Today I planted the last of the 2019 transplants ahead of the all-day rain we are supposed to get tomorrow. These last plants included: spinach, beets, and more salad mix. Plus I direct seeded some arugula and radishes. Now we just need that rain to make everything happy!
I am moving firmly into what I consider the fall tasks here on the farm (but I'm still hoping for several weeks of summer weather!). All of the onions have been harvested and are drying in the greenhouse and the squash will follow shortly. I have sown buckwheat on empty beds that won't be used this season and I am slowing pulling out plants that are at the end of their life. The garlic is nearly all trimmed and you get the first taste of it in your shares this week! The garlic is big, beautiful and delicious this year so I hope you enjoy.
We have another week of sweet corn and although the cobs may be slightly smaller, they are still delicious! The tomatoes are cranking out lots of ripe fruit and, barring some unexpected disease, should continue for several more weeks yet. The zucchini, however, is nearly finished and I expect this week or next to see the last of the zucchini.
