In Your CSA Share - Week# 6

Posted 7/18/2019 12:08pm by Aaron Lichtenberg.

Hello Farm Faithful!

It has been a real scorcher this week, and it ain't over yet...just wait for Sat.'s forecast at 97+, what?! Alas, we can't let up as there are more irrigation lines to run, weeds to pull, tarps to move, seedlings to plant, etc...and we had to also pull 1200 feet of garlic this week, whew. (...should've had a garlic pulling party ;). In addition, this is also an even more "event-full" week, as we are designing for a wedding at Timber Hill Farm as well as hosting our first private flower workshop of the year...we're really hitting the apex of seasonal insanity now!

As long as we can keep water on the plants, everything (except us) is loving this heat and it seems that things are taking off overnight. One of these days, a time lapse video should be in order.

In the flower world, the sunflowers are really jumping...for those of you who missed out on the first week of sunflowers, you'll be able to enjoy the harvest this week. Dahlias (in the tunnel) have doubled in size, and we are slowly starting to see a bloom a day...hopefully the ones outside will come in sometime before the season ends!
