Crop List: Cosmic Mix, Sugar Snap Peas, Snow Peas, Kale or Collards, Sandy Head Lettuce, Baby Garlic, Dill, Cilantro and maybe Tomatoes
The tomatoes are making their way around to the sites. They come on slow and steady. We keep careful records of who gets them, and make sure a different site gets them the following week. If all goes well we should soon have enough for all the sites at once! Go tomatoes go!!!
The pea picking has been going well. Also slow and steady! We are opening the patch up if you want to come pick your own peas. The seed we got this year was a bit...eclectic. You may have noticed last week's sugar snap peas also had some snow and shell peas mixed in. This was from our seed supplier and when harvesters are picking it is hard to sort them all out, so we just kept them together. It is a pre-made pea salad!
Pea Picking hours: Tue, Thur, Fri: 8-8; Sat: 8-12
How to find the peas: Farm address is 397 E 8500 S., in Victor (Please leave your dog at home!!). Park in the main parking area. Walk towards the building with the sun mosaic on it (the sunny john, in case you need a bathroom). The peas are 3rd and 4th row in the garden closest to the sunny john. A tiny bit South West, and about 20 feet away. Please bring a bucket or other vessel to pick into. If you bring children, keep them off of the plants and keep them close. There are other plants in the same section we need to harvest later! There are 2 rows, you may pick from either of them.
Baby garlic this week, yum! We have now had garlic curls and baby garlic in the shares. If you are curious about the life cycle of garlic, you can check out its full story on the garlic scape recipe page. These babies are super juicey with thick paper that needs to be pulled off. Also, keep them in your fridge as they have not yet been cured like the garlic we will give out in the fall.
