Rainbow Tomato
Notes From The Field
By Derek McGeehan
It was a busy, fun, and eventful week and weekend on the farm. It was a holiday week with some rain so we were able to slow down a bit and give the crew some time off. There's a brief period in early July when we're between the Big Planting and the Big Harvesting when there's an ever-so-slight lull where we can breathe easier and rest up a tad for the final push of the season. It was brief, however, and the Big Harvest began today with the garlic, always a good community endeavor. Last night we celebrated with the second potluck of the season, had a wonderful meal, learned about kefir making, and saw some rainbows. This week we'll begin planting cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower for the fall; soon we'll harvest carrots and onions; and pretty soon potatoes will be ready. And, tomatoes are starting to ripen!
