This weeks shares to include:
8 Ball zucchini
It has been a very dry week, awaiting rain so we don't lose the majority of our herbs would be great. The sweet corn has done well even if it did take an exceptionally long time this year.
The large red beefsteak tomatoes were not grown here on our farm, instead they are from Lakeview Organic which is an amish Certified Organic farm located in fillmore/Centerville NY area. The cherry tomatoes are grown here on our farm. After our terrible case of late blight last year we opted not to grow the large ones to give that area of the field a "break" and has been left "fallow" this year, meaning it has been left empty.
Again, more not so good news, the deer have gotten into the purple cauliflower and it will not be available this year, as it is too late to replant it. (it takes about 6 weeks to start them indoors and then another 8-9 weeks to grow outside). Although we did get the DEC nuisance permits they have still done a lot of damage. Current estimate around $6000.00 worth of damage, sigh.
The high tunnel has been replanted for fall items, to be expected starting in about a month! I look forward to having our fresh greens again.
