csa week 6

A special thank you to those that did a little rain dance, we got over an inch last week.  the plants are responding well; soaking up that water to make more cells for girth and to send them into the next stage of life.  During my weekly walk about today I saw some baby summer squash forming as well as some broccoli florets forming.  I feel like once I get to strawberries week,  the shares start to fill up with more diversity, in other words: spring is turning into summer!

A little about lettuce: I intend to grow lettuce all 4 seasons, and always have a bed to work off of.  This week I’ll be putting shade cloth on the newer beds and with consistent irrigation they maintain a crispness without the bitterness of  summer lettuce.  This is not to say you’ll get it every week, but it is a staple at blue hour farm and I get rave reviews from my market customers.

I’m offering prorated csa shares. If you know anyone who might be interested please pass along my info. Cheers, Grant
