Last night we got chased from the field by an actual rainstorm! I was thrilled, until I got home to a 7 month old who was not pleased with all the thunder crashes the rain had brought with it. Can’t win them all, I guess!A lot of you have been asking about how the dry weather has affected the farm. For some plants, the dry weather has actually been good. Many plant diseases need a lot of moisture to develop, so we’re seeing very healthy plants right now. Because we have drip irrigation in place, we are able get the plants all the water they need without getting the leaves wet. This is especially beneficial for plants like tomatoes, winter squash, and eggplant. Hopefully we will see the much stronger harvests of those crops this year because of the favorable conditions!
I want to thank everyone for once again sharing photos and recipes! I love to see what you are doing with your shares, especially after a long day on the farm.
