Weedfest 3.0 2014

Hello fellow fearless farmers!

Thanks to all who showed up Saturday to help weed the jungle! Tracey, Clare, Dave, Ray, Becki, Carla, Teresa, Allen, Christian –  It is beautiful now, and  bountiful with lots of tomatoes, cukes, peppers, herbs galore.  The tomatoes are ripening and will be ready in a few days again, so feel free to come pick this weekend!  This month will continue to see tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, herbs, chard, kale, zucchini, some leeks, dill, lavendar, basil, thyme…   The plums should be ready soon – give them until the weekend, and the pears as well.  Remember, pears need to sit in the fridge for a week or two, and then bring them out on the counter to ripen completely for another couple of days. The red pears are looking pretty good.  If the little tiny spots are brown – the pear is ready.  Apples won’t be ready in the orchard for a few more weeks, even some into late October.

Happy harvest!   Next official work party won’t be until we put the “baby to bed” in November.  Brrrrr….

Suzanne
