What was I just saying last week about taking time to appreciate the days? This week I feel like I can’t wait any longer. It’s time for certain veggies to just get on with it already!
When I peek in the hoop house, there are cherry tomatoes just starting to turn scattered here and there among the greenery. The green beans are starting to fill in and the collards are slowly putting on some size. Little tiny eggplants are starting to form.
It came at just the right time to keep everything alive. I have to admit, it was touch and go there for the garden last week. We over-taxed our well on Thursday and ran out of water for a bit. That was really not super fun.
These early season veggie shares tend to be heavy on the leafy greens. This week we have a smattering of different leaves for you to enjoy. It’s been a full-time job keeping everything watered in the heat and wind.
It feels like we had a bit of a soft open last week with our emergency stir fry packages. Thank you to everyone who participated. It was really short notice. However, getting those veggies to you was a thrill.
Drought and Weird Weather
Part of the reason we had such an “emergency” with the greens was the crazy up and down temperatures we’ve had over the last few weeks.
