Week 11 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA 2013

Dobry Den!

Let me start off by apologizing for the lack of CSA Newsletters in the last two weeks.  There has been so much activity on the farm, that it seemed impossible to get anything done inside.

For one thing, Brett (our transplant grower in Sutton) dropped off some plants at our house a week and a half ago.  So last Wednesday, we transplanted 11,000 broccoli plants!  We used our transplanter that seats four, but soil conditions and plant characteristics meant that we had to tuck  many of these plants in by hand.

We also started putting up the new greenhouse.  If you’ll recall, we are going to work with UNL this winter/spring to see if it is feasible and profitable to grow winter strawberries in Nebraska.  This means that we need to have this greenhouse up and in production by early September.

We’ve also had a few monuments in personnel.  Most of our workers started back to school on August 12, including our Kindergartener and Pre-schooler.  The remaining two will go back to school next week.  In their absence, we have been making changes to the crew.
