Week 8 Predictions

Summer and Spring items have been getting a bit mixed together as they do many years. For week 7 we started out on Monday with the crunchy and sweet superschmelz kohlrabi and then switched on Thursday to the crunchy and sweet hakurei turnips and added in a bit of basil. For week 8 we’ll try to reverse that and even things out. As usual expect some lettuce, most likely the delicate and crisp jester from our friends down at Wild Garden Seeds in Philomath. We’re going to continue with Napoli carrots, and one type or another of garlic. Chard was on the plan, but it’s looking a little rough so we’ll probably switch to beets with their greens, which are very much chard like (same species even, Beta vulgaris for those of you who like Latin). The peas are done, we took down the trellises and moved them to the second planting of cucumbers and then mowed the plants to feed the soil. We have yet to pick favas so those are a strong possibility and fill that slot the peas were occupying. Cucumbers will likely continue, and summer squash might make its first appearance in small quantities. Other possible crops for the week include kale, arugula, and the difficult to predict broccoli. Stay tuned right here to find out on Monday what we actually pick…
