The last week of August, always a turning point on a farm. Planting is done, weeding continues, people are getting back-to-school and back-to-work, September and fall are just around the corner. We are still enjoying the summer bounty for our harvests, but we'll soon move onto fall crops. Sadly, a rabbit - who I see run from the garden every single time I go out there - has eaten all of our final lettuce and spinach planting starts. And it's nibbled the tops of our carrots and beets. We can't seem to catch the critter (might be because it has since multiplied into hundreds of critters). But we did quickly plant some more lettuce and spinach, so we hope they will mature in time.
Expect the following in this week's basket:
Corn, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, carrots, shallots, scallions, arugula, lettuce, radicchio, parsley, kale or chard, and possibly melons.
