Welcome to this week's newsletter.
It's already June, and the rainy, summer days are here! I thought you might enjoy some before-and-after photos of our fields.
Weather conditions have been "feast or famine" here with quite an abundance of Mother Nature's cleansing washes. In the past two weeks, we have "enjoyed" at least 10 inches of rain, making for soggy, unmanageable fields which we cannot wade through.
Our pesticide-free Traditional Southern Field Pea crops were planted and growing, but many have been underwater for days and days. It's a wait-and-see if they will make it, or if the fields require planting again. Thanks to all of you who have placed reservations.
Last year we sold out of these hearty, versatile peas, so be sure to phone your reservation early! If you'll want unshelled bushels of peas, please phone ahead. They should be ready at the end of July and throughout August.
Our other specialty squashes are nearly sold out. Due to early summer-like weather, our harvest was limited this year.
There are still some beautiful fresh beets (perfect for juicing, canning, roasting or boiling). Please phone if you are interested in canning beets. These are our pesticide-free, small-to-medium size beets without the green tops - available for a short time.
