It’s been a busy week! I created work for myself late last week by not watching where I was driving and took out a water hydrant! I needed to replace it to use water to wash vegetables in the packing shed so I rented a mini excavator and dug a hole next to the destroyed hydrant, put in a new hydrant and water runs again. Took a bit of time but it was actually kind of fun to run the Mini X as the rental guys call it. My wife didn’t think much of this unnecessary work or expense though!
The weather actually seems warm. Butternut squash seems to need a threat of cold to turn the right color, I’m still waiting, not a good thing because there’s 1000s laying there so with 4 market Saturdays left there is too many. This week we did harvest a nice kaboucha squash for you.
Here is the list, if anything is new to you please ask one of us about it.
- Carola potatoes
- scarlet turnip
- red cabbage
- kaboucha squash
- delicata squash
