From the Fields of Freedom Valley Farm 7.6.16

Posted 7/6/2016 6:30pm by Jim Baughman.

Hi Folks,

Well it’s about the weather again. Just hours before the writing of this farm newsletter high winds hit the farm and did structure damage to one of our greenhouses. This is the second time this year. I feel somewhat lucky this time as the structure itself was not damaged but the plastic covering was tore off. Still an expense and what will be a large undertaking to replace. Luckily everyone is OK. At this time I’m not sure what damage may have occurred to some of our crops in the field. This storm came in quick and powerful with little to no time to react or respond. Everything looks kind of laid over from a far but I am sure most will be ok.  So we’ll pull on our boots on, try to hold our head up, and move on. The sun will surely rise in the morning.

Planted this week: We continue to seed our fall crops of kale, cabbage and broccoli. Also seeded on Saturday before the rain hit were succession crops of lettuce, spinach, and salad greens. Fall leeks were transplanted to the field on Tuesday and Wed morning.

In your share this week: Everyone should get their first taste of tomatoes. I think we have just enough ripened up to give everyone one or two. Mesclun salad mix, eggplant, cucumber, summer onions. You will also be receiving zucchini. Please check out the recipes for different zucchini cakes (attached to your email reminder). Zucchini makes some of the best cakes and breads I have ever enjoyed. They are always so moist and flavorful. For more zucchini recipes check out the recipes on our website at www.freedomvalleyfarm.com
