Summer is here and crops are growing well, with plenty of rain and enough heat and sun.
Our strawberry crop is done for the year. Because of so many night time thundershowers, the quality of the berries was not as good as they could have been. The berries we picked were very flavorful and delicious, but the season went by too fast.
Our peas are all coming in - snow, snap, and shell; fava beans will be brought in this week, followed by many varieties of fresh beans and summer squashes. Baby carrots and scallions have just begun, so we'll be bringing them in soon. Herbs are plentiful and will be brought in regularly. Try drying or freezing to preserve these as we will be bringing mostly in early summer and fall.
Happy Independence Day to all!
