Thanks for the help from CSA members. There is still much to care for and harvest, so any one that wants to work for food exchange or cash, let me know.
Everyone wants lettuce, but it’s slow growing. We plant weekly.
A new crop of yellow summer squash is starting to flower.
Cantaloupes are looking good. Many more to come.
I’ve run out of Delicata squash. Plenty of acorn and butternut. The small butternut varieties are coming in now but the larger Waltham butternut is coming soon. The small Honeynut variety is not yet ripe.
Carmen sweet red pepper is producing in record numbers.
Sweet potatoes are about a month away from harvest.
Ginger is growing well and will be harvested in October.
A new spinach crop has been seeded. Should be ready by mid October.
