2019: Week 8

Phew what a busy week we just had! From here on out all the weeks are pretty busy. This week at the farm we completed the garlic harvest and have been doing oh so much weeding. Weeds thrive in this weather, and seem to double in size every time you blink. They take advantage of us getting busy with bigger and bigger harvests every morning, continuing our seeding and transplanting and other field projects throughout the week (setting up irrigation) and take off when we’re not looking!

This week we welcome cucumbers to the box along with fava beans. We are having a bumper crop of favas right now, we hope you enjoy them! If you’re unfamiliar with out to prepare them, look here.
