Week 4 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA

Dobry Den!

This has been a wonderful week at Pekarek’s Produce – yes it is exceedingly hot, but it has not hailed.  Ryan and the crew have been busy pulling weeds, staking tomatoes, cleaning out vegetables hit by the hail, picking, and washing.  They especially had fun walking the potatoes pulling the sunflowers out!  Fun is my word.

Check out how hard the boys work pulling weeds!


Did you Know?

To keep cauliflower heads white, or to blanch them, you need to tie up leaves around the head while it is growing.  This keeps them tasting sweet and a creamy white color.
