May 2017 Farm Update

by danberube on May 25, 2017

Hello Farm Friends!

We have been so busy over the past few weeks, and today’s rainstorm has provided a break from planting and some “free time” to write a farm update.

Planting has been going very well in the new field. Already, hundreds of tomato plants are in the ground, along with tomatillos, leeks, cucumbers, cabbage, kale, bok choi and lettuce seedlings. The garlic crop also looks excellent this year and is on track for an early July harvest.

Having one farm site this year has really helped move the work along. It’s much easier when you only have to set up one irrigation system instead of three, and don’t have to constantly move equipment from place to place. Last season we weren’t able to finish planting until June 18 for our summer crops. This year we should be done by June 4, which hopefully means we’ll have more of the seasonal veggies you love sooner. Over the next 10-14 days we’ll be working hard to get zucchinis, cucumbers, winter squash, watermelons, beans and a few more greens in the ground. There is so much to look forward to and the first CSA pickup is only 6 weeks away!

Thanks to everyone who has renewed and welcome to all our new CSA members. I’m so glad we are farming for you this summer!

If you haven’t renewed yet, there is still time so don’t miss out! Download the order form, and if you have any questions, please email me at info@berubefarm.com.

For more updates, be sure to check out the Berube Farm Facebook and Instagram pages!

I look forward to seeing you at the farm this summer.

-Dan
