This summer is flying by already! It’s been a busy one, but that’s a good thing. We’ve tried to get our chores done and then spend some time outdoors. Although we wish a little more rain has fallen for the crops, it’s been nice to be able to spend lots of time outdoors in the summer sun. After everything that’s happened with COVID-19, we all need a little time in the sun.
We’ve been able to keep the deer at bay after an early bout with them. They were after just about everything but they certainly seemed to like the summer squash this year! The lack of rain has been problematic but we have solutions for that too with a water truck and irrigation systems. We’ve been able to keep the crops from getting too thirsty and everything looks healthy and green.
A few major highlights from last week will be back in sweet corn and cantaloupe. Everyone was so happy to see those out last week! This week on our tables at the Rochester Public Market, the Brighton Farmers Market and elsewhere you will find the following crops:
Beets with greens
Sweet Spanish Onions
Chicken and Eggs
We’re looking forward to seeing all our regular customers, CSA pickups, and friends this week. Always glad to meet some new ones too. Be safe, be happy!
