Week 16 – Pekarek’s Produce CSA

Hello Folks!

Thank you to all of you who joined us on the farm tour this weekend.  We had a great turn out even though the mud didn’t let us take any hay rack rides. We had a little mud before the tour, but we have a lot of mud now!  This is the time of year where we basically plan to work in mud boots from now through the end of December.  The cool weather has been a bit of a needed reprieve for the crew and the rain yesterday actually allowed us to catch up on a few things. We had a nice 1.40 inches out of the evening and day!

Carrots have been planted in one of the high tunnels.  We are still waiting for them to come up.  It’s one of those crops that you seed and then you wait for 2 weeks to see if they are going to grow – its agonizing!  Cucumber plants in the greenhouse are getting taller and we will probably begin harvesting slicing cucumbers in the greenhouse in the next week and a half or so.

We’ve started to harvest fall crops this week – yummy!  The pumpkins are beautiful!  There are great sweet potatoes in the field.

Unfortunately the rain chased us out, so we’ve only just begun.  Spaghetti squash is looking good – If you’ve never cooked it before, be sure to check out these instructions for spaghetti squash.
