CSA week #2

We got .85 inches of rain this morning. After a lot of rain our produce is SANDY. 

**The greens just might need a triple rinse to get all the sand off.**
This weeks share: Bok Choy, Strawberries, Asparagus, Romaine, Swiss Chard

While it was raining this morning, we worked in the High Tunnel, tying up the tomatoes.  The heirloom tomatoes are looking good.  5-6 more weeks until expected harvest date.

I got a quick peek in the field when it stopped raining this afternoon:
Kholrabi (German Cabbage) is sizing and will be ready for harvest soon.

We planted a lot more onions this year, because we liked them so much last year!  YAY!

Romaine to come for a few more weeks.  You can see in this picture the nice job Pop-Pop did cultivating to get the weeds between the rows.  It is good to do that when it is dry and it should stay dry for a day after you cultivate so all the weeds that have been uprooted die completely instead of re-rooting.  Today would not be a good day for cultivating.
