Week 4 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA

Dobry Den!

Its been another busy week here on the farm.  Every week we go through the process of picking and packaging produce as well as maintenance, irrigation and planting.  We are excited to say that we have started digging beets.  These beauties are delicious- so enjoy.

This week we’ve tied cauliflower.  When the cauliflower head is exposed to sunlight, it turns a yellowish-brown. To prevent this, we take the leaves of the plant and tie them around the head so that it is not exposed to sunlight.

Ryan has also been busy with other maintenance activities from stringing tomatoes to training cucumbers.  In the next picture, Ryan is training or trellacing the cucumbers by clipping the vines to a string.  Only the cucumbers that are growing in this tunnel get trained.

Ryan, Katie, and Crew
