31, 2021

Posted on July 26th, 2021 by Kirsten Simmons

We've entered the part of summer where it's just hot. On the farm we're putting up deer fence, weeding beds and tweaking our microgreen production to try to minimize the mold that's been wiping out our pea trays. Once the fence is up, we'll move about 1500 seedlings from the greenhouse to the field and start filling up beds for fall production. Everything happens in 4-6 hour chunks, because it's just too hot to do more than that.

On a different note, I'm considering whether to shift the EAV pickup to the farm. We're about 10 minutes south of the current pickup location, and we're finally getting to the point where there aren't random hazards lying around. I'll be reaching out to the EAV pickup folks in the next few weeks to get feedback from each of you, so be on the lookout for that.
