Farm Happenings for September 7, 2020

Posted on September 5th, 2020 by Andrew Schwerin

A quick list of some of the crops for the season:

The things you have been getting last week and in August. Except eggplants, cherry tomatoes, and tomatoes are about done for now. Peppers, okra, etc continue strong.

Squash and cukes are at their peak, they will likely be done by the end of the month.

Green beans this week.

We have lettuce heads and salad mix this week, and that will mostly continue for the next few months. Also radishes, salad turnips. Bok choy, cilantro. Lots of variety of baby greens. Spinach surprisingly germinated despite poor rainfall last week. I'll plant more again this week.

Sweet potatoes will be available late September through December.

The more mature greens - kale, chard, dandelion, parsley will continue to first hard freeze.

Then November gets more interesting with broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages. Roots crops like beets and carrots also are ready for harvesting, as well as other roots like purple top turnips, daikon radishes, and other radishes.
