Wow we have had an incredibly dry few weeks. It’s now been about 7 weeks without any measurable rainfall. Things on the farm are very dry to say the least. Luckily we have about 90% of the farm under drip irrigation so we are able to keep the plants going but not necessarily thriving and in those conditions the pests are really able to take hold. We have never had such pest pressure especially from striped cucumber beetles which will likely effect the zucchini and possible cucumbers harvests. These storms that are coming our way keep splitting up and missing us or just disappearing as soon as they get close.
This Monday June 27 is week #6 CSA. Thanks to everyone for all your kind words about the food you have been receiving. Please note that net Saturday July 2, I am moving to a different table at the Meridian Farmers Market. I will be in the pavilion (as usual) but moving to the Southwest corner (where Wilber has been for years). There will be quite a bit of shuffling in the pavilion for this summer so don’t forget to look for your favorite vendors. Here are some things I have been looking at on and off the farm for the past few weeks. Feel free to follow me on Instagram where I post most every day. Look to the right on this page to follow.
