Week 14 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA

Dobry Den!

As many of you know, Wednesdays are a great day for us at Pekarek’s Produce.  Not only do we get to deliver your weekly CSA bag, but we also get to do the Seward Farmer’s Market.  Seward has always been the “home game” for us and every Wednesday you can see Ryan, the kids and me!

Activities on the farm keep chugging away.  We are done seeding and transplanting for the year, except for some lettuce that is in the cold frames, so hopefully that will allow us to slow down a bit.  The tomatoes have unfortunately slowed down right now.  Its amazing they’ve produced like they did given this year’s weather.  We are now picking on a new patch of water melon and cantaloupe that are ripening, so we should have those for some time yet.  Our sweet corn is officially done for the year.  This last batch of corn never saw rain, so the roots were very shallow – when the wind blew, so did the corn.  It twisted this way and that and layed down, so Ryan and I spent a hot and twisty day picking corn that was half on the ground.  Fun!!

Luckily we were able to run drip tape on the plants right away, so they are looking pretty good today!
