Thanks to Hannah for the beautiful farm pics!
|A super unusual summer garden plant! Lettuce in August!|
Lettuce does not sprout very well when the temperature is in the 80’s. It will usually just stay dormant. And if you do get it to germinate or sprout during the months that we receive 90 degree weather, the mature heads or baby lettuce usually tastes very bitter. But it was never terribly hot this summer, so my little 4th of July experiment worked.
This lettuce will fill the boxes of our very lucky CSA members this week!
|Arugula is growing quickly|

|This is our tasty tomato high tunnel, hoophouse, or cheap Haygrove. Whatever you call it, it helps us make some delicious organic tomatoes!|
|Fruitful harvest. This is Defiant, Ozark Pink, Arkansas Traveler, and Eva Purple Ball.|
