Besides devoting hours to picking strawberries, we've kept up the transplanting with an epic winter squash transplant, basil, lettuce, and corn. Adam's been busy with the first direct plantings of corn, beans, and the summer planting of carrots, and beets. The greens harvests are really picking up, we spend most of the dewy mornings harvesting. With the heat and sun this week, the irrigation managers have spent hours making sure plants handled the transition from cloudy to sunny, and now back again with the correct water for the situation.
We've been working hard and can't wait to share some beautiful produce with you! All our markets are open this week, and we're mostly ready. The lettuce looks incredible, it enjoyed all the rain and clouds, and we've a gorgeous red and green selection of romaine, leaf, and butterhead. Say "Hi" to Caitlan and Jim at the first Saturday Market of the new season. If you frequent Tuesday Market, our new Tuesday Manager, Jen, will also be at Saturday, learning the ropes.
