2013 week 14

Please excuse my absence from blogging. 

Three cheers for WATERMELON!  Hip Hip Hooray!  Watermelon you were worth the wait!

This week you will find black garlic in your share from Obis One, a farm in Pennsville.  To learn more about black garlic and for some recipes check out their website. Defintely have to try the Orzo, Cherry Tomatoe, Black Garlic Recipe.  Amazing!

Sweet corn harvest in morning light.
We are starting the downward slope of the season.  Time that was used for planting and prunning is now being used for tearing down and cleaning up. 

The crew is pulling up stakes and stacking them on the wagon for next year.

Phil is mowing the tomatoes with the bush hog.
On one hand we still have a long way to go. We have a tomato field and eggplant field that we haven't even started harvesting, ready in 2 weeks.  But on the other hand many fields are finished and need to be cleaed up.  Tomato field one and two just had the stakes pulled out and are being mowed up and plastic lifted, as we speak. 

Dreaming of the fall and PUMPKINS!
