The first fabulous-tasting dry farmed tomatoes are here, as well as the first Yellow Hungarian and Padron peppers. Lettuce still needs to size up; should have plenty again next week. This week, arugula is abundant. Green beans: unfortunately the first three successions this year were planted in a heavier soil (higher clay content), which meant water drainage was not optimal. This resulted in the plants getting “wet feet”, which promoted the growth of a fungus which girdles the stems at the base of the the plants, stunting both growth and yield. The newer plantings are looking good though, so I am expecting that in a couple weeks we should be back to normal, harvesting large quantities and supplying all the shares. In the meantime enjoy the abundance of raspberries, blackberries and strawberries, yum!!
