Week 6 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA 2013

Dobry Den!

Here’s the most important reminder of the week.  We will be having a farm tour on

Sunday, July 14 from 4:00 – 5:40.

We will hop on a hay rack, meet the crew, take a tour around the farm and see what’s happening.  RSVPs are appreciated to Katie Pekarek.  You can call, text, or email at (402) 560-3110 or pekareksproduce@hotmail.com.  We are located on14 miles north of Seward right on Highway 15.  Our address is 2447 Road O.

There’s been a lot of excitement on the farm next week.  We’ve been busy seeding romaine and transplanting cabbage.  But the biggest accomplishment has been getting pipe laid.  The majority of our crops are drip irrigated.  This means connecting drip lines (hoses) to hydrants located around the farm.

This is a very efficient way to irrigate, however crops that are under drip tend to have a relatively shallower root system – which is fine in most cases.  Sweet corn needs to have deeper roots or it will blow over in our Nebraska winds, amidst many other problems.
