Carrots, lettuce, basil, romano beans, cucumbers, summer squash, red onions and maybe tomatoes? Fruit set on the tomatoes is looking very promising, with the first tomatoes ripening very slowly – ultimately that should be a good thing, but for now it’s a bit of a tease and I hope we’ll see the first ripe ones in next week’s share. The first romano beans this week were a nice treat and I’m hoping we’ll have enough to more in the shares this coming week. The lettuce should be summer crisp this coming week.
We had a good week of catch up on weeding and preparing beds for the upcoming plantings. Next week is a big planting week for the fall shares with lettuce, radicchio, fennel, carrots, radishes, and rutabagas all in the plan. Meanwhile we’ll also be stringing up the peppers to support them as their fruits start to get heavier, continuing to train the cucumbers and tomatoes, and knock back the weeds.
