Week 3 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA 2013

Dobry Den!

Like always, there are lots of activities that have been taking place on the farm.  We had a bit of a watermelon debacle earlier this season.  Our watermelons are started in trays in a greenhouse or cold frames.  Unfortunately we had horrible germination – meaning we had some varieties where only 1 seed out of 70 came up!  Brittany is in the picture below working on re-seeding watermelons.

Luckily re-seeding is not a common activity on the farm – but stringing tomatoes (and peppers) is!  Now that the sun has decided to join us for the summer, the tomatoes grow much faster.  If you’ve ever grown tomatoes you might be used to putting them in a cage.  On the farm, we use stakes and string woven in-between and around the plants to keep them standing.
