Bringing home the harvest 6-23-15

Farm News:

We drew up plans for an ark last week and started searching for two of each kind, just in case. We’re glad it proved unnecessary. What a lot of water! We called off last week’s pizza night because of it, and it made for some exciting transplanting and harvesting weather Thursday and Friday – but it also filled Bull and Swan Creeks for fun floating on Saturday and Sunday so we could ring in the summer properly.    The four piggies got a fresh piece of ground to live on today – we moved their pen just a little further east so they’re not living in a mud hole. They’ll appreciate the cleaner environment for at least a minute, but they’ll make quick work of mucking it up.  Has anyone noticed that it’s a bit warm? The farm crew has begun a hot weather work schedule, starting work at daybreak and quitting before the heat gets too stifling. Long, lazy afternoons are lovely. Ah, summertime. – Cammie

Farm News:

We have been a bit soggy around the farm here lately!  All the water is great for our crops and also great for the weeds.  Because we have gotten so much rain this spring, we are seeing a little bit of disease on some of our crops, like some brown slimy rot on the bottoms of lettuce and purple splotch on our onions and garlic. These bulb plants are ready to be harvested – we have onions curing in the greenhouse and garlic hanging in the barn. The plant disease doesn’t affect taste or edibility on onions, but it probably will reduce the amount of time we can store them without problems.  So expect to get a decent amount of onions and garlic over the next few weeks! Speaking of onions – we tried a new thing this year and put our onions on plastic mulch.  We have starting using more biodegradable plastic mulch in our fields, particularly with longer-lived crops like onions, kale, tomatoes, eggplant and peppers.  Plastic mulch reduces our weeding time significantly, conserves moisture, and warms the soil to help plants grow quicker in the spring.  We really like the biodegradable option because it breaks down in our fields. We just recently switched to a corn based plastic, which breaks down even faster (something we are still getting used to!)  ~Kimby
