Summer seems to be here this week (in may.. who knew?) . The heat and lack of rain has been hard on the plants, but they keep giving and giving! I have enjoyed showing some of you around the land and hope you make it back again soon.
The spinach bolted, and is gone, but the peas are coming on strong, and the kales and collards are holding very well. There may be a break in lettuce next week, but i have plenty this week. i am especially fond of the variety ‘tom thumb’ miniature green butter lettuce. it could be it’s own little salad presentation without ripping the leaves off. hope you are all having a good holiday weekend and week. see you at the farm cheers, christy
