Farm Happenings for August 20, 2022

Posted on August 19th, 2022 by Bryce Baumann

The start of school and the resumption of all the activities that go along with that makes for a hectic time of the year for us and many of you. Suddenly, the change in bedtimes and early morning routines seems to compress time! The more leisurely meal prep time is now bumped by making sure kids have lunch, book bags, permission forms signed, and are getting to bed on time.

While the start of school seems like an end to summer, the farm gardens are still tooling along. The cooler days and the recent rains have been well-timed for all the fall crops. We've got over 5,000 tomato plants that will start producing soon, well protected in our high tunnels from the late summer dews that exacerbate blight. You can also expect many of the fall crops to come into harvest soon, including: leaf lettuce, red peppers, radishes, beets, carrots, and baby kale. 

Since you may be rebooting your calendar, just a reminder that the regular season ends the second week of October.
