Week #11 of Sunflower Farm CSA


| 8/28/2012 8:52:14 AM



Sunflower Farm CSA is really humming along. Last week was # 11 and the workload is finally manageable.

The boxes are getting heavier and the feedback continues to be positive. We are switching from ‘lighter’ stuff like lettuce and spinach to more fall stuff like carrots, potatoes, onions, summer squash (zucchini), corn and melons.

We had a brief reprieve from the drought with a bit of rain, but certainly not as much as we needed. Now we are being more targeted in our watering so it’s not as intensive as it was in July. July really is crunch month for a garden. Basically everything is in the ground and screaming for heat and sunlight and water. Nature provided us with lots of heat and sun this July, just no water.

So now with more time for other tasks I’ve been busy taking out pea fencing, rototilling areas that are finished and basically trying to clean up what I can. The weeds are still winning the war and I hate to admit that often at this time of year my resolve to eliminate every weed, or even the bulk of them is radically diminished.
