Production and Distribution
We've been moving a lot of produce the last few weeks. Too much to stop and take a lot of pictures of. Here's Gayle washing and weighing produce for delivery into the EatWell Restaurants.
Cultivation and Maintenance
|Pulling out the old Mustard Greens|
The farm is in transition from Spring to Fall. Several of our spring plantings have bolted or are just failing and need to be pulled out and replanted. This week we pulled out all the Peas, the first Arugula and Mustard Greens. Then we have to clean the bed and prep it for planting.
The rain let up toward the end of the week and we were able to get some seeds in the ground. We planted Chard, Beets, Carrots, Brussel Sprouts, Cauliflower, Choi, Spaghetti Squash and Pumpkins. This is the beginning of the fall planting, how can it be that time already?
This is where we pulled out the Mustard Greens and Beets, what's left is just weeds which I took out with the wheel hoe and a rake.

I had dinner at Grillfish on the 4th of July. I ordered the daily pasta which was a hand made ravioli stuffed with our farm Zucchini. I loved the Zucchini filling and the creamy tomato sauce.
